The most common activities of lawyers are representing their clients before the court or arbitration boards, but there are many other tasks involved as well. According to Van Emstede & Partners it is often better to avoid court cases and arbitration altogether. If problems arise in the chain from yacht designer and material & equipment suppliers via yard and buyer that could lead to disputes, it is often better to convince all parties of the mutually realistic expectations and make agreements that can meet these expectations. This method saves lots of time and costs, and even minimises the expenses of the law firm itself.
