Wilson and Gruchot: Negotiating Effective Contracts and Dealing with Disputes


Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands (April 2019)The 2019 IR Global Negotiating Effective Contracts and Dealing with Disputes publication features contributions from Graham Thompson Partner and head of the firm’s Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice in the Turks and Caicos Islands Stephen Wilson QC, and Senior Associate Tony Gruchot.

The publication represents a collaboration between IR Global members and the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) that offers jurisdiction-specific perspectives on contract negotiations and dispute resolution. The Turks and Caicos Islands is one of the featured jurisdictions, along with contributions from firms in North America, Latin America, the Middle East & North Africa and Asia/Pacific regions.

Wilson and Gruchot provide perspectives on the following questions:

  1. 1. What is your best practice approach when advising General Counsel to ensure dispute resolution claims are to their real advantage and do not obstruct enforcement proceedings?
  2. 2. Are there any particular rules around funding litigation in your jurisdiction that General Counsel should be aware of?
  3. 3. What techniques are typically used by international counterparties in your experience when attempts to gain the initiative during a dispute? How important are civil procedural rules? 

Wilson and Gruchot also provide five important tops for successful negotiations.
