MLI often serves as an intermediate between two or more parties, skillfully exerts influence and negotiates to reach an agreement or compromise. We build strong, lasting relationships and endeavor to solve problems before they stifle growth or grow into costly disputes. MLI also identifies various risks, works out how to minimize them and uses these insights as the basis for a solid corporate or government policy. We use our experience, language skills and top contacts to help businesses and entities achieve their strategic objectives by:

• determining the best route for an engagement

• helping avoid or manage problems/disputes before they run out of control
• providing top-level advice on operating in challenging situations
