As disputes grow ever more complex and multi-jurisdictional, the law of evidence is coming into ever sharper focus. This is an area where the civil and criminal law intersect, and where litigation and/or prosecutions frequently takes place against a regulatory backdrop. We have acted successfully on a number of discrete applications relating to cross-border evidence issues, and of course these issues inform our wider Commercial Litigation practice.
What we do
We advise parties in contentious proceedings, whether these proceedings are before the English courts or in another jurisdiction. We act both in situations where we are the principal law firm with conduct of the primary case, or where advice is needed on a discrete evidential issue. Our expertise covers litigation, regulatory matters and criminal proceedings. We focus on achieving a pragmatic result – whether this is acting to obtain the broadest evidence permissible by law, or to limit disclosure when that is appropriate.
What we are known for
Our expertise in handling civil, criminal and regulatory cases enables us to provide realistic and pragmatic advice on a cost effective basis in even the most complex of cases. We have acted in recent times on a number of Letters of Request under the Hague Convention, as well as on Letters Rogatory issued by a US Court in a high-profile criminal matter. We have acted for the liquidators of a company in Ireland to successfully obtain evidence from a bank officer resident in England, which was heavily contested by the bank. We also regularly advise on the use of Mutual Legal Assistance Treaties to obtain evidence by UK and foreign regulatory and criminal authorities.
