Dispute Resolution

What we do

We advise across a diverse range of disputes, from domestic to multi-million pound international. We are actively involved in litigation in all levels of the English courts. With our network of offices and associated firms across the UK, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and North America, our reach is truly international. We also co-ordinate litigation through our extensive network of lawyers throughout the world.

Our experience lies in dealing with claims in a wide variety of areas, including banking and other financial and regulatory transactions, corporate and commercial deals, Share Purchase Agreement disputes, healthcare, commercial fraud, shareholder disputes, corporate governance, reputation management (including defamation), IT and intellectual property, partnership disputes, professional negligence, directors' disqualification, outsourcing, procurement and other diverse areas, such as disputes arising out of dealing in, collecting and owning artwork.

Developing a winning strategy

We help clients develop a strategy that is consistent with their commercial goals, such as minimising reputation risk and maintaining business relationships, and aim to resolve the dispute as swiftly and cost effectively as possible.

Whether asserting rights or defending claims, we carefully assess the facts and merits of the case, and determine the underlying risks at an early stage and throughout the claim. Where possible, we endeavour to resolve the matter through negotiation or by using available alternatives such as arbitration and mediation.

When a commercial solution cannot be reached, we have an impressive track record of achieving results for clients through the courts. We vigorously pursue claims on behalf of clients and take all steps to defend their position.
