Dispute Resolution

What we do

We advise across a diverse range of commercial disputes, working with our clients to achieve the best possible solutions to their disputes. With our extensive network of lawyers both in the UK and across the world, we have the strength and depth to provide a fully co-ordinated, domestic and international dispute resolution service.

We act for national and international banks and other financial institutions, as well as public and private companies, government departments, a wide range of public bodies, and high net worth individuals. We are experts in advising on disputes arising from banking and other financial transactions, corporate and commercial deals, commercial fraud, corporate governance, outsourcing, procurement, reputation management (including libel and slander), shareholder disputes, IT and intellectual property disputes, partnership disputes, shareholder disputes, professional negligence and other diverse areas.

Developing a winning strategy

Developing litigation strategy is key to achieving our clients’ commercial aims. We vigorously pursue claims on behalf of our clients and take all steps to defend their position when claims are made against them. In commercially sensitive cases which require a lighter touch, we are adept at identifying strategies for achieving clients’ goals at an early stage, without resorting to formal litigation in the courts. We are keen proponents of Alternative Dispute Resolution and act in all main arbitration forums. Fundamentally, we are experienced and effective strategists and negotiators.
