The effective handling of disputes requires a carefully planned strategy, with due consideration of time, risks and costs.
We carry out a detailed review of the factual background before advising you strategically on litigation, mediation, arbitration and other dispute resolution options, with your objectives and risk appetite firmly in mind. We will explore the strengths and weaknesses of your case with you to identify any pressure points, where any issues may arise and how best to deal with them.
Our litigation team has a successful track record of bringing, defending and settling cases from start to successful resolution. With well-established relationships with specialist barristers, foreign lawyers and insolvency practitioners, we are well placed to assemble a team reflecting your specific industry, dispute and resources.
We frequently work alongside lawyers from other jurisdictions to enforce English and foreign judgments and arbitration awards around the world. Our lawyers work at speed to investigate sophisticated legal structures and obtain emergency relief to protect valuable assets which might otherwise be dissipated and stand in the way of successful recovery.
We have a very strong litigation team who are commercially astute and tactical in client issues while not encouraging claims which may be unsuccessful. We regularly appear in the High Court on commercial contract disputes, shareholder and corporate issues and other business problems.
We recently represented an international client in a multi-million dollar arbitration with a household name against a global American law firm and won.
We guide our client through all aspects of reputational management including slander and defamation
We represent individuals and businesses who may wish to challenge professionals and the advice they have received from them and understand the professional regulatory environment such professionals operate in as we respect our own regulatory governance.
We have worked with clients on investigations into their business conduct by regulatory bodies including the Financial Conduct Authority, ICO and professional regulatory bodies including the Law Society.
We are very strong in advising our clients, both UK and international, in relation to fraud and misrepresentation claims and cases and work with litigation funders extensively.
