Our team employs various methods of dispute resolution, from litigation to mediation and arbitration. Coupled with deep sector and industry expertise, we apply meaningful understanding to gain desired outcomes. 

We offer straightforward advice to clients who are often faced with complicated disputes. Our team is expert in dealing with disputes arising from a wide range of contexts, knowing when to be conciliatory and when to contest. 

Disputes can vary in significance from business critical to important but peripheral. That is why we consider all the available options and, where possible, avoid litigation by employing other approaches. When litigation is the necessary and appropriate route, we are relentless and tenacious in the protection of our clients’ interests and in pursuit of the best possible outcomes.

Our first concerns are your commercial objectives and we will assess what is best for your business – the legal, financial, and reputational risks to you, and the strengths and weaknesses of your opponents’ position. This assessment enables us to focus on developing the best approach for you and your business, either through the most effective procedural tactics or creative settlement options.

No matter the issue, our robust approach is characterised by a focus on tested pre-emptive strategies, seeking to press or negate claims before they escalate, first-class case management, and the identification of the best settlement options for our clients.

Our media and reputation team is available to manage any matters that may attract unwanted attention, seeking to ensure that private matters are kept private.

We will seek to offer you specialist expertise at a price you can afford. We will always ensure you are kept in the loop through each stage and that we keep our fees in line with your expectations.
