"Man explaining something with hands.

Conflicts in business are inevitable. If not handled correctly they can quickly intensify into a major dispute. This diverts management and can have a negative impact on your balance sheet and brand. 

Our team's experience covers all forms of commercial dispute resolution including litigation (both domestic and overseas), appellant work, arbitration, and mediation. We act for businesses that range from owner-manager to multi-national entities with disputes across multiple jurisdictions. We work across a wide range of sectors from energy to financial services and will propose and deploy a bespoke strategy based on your commercial objectives and budget. 

We regularly deal with high-profile and complex disputes meaning that we act quickly, assertively, and effectively for clients, providing creative solutions to challenging problems. Caught sufficiently early, our advice often avoids litigation altogether. We support your business in reducing the potential for disputes, or place you in a stronger position if things go wrong.

Often delivering a successful outcome involves a multi-disciplinary approach, using a wider group of experts. We have an established network of other trusted and tested service providers, including counsel, accountants, data analysts, investigators, and foreign legal teams. Experts from other teams in the firm, including brand management, are also on hand to support you.

We cover all aspects of commercial litigation including contractual disputes, negligence claims, misrepresentation, and shareholder and partnership disputes. We regularly act for clients in warranty claims, regulatory disputes, directors duties, and product liability disputes. If you need us to, we can get freezing injunctions and search orders put into place. We can also advise on the enforcement of foreign judgments.

The cost of litigation is often unpredictable. A cost-benefit analysis underpins all our advice. We also offer tailored funding solutions appropriate to the dispute. In litigation we will produce budgets, cash-flow forecasts, and risk/ reward modelling. This helps you make an informed decision at each key stage of the process.
