We act for individuals, companies, firms, charities, regulatory bodies and other institutions.
We regularly act for and advise clients and other lawyers who are based outside the UK and deal with matters involving international and cross-border issues.
Our approach to resolving disputes is business sensitive: we look for innovative ways to solve clients’ problems speedily and, wherever possible, in a way that preserves the relationship between the parties.
We firmly believe in using alternative dispute resolution procedures whenever appropriate and will use litigation and arbitration only as a necessary tool of last resort.
Our clients' interests are rarely best served by their becoming embroiled in often lengthy and costly dispute procedures, and we aim, whenever possible, to resolve matters as quickly and cost-effectively as possible through negotiation or other forms of dispute resolution. We are experienced in acting in arbitrations, adjudications in construction disputes, and in other forms of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation. Two of our partners are accredited CEDR (Centre for Dispute Resolution) mediators.
Nevertheless, if matters cannot at first be concluded outside of formal proceedings our well-regarded team is experienced in dealing with all forms of litigation in the High Court and County Courts.
Our experienced litigation lawyers provide practical and cost-effective legal advice and court representation in a broad range of disputes, from complex fraud litigation in the High Court to debt collection in the County Court.
We can provide you with a complete service for all your litigation requirements – urgent asset freezing orders, search orders or other injunctions, or contractual or tortious claims.
