We provide constructive solutions to our clients’ disputes by giving practical, intelligent and tailored advice.
Alternative dispute resolution
We recognise our responsibility to promote our clients’ objectives via the most direct and cost effective means. This may often require the use of alternative dispute resolution – negotiation, arbitration, mediation or other structured dispute resolution mechanisms.
Litigious disputes are unwelcome, but they are sometimes unavoidable. Our approach, where possible, is that it is better to resolve disputes by constructive negotiation. Nevertheless where this is simply not achievable we are resolute and tenacious. In other words, we will fight your corner in what often can be difficult and challenging circumstances. On these occasions we ensure that our clients are fully aware not only of the prospective benefits but also of the potential risks and likely costs of going to court (or arbitration).
Our resources in terms of experienced personnel, wide-ranging legal expertise, and supporting technology enable us to deliver a cost-effective service which is both responsive and sympathetic to our clients’ needs. We always strive to deliver best value to clients as part of our overall service.
Our dispute resolution team is experienced in an extensive range of contentious cases. These include property and construction disputes, disagreements over contracts, professional negligence claims, insurance, judicial review, intellectual property, partnership and shareholder “fall-outs”, insolvency, banking/finance litigation and media related disputes. We regularly represent our clients across a wide spectrum of courts and tribunals.
Our experience encompasses domestic litigation and arbitration as well as acting for UK based clients involved in disputes abroad and for international clients with disputes within the UK. As a founding member of Legal Netlink Alliance (“LNA”) we maintain strong connections with law firms across the world. As a consequence we are able to secure prompt and reliable advice for our clients in most foreign jurisdictions whenever it is needed.
