Commercial Dispute Resolution

Our commercial dispute resolution lawyers provide constructive solutions to our clients’ disputes by giving practical, intelligent and tailored advice.

We take a strategic approach to resolving our clients' legal disputes

Litigation is unwelcome, but it is sometimes unavoidable. Our approach, where possible, is that it is better to resolve legal disputes by constructive negotiation (including through the use of mediation and other alternative dispute resolution methods).  Nevertheless where this is simply not achievable we are resolute and tenacious when involved in commercial litigation.  

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 dispute resolution lawyers are based in the City of London and as such we are well connected to the legal ecosystem and we have close access to the courts of London.

A cost effective and responsive approach

Our highly experienced dispute resolution partners, 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.

Delivering best value to our clients is an integral element of our dispute resolution service. 

We specialise in partner led legal advice so that you benefit from the many years of experience of the most senior members of our team. The team are supported by a talented group of Associates. Our over-arching principle is to provide advice at the right level for the value and importance of the claim, we are acutely aware that our goal is to place our clients in the best possible commercial position and our advice and our approach to case management transparency reflects that. Our clients are made aware of the stages of their claim and we will clearly set out options so that the right course is chosen for the particular set of circumstance.
