International Disputes

Our international dispute resolution team act for clients based outside of the UK in relation to UK based litigation and arbitration, and for UK based clients involved in disputes abroad. 

We are able to secure prompt and reliable advice for our clients in most foreign jurisdictions whenever it is needed, be that through our membership of the Legal Netlink Alliance or our tight network of international partner firms.

The dispute resolution team are also unencumbered by major conflicts and we are able to promote our clients’ objectives via the most direct and cost effective means. 


Litigation is normally unwelcome, but it is 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.
