Dispute Resolution

Commercial Litigation

Marriott Harrison LLP’s litigation practice has acted in many important cases at all levels of the court system in England and Wales.  The practice covers most commercial areas including corporate, commercial, commercial agency, employment, financial services, insolvency, insurance, information technology, media and intellectual property, domain name and other internet issues, property, and international trade.

Injunctions

Emergency court applications usually involve an application for an injunction (a Court Order requiring someone to do something or (more often) not to do something). Frequently an injunction has to be applied for with great urgency, for example to freeze transfers of assets, to prevent the use of confidential information or to require the return of property. Often, such applications are co-ordinated with applications in overseas’ jurisdictions.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property embraces a wide range of valuable, intangible, assets which enable those who are (for example) designers, authors, computer code writers, inventors, film producers and so on to protect the fruits of their labour so that third parties cannot simply use what they have produced and exploit it for their own benefit.

International and Domestic Arbitration

From its inception, Marriott Harrison LLP has undertaken major international and domestic arbitrations and the team includes a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.   Most recently Marriott Harrison LLP’s arbitration practice has included a multi-million pound ad hoc arbitration between Indian and Spanish pharmaceutical enterprises, an UNCITRAL arbitration between an independent financial adviser and its client and an ICC arbitration between an Italian steel producer and an Indian supplier of raw materials.

Mediation

Mediation was embraced by Marriott Harrison LLP long before it became an almost universally used dispute resolution mechanism tool. The Firm’s first recorded mediation was in 1990 in a substantial white collar fraud case. Most commercial disputes lend themselves to mediation which is quick, relatively inexpensive and usually effective.
