Dispute Resolution

Disputes, when they arise, are an unwanted and often distressing distraction for a business or individual. We help clients to resolve all kinds of commercial disputes in as effective and cost-efficient a way as possible.

We work with clients to seek to achieve their objectives through early commercial and sensible resolution of disputes wherever possible. However, where court or arbitration proceedings are the best method for achieving the client’s objectives, or where they are unavoidable, we employ our extensive experience of fighting such disputes at all levels of the court system in England and Wales, as well as in institutional and ad hoc arbitration.

We deal with complex and high value disputes, many with an international/offshore element, including multi-jurisdictional and cross-border issues which can involve urgent court and tribunal applications worldwide.

Our clients include entrepreneurs, high net worth individuals, financial services companies, technology companies, retailers, professional services companies, investors, mining companies, restauranteurs, venture capital and private equity investment houses, hoteliers, film and television companies and many others.

Our expertise as well as our wealth of trial and other court/tribunal experience in complex and high value disputes has led to our practice being ranked by the Legal 500 as one of the leading practices in London for commercial litigation.

We also work closely with experts from other practice areas in the firm when appropriate.
