Dibb Lupton Alsop has formed a communications and technology litigation group - which it claims is the largest of its kind.
It will handle all aspects of dispute resolution and litigation in the IT and communications sectors.
Comprised of eight partners and 16 lawyers, it will be spread throughout the firm's national offices.
Although the group has operated informally for the past three years, Dibbs says that it has formalised the group because of the growth of the area.
New head of the communications and technology litigation group Julian Stait says: "This is a very important move in the industry. Although a handful of firms may profess to have litigation experience in the IT and communications sectors, we are the only firm to have a truly dedicated national team of contentious communications and technology lawyers."
However, a partner at a specialist IT and telecommunications firm disputed that the Dibbs move was unique, saying that similar teams existed in other firms but were contained within other departments.
Dibbs communications industry clients include Cable & Wireless, COLT, and Sanderson Group.
