We know that our clients usually view litigation as a last resort. Our aim is to achieve commercial solutions to your disputes by giving effective and practical advice. We believe that our responsibility is to achieve our clients’ objectives by the most cost-effective and least time-consuming route available.
That may require the use of alternative remedies — negotiation, arbitration or structured dispute resolution. It may require the use of the courts; if so, we strive to ensure that our clients are fully appraised of the potential risks and the potential cost.
If litigation is the chosen course then we will seek to maintain the optimum balance between the need to achieve success and the cost that will have to be met.
Our resources in terms of personnel, information technology and expertise enables us to respond as speedily as is required. We work closely with our clients to ensure that we can provide a service that is both responsive and sympathetic to their requirements.
- Our dispute resolution team is experienced in a wide range of commercial disputes, including property and construction litigation, contractual disputes, professional negligence, insurance, judicial review, intellectual property, partnership and shareholder disputes, defamation, insolvency and contentious employment law. We also deal with contentious issues for high-net-worth individuals.
- We work closely with our clients so that they can make informed decisions about their case. We provide a realistic assessment of the merits and risks of litigation supported by regular cost estimates at key stages to assess whether the costs justify the likely outcome.
- We act for a variety of clients across a broad range of business sectors ranging from listed companies to private individuals. All our clients share our commitment to service and results.
