Litigation and dispute management

Even the most carefully managed commercial relationships face problems. Often they can be resolved; occasionally they turn into full-blown disputes. Increasingly, those disputes have an international dimension.

Our skill is in finding ways to resolve problem situations at an early stage wherever possible and, if not, fighting a client’s corner to a successful outcome.

Our litigation and dispute management team is one of the largest outside of the US. It comprises more than 650 litigation and dispute resolution experts worldwide with vast experience of handling high-value, complex, cross-border disputes and legal proceedings.

This is what makes us the first port of call for clients facing disputes of just about every type, sector and jurisdiction, including most of the world’s major financial institutions and global energy and infrastructure corporations.

In independent surveys, clients tell us they like our tried-and-tested approach to project management because it gives them control both of the process and of the costs; 96 per cent commended us for our commercial acumen and for truly understanding their business objectives.

Our lawyers handle all types of formal dispute resolution, including litigation, arbitration expert determination and mediation. Where possible, we seek practical, cost-effective solutions that do not tie up management or impede the normal conduct of business.
