With over 30 specialist lawyers in our dispute resolution group, we advise on a wide spectrum of contentious matters. Our clients range from listed and national companies through to local owner-managed businesses and high net-worth individuals. The disputes we handle encompass a variety of sectors including banking, financial services, media and charities. We undertake a significant amount of international work and have particular expertise dealing with claims with a multi-jurisdictional element.
We help clients to avoid formal proceedings where possible and regularly assist with pre-action settlements, mediations and other alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, working alongside our clients to achieve the best commercial outcome. The process of identifying and assessing the possible solutions can often be as complex as the dispute itself and each case will require its own bespoke and cost effective approach. In some cases, court action is unavoidable and we have a strong track record in dealing with all aspects of the litigation process from commencement through to trial (and, where appropriate, appeal). We also advise on ombudsman complaints, regulatory investigations, Data Protection Act breaches, complaints, and both ad-hoc and institutional arbitrations.
