We are one of the most successful and largest Litigation & Dispute Resolution Teams outside London offering specialists experienced in disputes and litigation in areas which include banking, commercial contracts, construction, corporate and partnership, engineering, fraud and asset recovery, IT and telecoms, judicial review, pensions, product recall, professional negligence, real estate and regulatory. Our primary objective is to help our clients to avoid disputes becoming litigious wherever possible. At the outset we work with our clients to develop a clear strategy for managing any dispute in a way which identifies and analyses the risks, optimises the pressure points and seeks out the opportunities for resolution, all with the goal of cost effectively meeting the desired commercial outcome. We are always mindful of early dispute resolution and benefit from having in the Team mediators trained by the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR).
Where a dispute cannot be avoided, our formidable experience as litigators means that we are well placed to manage the most complex and demanding of disputes. Our approach and focus increases the prospect of a highly successful outcome, whether in litigation, arbitration or some other form of alternative dispute resolution.
All the litigation partners have substantial trial experience and the Team can boast numerous successes in the High Court, as well as the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.
Due to the nature of the disputes in which we are involved the Team is available 24/7 to provide strategic advice and support to clients whenever required.
