For disputes involving general commercial litigation and dispute resolution, for example interpretation of contract terms, termination rights, performance issues, we refer you to our Commercial Litigation team.
We focus on helping our clients to avoid disputes becoming litigious wherever possible. From 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 accredited mediators in the Team.
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 dispute resolution 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. In addition, we have extensive experience of using ADR procedures such as mediation to obtain commercial settlements for our clients.
With an increasingly global client base, our international arbitration practice is growing rapidly. Members of our team are also Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
