David Cook

David is a Director in our Commercial Dispute Resolution Team and specialises in high value, complex commercial disputes and risk management issues, including:  IT; pensions and trusts; corporate; and general commercial disputes, often with an international aspect.  He has particular expertise in software licensing disputes and has acted in some of the most high profile pension disputes of recent years.

David has an excellent track record in the successful settlement of disputes via alternative dispute resolution, and has extensive experience of litigating in both the High Court and Court of Appeal.

David has considerable experience in using legal technology to deliver costs savings to clients and also in working with clients to find innovative solutions to financing litigation.

Prior to joining Walker Morris in 2019, David worked for over 13 years at two major international law firms.  Clients have commented upon the “superb quality of work” produced by David, his “hard work” and “persistence”, and the “fabulous” results obtained.

In their words

"I work hard to get to know my clients and understand their commercial objectives, as well as the facts of the case. From the outset I aim to develop a focussed and cost effective strategy for resolving the dispute, I then work closely with the client throughout and seek to utilise the strength and depth of expertise within Walker Morris to maximum advantage. My ultimate goal is to help clients meet and exceed their objectives by achieving the best possible results; from preserving longstanding business relationships via commercial settlement to winning at trial."
