How we can help

Project managing complex transactions

If disputes can’t be avoided, our formidable experience as litigators means that we’re in the perfect position to manage even the most complex and demanding of disputes. Our approach and our focus greatly increase your chances of a successful outcome.

Supporting you as a trusted adviser

We’re proud of the strength and enduring nature of the ‘trusted adviser’ relationships we’ve built with many leading UK and international corporates.

We help our clients to avoid disputes becoming litigious wherever we can. Right from the very start we‘ll work with you to develop a clear strategy, as well as identifying and analysing any risk.  Our role is to optimise any pressure points and find opportunities to resolve the dispute. We make decisions based on the outcome you need and we don’t lose sight of cost.  We’re mindful of early dispute resolution and we’re fortunate to have accredited mediators in our team.
