Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Lead Partner

Disputes are an inevitable part of business life. Often public and always distracting, disputes can crop up from every front.

Whatever the nature of your business, mitigating risks and resolving any challenges are integral to success.

Our dispute resolution experts have an enviable track record of pre-empting the contentious issues that could surface in a commercial relationship, taking steps to minimise them and reacting quickly and effectively when disputes do arise. This allows us to be an industry-leading litigation and dispute resolution firm.

We handle all types of commercial litigation for claimants and defendants, with a solution-focused approach built around you and your needs. We look at the commercial drivers relevant to you and the commercial imperatives for resolution, then work with you to determine the right line of attack.

Sometimes an informal and subtle approach is needed, and alternative dispute resolution is an integral tool in our kit for managing conflicts through settlement negotiations and mediation. As a resilient, confident and dynamic team of litigators, we also know when it’s in your best interests to hit hard.
