A misconceived approach to a dispute or potential dispute can often make things worse.  A strategic grasp is required of what can be achieved, and this grasp must be properly informed by a thorough understanding of all the relevant commercial, technological, industry-specific, and legal factors.

Our team can cover a wide range of industries. We can bring or defend claims for damages, tortious claims, protect your copyright, and help to resolve complex outsourcing disputes. We also have particular experience in defending libel actions and protecting scientific discussion. Whatever the nature of your actual or potential dispute, we will be able to protect and promote your interests.

In procedural terms, our team has a range of experience which includes acting in cases before the Court of Appeal, the High Court, County Courts, Magistrates’ Courts, and even a Coroner’s Court, as well as arbitration and mediation. Our team has a particular experience dealing with LCIA and ICC arbitration as well as niche arbitration institutions such as LME.

Our clients include cabinet ministers, airlines, large corporations and leading telecom providers as well as start-ups and smaller businesses. Moreover, our team has been listed as “one to watch” by Legal 500.

Please contact us if you have any questions about an actual or potential dispute.
