For you and your family

Dispute Resolution

Our Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department aims to assist you to avoid a dispute if possible and, where it is not, to represent your interests and ensure that your family or business needs are protected. Our lawyers will advise you and help you to achieve the best resolution of your dispute, whether by litigation, mediation or another form of dispute resolution or negotiation.

We aim to assess and deliver your specific client goals or needs and to do that as commercially and economically as possible whilst explaining to you the risks and likely outcome of your dispute.

We have extensive experience in all aspects of commercial litigation, property litigation, Insolvency, and employment matters and have conducted cases in all civil courts, the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal, Employment Tribunal and in mediations and arbitrations. Our client base ranges from private individuals to large corporations and offshore companies.

We are also able to provide advice and assistance in relation to drafting of documents including Employment Contracts, Shareholders Agreements, Service Contracts, Terms of Business and Asset Purchase Agreements.

We pride ourselves in providing open access to law and have conducted some high profile cases for publicly funded clients or those on very limited means in suitable cases against large financial or other major institutions.
