Our lawyers are aware that any litigated matter can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. However, we are in a position to assist by using both a legal and practical commercial approach in order to solve our client’s problems.

We understand that sometimes, the “legal” approach is not the only answer and that there are often pragmatic commercial steps that can be taken to solve a dispute. This can include an “off the record” chat with an opponent to try and resolve a dispute by negotiation, or the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) such as Arbitration or Mediation.

Our litigation team puts that client at the heart of everything they do. Ultimately, even the best legal solution may not be appropriate if it doesn’t work for the client “on the ground”.

We take a forward thinking and transparent approach to costs, letting you know in advance what you should expect to pay, and advising you on any other alternative forms of litigation funding that might be available to you.


The areas of work we cover include:-

  • Breach of Contract
  • Company & Shareholder Disputes
  • Professional Negligence
  • Defamation, Internet, Privacy & Harassment
  • Intellectual Property litigation
  • Property litigation – including Landlord & Tenants Disputes
  • Construction & Engineering Disputes
  • Insolvency litigation
  • Injunctions
  • Enforcement of Foreign Judgement in the UK
  • Tax & VAT disputes

Our personnel have been ranked as experts in their field by the UK Legal 500 and described as "exemplary, knowledgeable and compassionate".
