Commercial disputes

Whether your company is big or small, we will provide you with expert advice on complex disputes, from lawyers who have earned their stripes with some of the largest firms in the world.

Unlike some law firms, we don’t turn down clients because they are “too small” and we are committed to resolving our clients’ disputes, no matter now complex they are. Our specialist team has the ability to handle multi-jurisdictional, high value disputes on your behalf.

Small to medium enterprises can rest assured they getting the same high standard of service that larger companies take for granted. Blue chip clients will enjoy our way of working too – as we offer a “big firm” approach to litigation, without the usual inflated costs.

Our approach to Complex Disputes –

  • Analytical: we don’t make assumptions, we base our strategies on facts and legal analysis
  • Considered and well presented: clear communications throughout the process
  • Results-oriented: our strategic advice is always based on achieving the best possible outcome
  • Cost-effective: we always persevere for a negotiated outcome to minimise costs for the client and we are experts in negotiation and ADR.
  • Expert Advice: We advise financial institutions, debt purchasers and corporates in respect of debt collection, fraud and asset recovery, insolvency, satisfactory quality and title disputes, secured and unsecured recoveries, guarantees, fixed and floating charges and injunctions

We have a strong track record in handling complex disputes
