Disputes

Defending your commercial interests in a complex and contentious world.

Overview

Disputes are an unavoidable aspect of commercial life, meaning you need lawyers who will work with you to tackle those challenges head-on.

Clients benefit from our ability to identify the issues, understand the commercial implications, and to create a strategy that will minimise the impact on your business.

Our seasoned and highly ranked teams have years of experience in resolving disputes; they know when to negotiate and what tactics to deploy to get the upper hand and outmanoeuvre the opposition. They have the scale and resources, including state of the art technology and access to the best experts, to handle high value and complex litigation, where the stakes can be existential. Whether your business is a corporate, a financial institution, a professional services firm or you are a high net worth individual, we will be by your side to defend your interests and seek resolution.

Our experience tells us that the best outcomes are achieved when we work as part of your team, evaluating your options, planning for potential litigation or arbitration and dealing with emergency procedures. We are proud to be recognised as a "disputes powerhouse" and to be recognised in the legal press for the quality of our work.
