Dispute Resolution We help our clients to navigate through troubled waters

Disputes and litigation are risks that unfortunately your business faces daily. We work closely with our clients to minimise the impact of these risks on their businesses. If you have a claim, we want to maximise the realisations from that claim without exposing your company to further risk. If you have a claim made against you we want to reduce the claim and avoid the company being exposed to any further risk.

We are passionate that litigation should be a last resort. Achieving a commercial solution and, in particular, mediation, is a big part of our culture but if court action is appropriate then we will pursue this with your business aims and objectives in mind.

We begin every potential claim with a full Strategic Review. This involves an in-depth Cost, Risk, Benefit analysis of the claim, considering the strengths and weaknesses of the case in detail before we would proceed. Where appropriate, we will work closely with counsel and other professionals at this stage, so that we can give you the best insight as to the potential impacts on the business.

We are highly experienced in using alternative methods of dispute resolution, such as mediation, but when litigation is unavoidable, our role is to mitigate the impact on you. We will work tirelessly to ensure that the litigation is resolved as efficiently and as commercially as possible.

We focus on:

  • Managing risk
  • Giving you certainty over the cost and the business impact at each stage of your claim
  • Resolving the dispute as efficiently as possible
