Knowing you have one of the best dispute resolution teams in the UK working with you brings peace of mind. General Counsel ranked us as 14th for top level litigation (Sharplegal UK 2014 Report).

With 255 specialists including 42 partners – most of whom are recognised as leaders in their field - we’re one of the largest dispute resolution teams in the industry. What sets us apart is our commitment to providing the very best client experience, at every stage.

With clients ranging from FTSE organisations through to some of the best known brands on the high street, we offer a breadth of experience and expertise, and a depth of resource, meaning we can deliver the results you’re looking for on even the largest of disputes.

We’re proud of our commitment to building long term client relationships. We want you to have the right people for the job by your side. That’s why we make sure that every piece of advice is clear, direct and adds real value, whether you’re looking for help with day-to-day contractual issues, litigation, mediation or international arbitration.

Everything we do is focussed on achieving your objectives. We understand that disputes are disruptive, whatever their nature. That’s why we start by reviewing the risks as well as setting out clear strategies for their management. Resolving potential disputes before they arise is always best but we don’t shy away from pursuing or defending litigation or arbitration, if needed. At each stage we deliver cost-effective, actionable solutions. 

"The litigation team delivered what we wanted, when we wanted it and for a reasonable fee, and over-delivered on the outcome."

"They were very friendly, giving clear and succinct advice."

"They were very supportive and treated you as an individual, not as a client. I could ask lots of questions, and everything was answered clearly in laymen's terms."

"The firm and its individuals always go above and beyond to deliver a world-class service which you feel is tailored to meet your business needs. They ensure there is constant contact so that response times are always excellent."

"Their communication skills are excellent and they are very responsive."
