We are famous for handling commercial disputes. We are at home with smaller commercial cases and have an unbroken history of handling the very biggest cases.

"Dispute resolution is at the very heart of this firm, with most of its lawyers handling contentious matters." Chambers & Partners

We work quickly to master the full commercial and legal context of your position, weigh the merits of contending interests and help you to understand both the strong and weak points at play. Your commercial objectives will govern us as we work out the most appropriate and cost-effective strategy for you. We will balance the sensitivities of the case against forceful action wherever required: this may involve negotiation, litigation, mediation or arbitration. We also know that the cost of litigation and arbitration is an issue and we try hard to approach costs in a sensible and collaborative manner.

The cases we take on range from a relatively simple contractual dispute to some of the biggest and most complex cases against the largest companies and institutions in the world. We can advise on your chances of success and guide you through settlement or mediation. At the other end of the scale we can conduct full-blown cross-border arbitration or litigation depending on what is best for you.

We have particular expertise in bringing and defending various kinds of injunctions and conducting forensic investigations. Attacking or defending monies or businesses held in trust structures is a speciality.

As a global centre for dispute resolution, we conduct a lot of this work in London, however every office from Paris to Beijing includes litigation and arbitration specialists. In Singapore, members of Incisive Law LLC, with which we have a Formal Law Alliance, provide Singapore law advice and represent clients in both domestic and international arbitrations. We are also often called on to manage litigation in countries where we are not present, when we work in collaboration with our clients’ local lawyers.

Our international case management is second to none. When necessary we can marshal our network of offices, overseas law firms, expert witnesses and counsel to maximum effect, analysing, huge volumes of documents in multiple languages, all the while communicating with you to reinforce the strength of your position and manage the time and cost profile.

“Excellent client service: they’re extremely efficient and they’re available to assist and advise us at any time.”
