Overview

Our dispute resolution team deals with a broad cross-section of cases from major cross-border disputes that threaten the existence of a company and judicial review work to advising on the choice of dispute resolution clauses in contracts and mediating to resolve long-running, intractable cases.

We take care to understand the client’s objectives before devising and implementing an effective strategy tailored to their needs. When the interests of a client are best served by pursuing litigation vigorously, we consistently achieve good results but we also have a strong record of success in the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques such as mediation.

In the field of professional practices we have an excellent reputation for our work in advising on the full range of general partnership and LLP matters, including incorporation, restructuring, partner departures and insolvency.

Our clients range from multi-national corporations, regulatory bodies and trade associations to banks and other financial institutions, educational establishments and companies involved in group actions. We are increasingly working with international law firms, accountancy firms and corporates to provide clients with global solutions across multiple jurisdictions – particularly in India, the US, Europe and the Caribbean.
