We are specialists in commercial dispute resolution

We guide clients from the start of any dispute and assist them throughout the litigation or arbitration process, including alternative dispute resolution if appropriate. We are used to dealing with complex issues involving multiple areas of expertise. We work as a team with our clients and external advisers, including barristers and expert witnesses, to ensure that the client gets the most satisfactory outcome that can be achieved.


The Dispute Resolution Group draws on the experience of practitioners who have worked in substantial City practices and leading chambers, and who will quickly assess and advise on the best way forward with your problem.

Finding the right solution

Litigation or arbitration may not always be the right solution for your problem. Sometimes the issue may be resolved through negotiation; for others, it is best to consider another form of dispute resolution, such as mediation.


We are conscious that cost is a key consideration for the client. We will guide you through the initial stages of assessing the likely cost, and help to find funding in suitable cases.

The personal approach

We take great care to make sure our clients feel that their problems are being dealt with individually and given the care, attention and commitment that we would expect for ourselves.
