  • Overview

    Our focus is to deliver a fast, cost effective solution that minimises risk and disruption, whilst delivering the best possible commercial result.

    We realise that effective dispute resolution means we need to work with our clients to do more than advise on the law. We are astute, pragmatic and imaginative in providing outcomes which are most suited to our clients’ commercial objectives, using the most appropriate forum.

    The team has expertise in dealing with disputes which are the subject of litigation both in England and Wales and, working with local lawyers, overseas.

    We have an established and comprehensive network of law firms, experts and contacts across the globe allowing us to respond quickly to whatever issues you might have in any jurisdiction, ensuring that your interests are fully protected.

    • Domestic and international contract disputes, including claims for breach of contract, and disputes relating to the variation or interpretation of contracts
    • International trade and commodity disputes
    • The sale and supply of goods, including industrial plant and machinery
