The team’s expertise

We handle a wide range of substantial and complex commercial disputes and proceedings. We have particular expertise in dealing with:

  • real estate disputes

  • technology disputes.

Outside these fields we also deal with planning, banking and trust disputes, insolvency proceedings, partnership disputes, professional negligence claims and employment disputes.

Cost benefit

As part of any dispute resolution strategy, it is important to undertake an initial cost/benefit analysis. We work with clients to understand whether the potential costs and risks associated with their dispute outweigh the likely benefit of pursuing it.

Throughout any dispute we review progress with our clients against the intial cost/benefit analysis so that the right balance between costs and outcome is maintained.

We agree the scope of our work with clients and provide them with a cost for each key stage. Where possible we will agree fixed or capped fees.
