Litigation and arbitration

We can support you in avoiding disputes but, when litigation is unavoidable, our market-leading litigation and dispute resolution team can help you achieve a positive resolution. 

Whatever the issue, our aim is to help achieve the best solution for you, in a commercial and cost-effective way. We take the time to get to know the situation and what success looks like for you, before developing the right strategy to achieve your goals. Key to our approach is to consider the benefits of negotiated settlement before jumping to litigation. 

Our dispute resolution team is one of the biggest and most experienced in the UK, regularly working on High Court and other significant cases. We deal with disputes in all forums, including courts, international arbitration and adjudication.
