Our team has a deep understanding of the commercial reputation and regulatory issues facing legal professionals.

We are experienced in navigating high profile and reputationally sensitive claims. We work closely from the outset with risk and management teams and communications specialists to preserve confidentiality and to minimise the fall-out that can arise from disputes.

Our experience is global in scope and we assist firms and their insurers with their cross-border operations and issues. We have worked across multiple jurisdictions, including those where we are not based, and maintain a strong reputation for achieving positive results for clients.

The size of our practice means we are also able to provide volume claims support, locally and internationally.
