Our substantial commercial litigation and ADR practice advises clients across the globe.
The group has an unrivalled reputation for working in emerging markets and continues to expand alongside our global networks; ensuring clients have access to first-rate contentious advice wherever they operate.
Our Commercial Litigation and ADR group has three key elements: proven disputes expertise, deep sector understanding and global capability. Recognised as 'pre-eminent' and 'elite' by the directories, we take a practical, commercially-minded approach to resolving disputes across the full range of sectors. Our global network of offices enables us to offer experience across a wide spectrum of jurisdictions, meaning we can assist clients wherever they do business.
The group incorporates practices with specific contentious focus, including banking and financial services, class actions, energy and natural resources, corporate and M&A, and many more.
Our global group is adept at managing cross-border and big-ticket litigation, where the stakes are high and are often business critical. We understand the different ways a dispute can be resolved, and are flexible enough to respond to the idiosyncrasies of each dispute and our client's needs as they develop. As a result of our close sector alignment, resolving disputes is in our DNA, and we stand out as one of the leading global practices in the market.
Our 'flourishing' Banking and Finance litigation practice is distinct in the City, being rarely conflicted from acting for or against many of the major global banking institutions.
This well-established group gained its leading reputation long before the global financial crisis of 2008 and has consistently maintained its reputation since. We offer clients a 'standout' level of care which encompasses the need for discretion as well as getting results.
The team represents major banks and financial institutions, corporates and individuals in complex banking litigations, including significant cross-border cases, no matter where our clients are based. The practice has particular experience in derivatives cases, including those involving ISDA documentation. It is also involved in an increasing number of cases concerning LIBOR and other interest rate swap issues.
