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.
We understand the potential financial and reputational implications of fraud-related proceedings for businesses, and act for claimants and defendants across the breadth of the firm's sector practices.
The global financial crisis has brought an increased focus on the duties and accountabilities of individuals and organisations, particularly in relation to financial responsibilities. Huge fines and penalties; and launches of new regulatory bodies have become common place. Together with increased responsibilities brought about by legislation such as the Bribery Act and similar legislation in other jurisdictions. This has resulted in increased scrutiny of potential fraudulent behaviours no matter where the jurisdiction.
Our vastly experienced claims validation and asset recovery practice covers jurisdictions across the breadth of the firm's global network and extends across all the firm's sector practice areas, particularly in our key sectors of insurance and reinsurance, energy, infrastructure, aviation and aerospace and trade and commodities.
The team has particular experience in financial crime, including fraud, bribery, money laundering, cartel activity and breach of sanctions. The Clyde & Co team have represented defendants in some of the largest fraud claims of recent years, including the TadAZ litigation and BTA v Ablyazov.
