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 dedicated employment team handles the full range of employee disputes, including Tribunal and High Court proceedings, as well as negotiating resolutions to disputes not going to formal proceedings.
Employment disputes call for a deft touch. We can draw on our longstanding experience to offer tailored advice to every client. Perhaps more than any other type of disputes, employment disputes often contain 'grey' areas and it is here that our practical approach comes into its own.
Working to resolve a case in an amicable manner early in the proceedings can often be the most cost-effective approach and we pride ourselves on the fact that many of our cases never reach formal proceedings. Despite this, the team is particularly adept at managing large and complex disputes and is able to call upon the firm's considerable litigation capability if required to support cases.
The group handles all employment litigation from unfair dismissal claims to reputational, whistleblowing and discrimination claims. We have particular experience in business critical team moves and business protection disputes and also deal with restrictive covenant injunctions and other High Court applications.
