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.
Facing a claim for professional negligence is a daunting and stressful experience for any organisation or individual. Alongside the potential for both financial and reputational damage, there is the potential for significant disruption to professional activities.
From smaller claims where cost efficiency is a priority to large-sale, complex, multi-million pound disputes, our market leading team has a long and successful history of defending professional services firms, individuals and insurers in all manner of disputes.
With teams of lawyers focused on each of the major professions (and increasingly on the 'emerging' professional occupations and organisations), the group understands the commercial, reputational and regulatory pressures faced by professional clients and provides focused risk management advice. This focus also allows the team to share information on emerging exposures, including issues such as mortgage fraud, aggressive tax schemes and Chinese reverse mergers, among others.
Our strategic approach means clients are always aware of all the options. In addition to litigating these matters, we also offer clients highly skilled negotiation, mediation and arbitration advice, which can be of vital importance, particularly for those clients concerned to protect reputations and manage risk.
