We take an innovative approach to helping clients proactively manage dispute risks. When litigation does arise, we provide confidence, certainty and creativity in reaching resolution.
Our Commercial Litigation team is one of the UK's most active commercial litigation practices. We have extensive experience in all aspects of commercial litigation and arbitration in England and Wales, across Europe and beyond. The team has acted for commercial organisations, state entities, regulatory bodies and quasi-state entities in cases before the High Court, the Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court and the ECJ as well as complex arbitrations in the ICC, LCIA and before other bodies.
Many current high value cases have an international element and most require us to seek advice on, and understand, foreign law and procedure, in jurisdictions as diverse as Ukraine and Russia, the US and various Middle East countries.
Our time in court means that we are able to advise from a position of experience, not guesswork, on how a court, or judge, may approach a particular issue.
