We are a leading commercial disputes and regulation practice of some 40 lawyers working across the UK. Led by seven partners, Chambers remark that we ‘excel in finding creative answers to thorny problems’ in high value, complex and significant cases, across both public and private sectors. Through our considered advice, we also look to prevent disputes from arising in the first place.

Our clients appreciate our frank approach, as we look to assess their risk – both financially and in terms of business reputation – and find solutions that will work. We are experienced advocates and our lawyers appear throughout the court and tribunal system in the UK, including arbitrations. Our mediation expertise is second to none, be it in negligence claims or highly complex technical commercial disputes.

All our lawyers are adept at managing the costs of disputes, so that our clients always have all the information they need to assess this crucial, but regularly overlooked, aspect of disputes. We are specialists in securing third party funding for our clients; indeed, our expertise in this regard is so respected that Burford Capital, the world’s largest funder, has provided us with a portfolio facility. Find out more at our Funded Disputes page.

We are experts in all forms of international arbitration, including both commercial arbitration and arbitration between investors and states under bilateral and multilateral investment treaties, on the basis of both institutional and ad hoc arbitration rules. Find out more at our International Arbitration Page.

We can help in all aspects of commercial dispute resolution. For more information please get in touch.
