Our Dispute Resolution Practice has an impressive track record for successfully representing clients before courts and regulatory authorities. We also have a reputation for tackling complex legal issues and winning difficult cases. We have wide ranging experience and expertise across our key industry sectors and are skilled in all forms of dispute resolution including, litigation; arbitration; ADR; corporate governance advice and investigations.
Our Firm provides a business-orientated service tailored to meet our clients’ varying business objectives. We provide clients with creative and result-oriented litigation and arbitration counsel in matters ranging from major commercial disputes to sensitive internal, regulatory or criminal investigations. In particular, we are experienced in handling the complex procedural and substantive issues that may arise when our clients become involved in civil, commercial and criminal litigation, corporate investigations and international arbitrations.
With a strong record of success, we have the insight to plan and execute a winning strategy from the outset of a case. Our litigation team has the talent, knowledge and experience required to help businesses and individuals identify and manage potential risks, respond to existing or threatened litigation and pursue resolution in every available venue. Our litigators counsel clients on the best course of action to achieve their legal and business goals. We choose strategies that will help our clients obtain their desired results in an efficient, timely and cost-effective manner.
We also offer general contract and risk management advice as well as strategic advice on the best forum in which to seek to resolve your dispute. In addition, our litigators act as counsel and arbitrator in international arbitrations under all of the major international arbitration rules.
We handle litigation and arbitration involving a wide variety of issues, such as M&A, antitrust, product liability, insurance, bankruptcy, white-collar crime, employment, executive compensation, intellectual property, and general commercial disputes. We provide specialist advice across a range of areas including telecommunications; energy; media; construction; fraud and investigations; public law; professional negligence; health and safety; partnership disputes; and administrative law. We have represented financial service companies, insurance companies, retailers, manufacturers, energy companies, telecoms operators and internet service providers, tv-operators and media companies, recording companies as well as several other clients in other industries.
Our Firm is particularly strong in product liability litigation, having handled a wide variety of cases involving many types of industrial machinery and equipment, numerous commercial and consumer products, medical devices, and pharmaceuticals. At the same time we recognize that not all disputes need to lead to litigation or arbitration proceedings. To reduce litigation risk, we develop compliance programs and provide training; we advise on pre litigation strategy and ensure that as a dispute progresses, a strategic perspective is always maintained. We are, therefore, increasingly providing advice on pre-litigation matters and working alongside our non-contentious teams as risk managers. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is an integral part of our practice and an area where we have considerable expertise.
Our approach is to be flexible, pragmatic and transparent in order to satisfy our clients’ expectations on costs and timing as well as quality of advice. At the end of the day, a law firm is only as good as the results it obtains for its clients. The key to litigation success is to have the flexibility to reach advantageous settlements, where appropriate, and to have the experience and talent to take cases to trial, if necessary, and win.
