Whilst the litigation’s teams focus is in London our lawyers have litigated for clients in many jurisdictions round the World and in many tribunals, including arbitrations in the all the major international institutions.
Some disputes may require very urgent relief in order to forestall further breaches of contract, the disposal of assets or the destruction of evidence. This is particularly true when allegations of fraud arise. Our civil fraud practice is well noted in the legal guides. We have the capacity and experience to ensure that clients secure early protection against fraud and its effect.
Whilst the background to our work is litigation our aim is to resolve disputes and crises for clients in the most effective manner. This often involves mediation and other alternative methods, such as arbitration. We have long experience in the mediation process, both as mediators and representative of parties. Similarly our lawyers include both arbitrators and those very experienced in the arbitration process.
