Litigation & Complex Disputes

We are expertly credentialed to protect and enforce your rights, pursue damages or compensation on your behalf, or defend you and your assets from attack.

Our method is defined by incisive legal and factual analysis, forensic decision-making, and complete and cohesive strategy and implementation. Our approach in dealing with your legal problems will be underpinned by a practical and commercial appreciation of your risks and objectives.  We have qualifications and experience in financial analysis and valuation, risk management and forensic investigation.  Irrespective of the size or complexity of the claim, we develop a clear and cohesive case theory and strategy at the outset, ensure you understand it and implement the strategy to achieve the best outcome for you. 

We pride ourselves on being different in the litigation landscape, by developing and implementing complete strategies from the start of our engagement while maintaining the flexibility to respond to the vagaries of litigation and disputes.  We don’t over promise at the first meeting, under prepare subsequently, and then under deliver.  If you shouldn’t litigate, we will tell you that.  If there is a better alternative, we’ll identify and execute it.

Our team members have been involved in and led some of the most significant commercial, insolvency, funds management and investment related litigation of the last ten years.  We have acted for a variety of parties in these actions, and advised other parties in relation to the implications of this litigation for them, intervening in proceedings as required.

Our strength is in our flexibility and agility, not only in relation to our work but also to pricing for our litigation and dispute related services.  We give our clients certainty, confidence, and flexibility by offering them a variety of billing alternatives, including time billing, fixed price litigation, capped and stage-capped pricing, value pricing and risk-based pricing. We discuss costs and pricing upfront, and tailor our service to your requirements.  We also have key relationships with a number of litigation funders who can provide flexibility to our clients.
