Whether your business is facing a conflict, a financial mis-selling claim, a shareholder dispute, a partnership dispute, a professional negligence claim, or perhaps a claim for defamation, our commercial litigation team can assist.Sectors and Services
We work closely with colleagues across the firm when required, to ensure that you receive a clear direction on how to proceed. As well as our extensive litigation experience, we also advise on alternative forms of dispute resolution (ADR) such as arbitration and mediation. In many cases it can be a more cost effective approach to your dispute and is particularly advantageous where confidentiality or preserving business relations are key considerations.
In today’s business environment, commercial disputes are often multi-jurisdictional and we are experienced at dealing with disputes with an international element. Where necessary we can call upon our strong network of international legal contacts to guarantee you the best overseas representation. We work closely with our international partner firms to ensure that the output is well co-ordinated and that you have a single point of contact.
We regularly work with or on behalf of our clients’ insurers. We aim to be flexible on our fee arrangements and are willing in certain cases to offer a ‘no win no fee’ arrangement. We can also arrange litigation costs insurance.
We can advise on:
1 Financial Product Mis-selling
Our banking litigation practice advises trustees, SMEs and individuals on possible claims arising from the mis-selling of banking products.
We are completely neutral and much of our work consists of independent, impartial advice to trustees as to whether they are obliged to pursue claims for the mis-selling of financial products. If there is a claim to pursue, then we will responsibly and diligently pursue your objectives.
We have been involved in numerous interest rate derivative mis-selling claims and represent trustees, SMEs and others in seeking to escape from punitive break costs or to claim damages for the harm caused by these products.
You should be aware that mis-selling claims can become time-barred and we are seeing a number of clients now that are already out of time for taking steps to protect their interests. You should act quickly to avoid this.
2 Privy Council
We adopt a flexible approach to suit the needs of overseas law firms and are committed to providing a seamless service to the underlying client.
