Practice Areas



Our approach to litigation, honed from many years of advocacy and trial experience, focusses on identifying your requirements in consultation with you and working closely with you to find an effective and economically viable solution.

Litigation is rarely sought after or welcomed by anyone, but it is often a personal and business-life reality that can be thrust upon you, whether as a result of a dispute, dissatisfaction or even bad luck. While we believe as a philosophy that clients are usually best served by avoiding the uncertainty, stress and expense of litigation, we recognize that principled resolution is not always possible. Where litigation is necessary or dictated by the overall economics of the situation (the “risk/reward” ratio), we aim to provide our clients with vigorous, skilled and unflinching representation.

Our role is to make the litigation process as stress-free as possible, by providing you with a considered and objective assessment of the merits of your case at the outset and throughout as your matter proceeds.  If necessary, we draw on the expertise of specialist London counsel with whom we have close professional relationships, so as to minimize the uncertainty involved and to develop an effective and confident strategy to achieve your litigation goals.

We consult and liaise closely with our litigation clients throughout. We realize that litigation can be a stressful experience and we understand the pressures, including the psychological pressures, on our clients. With this in mind, we will endeavour to keep you fully informed of all significant developments, so that you will feel in control as we steer you through what can at times prove to be a complex and time-consuming process.

While there are no guarantees in litigation, we firmly believe that our approach; putting our clients’ needs and goals first, working from an objective assessment of the merits of the case and an agreed litigation strategy, offers our clients the optimal solution to their litigation needs.
