We are a boutique London law firm independently recognised as a leader in international litigation and corporate and commercial disputes. Ranked amongst far larger global law firms, we have appeared in some of the biggest commercial cases in the High Court and before International Arbitrations.
We primarily act in relation to company, joint venture, trusts, breach of contract and insolvency law disputes. We regularly achieve success for clients, making new law and clarifying existing law in a wide range of different areas and sectors, from oil and gas to technology, from financial services to hotels. Recent reported cases include High Court and Court of Appeal judgments on the principle of good faith, double derivative shareholder actions, the value secured by floating charges, verbal constructive trusts, competing arbitration and court clauses and varying retainers. We have a particular interest in pursuing insolvency practitioners, banks, large financial institutions and multi-national law firms. We have a track record of establishing board room deceit as well as negligence, and are keen to take on cases which have fundamental consequences for entire industries.
We are always approachable, and are fiercely protective of our clients’ interests. We listen, think laterally, and communicate succinctly. We exercise judgment decisively and deliver value: we will always consider charging on a contingent basis where we are only paid if we win, or alternatively on a fixed fee. This commercial strategy endears us to entrepreneurs and executive management, and allows us to take on any opponent, whether backed by private or public capital or a sovereign state.
