Our Commercial & Corporate Disputes Practice has extensive experience in complex and multi-jurisdictional commercial disputes. We handle the full spectrum of civil and commercial matters, from breaches of directors’ duties and trusts, breaches of corporate governance and regulatory requirements to corporate conspiracy, asset-tracing and fraud, and all manner of disputes relating to joint ventures, international sales, franchises and investments. We are also able to handle international commercial arbitrations in any jurisdiction, with our partners being accredited arbitrators and mediators as well as counsel.
We pride ourselves in knowing our clients’ key objectives, and know that one of their aims is to avoid costly litigation if possible. When litigation is unavoidable, our lawyers focus on the company’s commercial objectives, while assessing legal, commercial and reputational risk. Depending on our analysis of the negotiating weaknesses of opponents, we craft optimum trial tactics or mutually satisfactory settlements. We have broad experience in corporate risk management and conflict management, as well as in running or defending corporate and regulatory investigations.
Our clients are key corporate and senior business figures across major industry sectors – asset management, automotive, banking and capital markets, communications, energy, entertainment and media, financial services, government services, health, hospitality, technology and transport.
