Civil and Commercial Litigation

Much of our business is contentious and we have expertise for astute handling of commercial disputes. We explore the core issues between the parties and the most appropriate method of resolution. We regularly participate in all forms of dispute resolution, from litigation or arbitration to dialogue, structured negotiations and formal ADR processes such as mediation.

We advise on disputes resolution across a number of industries. We approach litigation in a pragmatic way and encourage our clients to do likewise, focusing on sensible and achievable outcomes.
