Practices

Our full service dispute resolution group advises on a wide range of contentious matters, taking a results-driven approach. Our aim is to assist clients in managing disputes as efficiently as possible.

We advise our clients on pre-action issues with a view to resolving contentious matters without the involvement of courts. Our lawyers focus on securing pre-action settlements and using alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration.

Our wealth of experience encompasses professional indemnity, D&O and general insurance, shipping (wet and dry), defamation, employment, fraud, shareholder/franchise disputes and property/building management issues. Medico-legal law is an area of particular expertise, with two medical doctors on our team of practising lawyers. We also handle injunction proceedings, judicial reviews and public inquiries.
