If you or your company are contemplating civil litigation, it is usually as a last resort, and means that all attempts to settle or ADR (alternative dispute resolution) have failed.
You will need to instruct a specialist team of civil litigators with strong, broad, highly honed negotiation/litigation skills, lengthy experience, commercial acumen, and a successful track record. Thankfully, you have found such a team.
Our specialist civil litigation team (all of whom are City firm trained) punches well above its weight and acts for a whole range of individuals and companies both in the UK and abroad.
We understand just how stressful and frustrating litigation can be, and we offer a personal, supportive service led by directors and senior specialist lawyers. We pride ourselves upon our fast, honest, direct, responses; our availability to our clients; our cost-aware, time-efficient approach; and our highly effective and successful Letters before Action.

A major consideration for any client concerns the issue of funding litigation. Sometimes the recoverable costs involved outweigh the sum in dispute.
There are, thankfully, a whole raft of alternative funding schemes available e.g. director's legal insurance, CFAs (conditional fee arrangements), discounted CFAs, legal expenses insurance (often covered in household insurance and company insurance schemes), fixed fee, or third party funding.
You will find that our fees are highly competitive and reasonable in any event.
