Delivering solutions for leading global organisations to manage risk and resolve complex disputes

We understand that managing risk and disputes diverts valuable resource and time away from a business’ core objectives. Disputes can prohibit growth, expansion and ultimate success.

Our solutions meet our clients’ objectives and needs. Dispute avoidance and early resolution of disputes is a large part of our practice.

We see each dispute as a project. We strategically manage every project together with our clients to deliver practical, commercial ways of managing risk and resolving disputes. Every project is appropriately resourced by allocating suitable expertise and adopting innovative methods of cost control.

Our team of commercial litigation solicitors are ranked by both Chambers UK and Legal 500. They provide advice and representation on a variety of commercial disputes to businesses of all sizes.

Our dispute resolution team is one of the largest outside London and acts for leading global organisations, regularly managing heavyweight litigation. We provide smart solutions at all stages of the dispute resolution process. This includes:

  • early advice to avoid or prevent a risk or issue escalating;
  • seeking settlement on commercially acceptable terms by using various methods such as mediation; or,
  • litigation or arbitration, as appropriate.

"Sarah Perry advises on disputes related to significant value commercial contracts and finance-related matters. She is described by clients as "determined, commercial, pragmatic, technically capable and forthright."
