Commercial Disputes
  1. Commercial Disputes

    A City-quality practice operating outside of London - that’s what clients say about our Commercial Disputes team. 

    Our experienced litigators offer quality, commercial advice on complex, high-value – and often cross-border – disputes, providing an alternative offering to City firms.  

    Acting for entrepreneurs, owner-managed businesses and large corporates, we advise on the full range of commercial disputes that arise in the course of operating a business. These include, but aren’t limited to, contract disputes (and advice on issues of contractual interpretation), shareholder disputes, M&A disputes including those arising out of earn-outs and deferred consideration, professional negligence claims, licensing disputes and advising on risk. 

    We also manage large-scale eDisclosure projects which are increasingly a feature of disputes work.

    A genuinely partner-led practice, our clients benefit from a strategic approach and commercial advice  focused on achieving their business objectives.

    Led by the energetic and approachable Sarah Murray, this team has grown quickly and really made a splash in the market as a genuine out-of-London alternative legal service provider.

    They are incredibly commercial in nature, and have taken the time to really understand the commercial drivers for us which has allowed them to shape their advice to our real needs.
