Dispute Resolution

Disputes are a fact of life; it is how they are dealt with that makes the difference.

We have an award-winning commercial litigation and dispute resolution team in London and St Albans, led by commercial litigator Paul Marmor. Paul is ranked as a ‘leader in the field’ by Chambers and Partners, a leading guide to the legal profession.

The top-tier team handles matters ranging from large-scale, complex, multi-jurisdictional actions being heard in the High Court, to debt recovery, fraud, financial services, and contractual disputes in the County Courts. Our practice focuses on means of alternative dispute resolution, particularly mediation, the use of which we call upon whenever possible. We are also experts in business debt recovery, click here to find out more about our fixed-cost debt recovery service.

We focus on providing a prompt, accessible and responsive service that manages risk and maximises the strengths of the client’s position. We look to achieve the best results at the most effective cost, with an emphasis on providing commercial, strategic advice.

We are also experts in property litigation, please click here to go to our Property Disputes service page.

Much of our work involves parties in multiple jurisdictions.  Through our membership of the Alliott Group, together with our active participation in the International Bar Association,  American Bar Association and International Association of Young Lawyers, we have strong relationships and can provide a seamless, one-stop approach to international litigation. We can offer the expertise of international teams for China and South-East AsiaRussia and the CIS region and French-speaking countries.
