Commercial litigation

With highly skilled commercial litigators across Europe, Asia Pacific, the US and the Caribbean, we assist with complex, multi-jurisdictional cases of all kinds. Whether you are an investor, business or brand, our creative solutions will get results.

We combine local and international litigation experience with strategic and commercial advice to achieve the best outcome for you or your business.

Our aim is to defend the interests of individuals, businesses and brands, and we do not shy away from taking on major institutions to achieve that, pursuing them aggressively where necessary.

Experience to solve all of your disputes

Our global litigation team serves a broad range of domestic and international commercial and individual clients, from family offices and high-net-worth individuals to large corporate entities. We are experienced in almost all areas of litigation, including asset recovery and enforcement, contract and company disputes, financial services disputes, fraud, white collar defense and investigations, professional negligence, insurance and restructuring and insolvency. Where necessary, we are also experienced in challenging decisions by bringing claims for judicial review.

With litigation lawyers spread across the world’s key dispute resolution centers from New York to Hong Kong, we work together as a single team to help you to protect your interests domestically and globally. We deal with matters swiftly and efficiently, which is key in complex and large-scale international disputes.

We also offer a number of specific teams, including handling tax controversy, media, privacy and reputation management, commercial arbitration and litigation within the worlds of art, luxury assets including jet and yachts and sport, where we are ideally placed to respond to cross-border issues.

Global advice, wherever you are

With offices worldwide, we can guide you through your dispute process and help you make informed and appropriate decisions. Our European litigation team is known for taking on major fraud, asset recovery, enforcement and financial services disputes – and, unlike other firms, we act in disputes against major banks.

In the US, we have a wide range of experience across commercial matters, pursing settlements, litigation, trials and appeals aggressively, with an excellent success rate. We have one of the largest dispute resolution teams in Singapore, called on for complex and cross-border commercial disputes and acclaimed for work in high-value insurance and professional liability matters. We also have a strong, commercial litigation presence in Hong Kong who are experienced in complex corporate disputes, joint venture and shareholders’ disputes and insolvency. We have represented clients involved in litigation before Hong Kong courts and in Mainland China (with local counsels).

In addition, our experienced offshore team in the BVI is frequently called upon to assist foreign investors in asset recovery and seeking and resisting applications for injunctive relief before the BVI courts.

Funding your dispute

Should you need help covering the costs of your dispute, we will advise on various options for litigation funding. These include obtaining external funding for significant cases, insurance, conditional fee agreements, fixed or capped fees in appropriate cases.
