Putting your interests first

Proactive, pragmatic and always forward thinking, our highly regarded contentious practice is the firm’s largest department. We are open minded and collaborative, yet always focused on getting you the best possible outcome.

A partner you can trust

We know that every case and every client is different, so we adopt a flexible approach. In many instances, we help you avoid the need for litigation entirely, advising on risk or steering clients through difficult contractual or legal issues. You may wish to consider alternative dispute resolution (ADR) which we’ve found to be a very effective way of reaching a solution, without the expense of court action.

However, when a dispute is unavoidable and litigation is the only option, we’re fair, but firm. We focus on the key legal and factual issues and we will always talk your language, providing clear, accessible support.

We cover a range of specialist areas, with many of our team regarded as leading practitioners in their fields. They belong to numerous professional bodies including The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), The Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS), The Property Litigation Association, The Agricultural Law Association and The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.
