Our team guides clients through the intricacies of complex and significant contentious issues. Many of the cases we conduct involve multiple parties and novel legal or factual issues. Our case strategy begins with identifying your commercial and regulatory objectives and ensuring the focus throughout is on the protection of your interests. We understand that litigation should always be a last resort but, where necessary, must be handled strategically and commercially to protect your reputation.

We specialise in sensitive investigations and inquiries - from internal issues to regulatory investigations to Commissions of Inquiry. We understand the need for clarity of thought, discretion, insight, and professionalism. We know that how investigations are handled can be the best protection against bigger issues.

We deliver timely and cost-effective advice developed within the framework of agreed objectives. This means we continually reassess the progress of disputes and discuss strategy with our clients to ensure that strategic choices remain aligned with those goals and that there are no unwelcome surprises.
