Through your Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI), our specialist litigation lawyers can help you resolve your legal dispute as quickly and efficiently as possible. We’ll take the time to understand your unique situation and devise a bespoke strategy, including out-of-court options such as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods. 

Our litigation team of 30 lawyers handle over 2250 similar claims every year, including County and High Court trials. Overall, we’re the second most active law firm for litigation in the UK. If court litigation is the best approach for your dispute, you’ll have the full benefit of our experience and expertise to achieve the best possible outcome.

But we’ll also help you explore all other options to de-escalate your dispute and find a solution without going to court. We’re very familiar with all methods of ADR such as mediation and arbitration and have used them to great success for our clients.

What sets our team apart is the specialist knowledge of proceeding with LEI funded cases. We have specialist sub-teams who’ll help if you have a particularly complicated or high-value case. We are the recommended solicitors for many leading LEI providers.

Whether you’re making a claim or defending against one, you’ll get technically excellent, commercially-minded, and proactive advice.  We act for businesses and individuals in commercial, consumer and property disputes

We understand how disruptive legal disputes can be for you. That’s why we always focus on resolving disputes as quickly as we can. We’ll help you cut through the noise with jargon-free and practical advice, so you can focus on what’s important.

Every dispute comes with risks and we know that everyone has different attitudes towards them. We’ll work closely with you to analyse your risk areas and develop a plan that you’re totally comfortable with. And you’ll get regular progress updates so you’re always completely up-to-date with developments.
