Our commercial litigation lawyers advise claimants and defendants in cases involving accountants, architects, engineers, solicitors and surveyors. Our team provides representation at all levels of the court hierarchy and in alternative dispute resolution forums.
The nature of the firm’s practice means that real estate is invariably at the heart of most of the claims in which we advise. We have depth of knowledge and long-standing practical experience not only of all kinds of real estate transaction, but also of general commercial transactions and issues in the construction and engineering sector. We are familiar with the standards required of professionals operating in all of these fields.
In addition, credible, independent and effective expert witness opinion is always vital in professional negligence claims. We are used to assisting with the selection and correct instruction of expert witnesses, many of whom we have worked with previously.
We work with many clients across a wide range of sectors and industries on numerous and various problematic issues. These have included:
- Assisting clients to investigate allegations of professional negligence and advise in circumstances where clients believe they have given or received incorrect advice.
- Identifying possible causes of action and quantifying potential claims.
- Pursuing our client’s interests and seeking damages where appropriate, if necessary through the courts or via alternative dispute resolution channels such as mediation.
Whilst we are meticulous in our approach, we are also cost effective in the preparation of our cases. Our approach enhances the prospect of a good and timely settlement or success in formal proceedings.
- The team acted for a high net worth individual in a successful claim against solicitors for failure to draw up loan documents correctly leading to significant enforcement issues and consequential losses. The court proceedings were settled at a mediation.
We’re immensely proud of our client relationships. We strive to be a welcome and constant companion throughout their journeys.
Many of our clients have been with us for a long time: some since the firm began. We help them navigate matters to achieve the right outcome and we stay with them until everything has been resolved. By securing and protecting our clients’ interests, we give them the confidence and freedom to focus on their core business.
Our clients operate in different industries and sectors, but most of them have serious real estate interests, whether in the form of property in the traditional sense or other types of physical infrastructure.
