Our clients expect us to resolve disputes quickly, on best possible terms and within agreed budgets and this is what our lawyers do. We work with individuals and entrepreneurs, SMEs and large corporations. Whilst many of our clients are in Hertfordshire and across the South East, we increasingly work with clients from around the UK and abroad.

Disputes rarely contain themselves to a single legal issue so our lawyers have broad experience. We also have strategically developed market leading expertise in specialist areas and sectors.

Our team can advise you on all aspects of commercial disputes, as well as, regulatory, compliance, commercial debt recovery, wills/trusts and property disputes.
