Sometimes in business things go wrong and the implications can be far reaching. We understand the value of protecting your interests and are focused on achieving the best possible outcome for you.
Our partner led team has the expertise to manage any type of commercial dispute and we act for clients across a range of contentious issues whether it be contractual interpretation, boardroom fallouts, shareholder and joint venture disputes, defending free speech and protecting content, regulatory inquiries or commercial fraud.
Our clients range from the highest profile media and technology companies to high growth businesses and individuals, from international broadcasters and publishing groups to financiers, Hollywood film studios and online, digital businesses.
Disputes can be challenging, our clients rely on us to ‘cut through the noise’ and deliver clear, concise and commercially focused advice and strategies. We work hand in hand with colleagues from across the firm including our transactional and advisory teams, ensuring you have access to the right people at the right time.
Much of our work has a strategic impact, and we have been involved in some of the most significant and precedent setting litigation in recent years. Whether you’re a brand looking to cut ties with your corporate ambassador, a games developer having issues with fundraising, a film distributor in the midst of a rights dispute, a producer or broadcaster facing a format or ‘theft of an idea’ claim, an investor who has fallen out with a joint venture partner, or you’re coming under any other form of commercial or regulatory pressure, we’ve got the experience to help.
We draw upon decades of experience and industry knowledge to establish your position, develop and devise the most effective strategy and ensure the best possible outcome in line with your commercial objectives and drivers.
We are experts in all forms of alternative dispute resolution methods – including arbitration, expert determination and mediation and have negotiated countless settlements even in what look like the most entrenched and contentious commercial situations.
