Dispute Resolution

We live in an increasingly contentious world, with cases still emerging as a result of the financial crisis and businesses in all sectors under the regulatory spotlight.

When your business is involved in any kind of legal dispute it's crucial to work with lawyers who are hands-on, cost-effective and flexible enough to respond quickly and intuitively to your unique situation and needs.

We know that there are many different ways a dispute can be resolved and work closely with our clients to understand every aspect of their business, priorities and goals. This allows us to find the best way forward for our clients and to advise on the commercial implications of a dispute, ensuring the process remains as stress-free as possible. Our approach is practical, responsive and tailored to the client's interests. 

Our expertise and reputation means we're first choice for a range of clients, including banks, trust companies, high net worth individuals and top law firms.

Teamwork is key and our Dispute Resolution specialists work closely with our Corporate and Banking & Finance practices to advise on restructuring, recovery and insolvency matters. We often co-ordinate advice from our multi-jurisdictional teams, meaning that our clients benefit from the knowledge and depth of experience of our people across the globe.

"They have a proactive attitude, a helpful approach and in-depth knowledge of Guernsey law and procedure."
