Our clients include private and public companies, sovereign states, public or governmental bodies, high net worth or high-profile individuals, hedge funds and investment houses.

There is no typical case for the Litigation & Disputes team: we have worked on large-scale, high-profile, strategic, transactional and contentious matters across a range of sectors and jurisdictions. We succeed because our team has a mix of skills designed to provide optimum results:

  • Practicing lawyers who bring credibility and knowledge that is respected and trusted;
  • Experienced communications strategists who understand how to stimulate a desired response, which channels are best suited to deliver the messaging to drive this, and the ability to create and deliver campaigns across all media;
  • Political advisors who can work around any of the political issues that may arise from a transaction or dispute.

We give legal teams the help they need to deliver key strategic objectives for their clients:

  1. Achieving their clients’ legal objectives
  2. Fully protecting the reputations of their clients during a dispute
  3. Assisting in pre-litigation negotiations
  4. Enforcing judgments or arbitration awards

Our unique processes, like our Litigation Lifecycle Planning Guide, allow us to create an actionable plan rather than merely responding to a situation.

We regularly lecture at leading law schools and launched Chancery Lane Chats the first Podcast series dedicated to litigation communications.
