Dispute Resolution

For more information, please contact Nigel Kushner at nigel.kushner@wlegal.co.uk.

Our skilled team of litigators offer pragmatic and honest advice from the outset. They will act for you throughout the whole process, without delegating to a large team of associates and will always aim to find a solution without having to rush to court – if this is a commercially sensible approach. Our dispute resolution services include domestic and international and include litigation and arbitration. Where appropriate we will act on a conditional fee arrangement or on a (no win no fee type) damages based agreement. We may be able to arrange “after the event” insurance to protect you against paying opponent’s costs if for whatever reason you are unsuccessful. As an alternative, we can work on hourly rates – the choice is yours. We regularly act for large, multinational businesses and high net worth individuals. Where appropriate, we may work closely with those providing you reputational management and investigatory assistance.
