Dispute Resolution

Dispute Resolution

Success means different things to different clients. To some it is a knockout blow in court. To others, it’s much more conciliatory. We understand this, and achieve it. We have a distinctive approach to providing advice. We always start by asking one question: What does success look like to you?

Our dispute resolution team forms one of the largest, strongest and most talented commercial litigation teams in Scotland. Our client list and our Chambers UK and Legal 500 Band 1 rankings are the proof.

We are savvy. We are credible. We are thinkers and doers.

We get to know our clients and their businesses – how they operate and what’s important.

The upshot is that clients often ask us to help them with their high level strategy, guiding them to anticipate and avoid problems before they arise. If a dispute is unavoidable, we use all of our experience to fight the client's corner. We handle important cases for top Scottish and international clients. And in other jurisdictions, leading law firms rely on our help too. Governments, global conglomerates, high profile individuals … they all turn to us for legal expertise.  Standard Life, BBC, Vodafone, Santander, Wood Group and Johnson and Johnson, Scottish Rugby Union, the Harris Tweed Authority... we’ll stop naming names, now. But you get the idea.

Our all round credentials in commercial disputes are impressive. Add to this our Band 1 specialist teams and you get the picture.
