One law firm can look very much like another. We don’t want to be part of that crowd – we want to stand out. We strive to be different in the way we run our business and in the way we think and service our clients. We are driven by our core values and a culture that we believe set us apart.
1. We’re conflict-free
We are a boutique firm focused solely on disputes. We are not on panels and do not need to run conflict checks across multiple teams. This means we are almost always conflict free and able act against banks and large corporations where many other City firms can’t. We can run and conclude a conflict check rapidly, so that we can swiftly accept instructions, particularly in urgent cases.
2. We’re innovative
We encourage a culture of innovation throughout the firm, led by the ideas of everyone, not just our partners. But we don’t simply talk about new ideas – we implement and continuously improve on them to create efficient and cost-effective solutions. Our lawyers are inventive and flexible so we can be responsive to client needs when they arise. We operate using the latest technology including AI, we are paperless and committed to collaborating remotely including through the conduct of remote hearings.
3. We’re bold
We are tenacious, confident and steadfast in our approach to disputes. We believe that being bold not only is often the best approach to obtain the desired outcome, it creates results that meet or exceed our clients’ expectations. We are accustomed to acting in difficult cases against well-resourced opponents and we use our agile and flexible approach to give our clients an advantage. Whether it’s cost, speed or conceiving and litigating novel legal arguments that set precedents, we look to go that extra mile.
4. We’re dynamic
Our dynamic approach enables us to rapidly scale up to meet the needs of a particular client or dispute. Working with leading barristers’ chambers and through our network of consultants, we can quickly add lawyers to the team in a manner that avoids clients having to pay for standing overhead costs within hourly rates. In cases involving extensive documentary evidence, we work with third party e-discovery consultants using the latest big data analytics and predictive coding to quickly ascertain the factual matrix.
5. We’re value-driven
We focus on delivering a high level of value and efficiency in everything we do, approaching every instruction with a firm eye on delivering return on investment through unique, tailored solutions. Clients receive regular budgeting and costs information and we are experts in value engineering dispute resolution. We help our clients hedge the risk of a dispute either by, in appropriate cases, sharing some of the risk through conditional fee or damages-based agreements or by arranging litigation funding through our network of litigation funders.
