Rainer Hughes

Dispute Resolution

Our Dispute Resolution team regularly acts for individuals, corporates and businesses based in the United Kingdom. One of the leading teams recognised by the Legal 500, we are recognised as an independent and definitive guide to the best law firms in the UK.

Clients rely on us to ensure matters are resolved efficiently and swiftly, avoiding unnecessary media attention and disruption.

Our lawyers have significant experience and excellent track record of resolving cases upon favourable terms for our clients, both before proceedings are commenced or during other stages of the dispute.

We provide strategic straightforward advice and are tenacious in protecting our client’s interests. We understand the commercial reality of dealing with a dispute, and the risk and pressure that may be associated with litigation. Our primary aim while acting for you is to try and resolve the dispute swiftly and upon the best possible terms at an early stage using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) where possible. 

If necessary, we will contest the matter in court, defending and protecting your interests with the best legal resources and minds available. Rainer Hughes successes showcases how effective we can be in achieving the right outcome for our clients.

A business may not have control over when and how a dispute may arise, but they can influence how effectively any dispute is dealt with by seeking early and effective legal advice. The financial implications of a poorly handled commercial dispute can be considerable both in terms of financial loss and business destruction. We always discuss with our clients the strategy and decide on the right tactics, plan the work that will be involved, use the resources available, and deliver a result efficiently.
