The sheer diversity of the case load and the breadth of our client base reflects the reputation of our dispute resolution team.  A team skilled in providing practical advice to both commercial and private clients on how to achieve effective and swift solutions to disputes, avoiding substantial costs often associated with court proceedings. 


Recent examples of our work include:

Representing various clients being prosecuted by the Environment Agency in respect of offences contrary to the Water Resources Act 1991 and the Environmental Protection Act 1990; and
