The team displays exceptional strength in handling disputes relating to insurers and professional partnerships but its diverse caseload also includes railway litigation, judicial review and minority shareholder claims. Martin Soloman and Rodney Jones are the two most well-known partners, and considered to be "clued up and on the ball - they quickly react to our needs," say clients. Soloman also gains praise for his expertise in the mediations of commercial disputes, while Jones is highlighted for being "diligent and thorough." Another growing component of the team's workload involves Trusts, Inheritance Act claims and probate disputes."

  • "Sources 'can't speak highly enough' of this local player. The litigation department covers all aspects of commercial litigation... In the past year it handled several cases relating to the railway industry and financial institutions. The team is able to call on the expertise of its highly regarded private client group on contentious trusts and probate matters and is also skilled in alternative dispute resolution. Clients appreciate the firm's problem-solving approach, reporting that 'you feel as though the lawyers are always working with you and not against you'."
