Commercial & Corporate Litigation

Expanding international business, Brexit and changes in regulatory requirements are just some of the key challenges and opportunities impacting the magnitude and nature of large commercial and corporate disputes issued in the English courts. We are experienced in dealing with the legal costs in large-scale commercial and corporate litigation in the Business and Property Courts of England and Wales.

With our expertise in legal costs, we provide a full range of legal costs services in commercial and corporate proceedings brought on behalf of companies, partnerships, investors and individuals.


We address and resolve multifaceted challenges in relation to all aspects of legal costs in the full spectrum of commercial and corporation litigation, from commercial contract and shareholder disputes to contentious corporate transactions and relationships. The breadth of commercial and corporate disputes is significant and so we shape our strategic approach to the unique circumstances and challenges of each matter - from routine matters to the most complex, multi-jurisdictional disputes.


Our dynamic and client-focussed team have expertise in both the costs management process and detailed assessment procedure. We prepare costs budgets that properly reflect the important interaction between case and costs management in commercial and corporate litigation, and we have extensive experience in the preparation of substantial bills and statements of costs, as well as the ensuing procedure for the assessment of costs.

Commercial and corporate litigation is complex by its very nature and the ensuing procedure for the assessment of costs often is too. The bills of costs are often substantial, required to be split into many parts due to the nature of the retainers with the clients and, in highly contentious disputes, subjected to issue or percentage-based costs orders. We understand that costs-related court documents in claims of this nature must be immaculately prepared and our clients can trust us to prepare their costs pleadings with the meticulous attention to detail required.


Commercial and corporate disputes are sometimes funded under damages-based agreements or third party funding. When evaluating whether legal matters are suitable for these types of funding, it is important to assess a number of factors, including the overall cost of taking the claim to trial and the likely recoverable costs inter-parties. We can assist solicitors and funders by providing accurate estimates of costs that enable them to establish with confidence whether a legal matter is suitable for these types of funding arrangements.
