Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Our specialist team of over 50 lawyers manage dispute resolutions and as a result, have a proven track record of success in litigation and the management of commercial disputes.

Our teams are routinely ranked in the top tier by the legal directories, Legal 500 and Chambers. Indeed, Birketts has more ranked contentious lawyers than any other firm in East Anglia. Interviewees in Chambers [UK 2024] describe the Litigation Team as being “conscientious and diligent in its handling of cases and continues to provide exceptional support throughout”.

Our lawyers routinely conduct litigation in the High Court and the Court of Appeal as well as engaging in commercial arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Our opponents are typically major London and international law firms. We have strong links with proven junior and leading counsel in leading London commercial chambers.

We organise ourselves to provide specialist lawyers across a wide range of dispute types. The links below will provide further details of those services. If you require any assistance in finding the right team or lawyer the key contacts on this page will be pleased to assist.

At the outset we will provide you with a clear view of the strength of your case and a transparent and realistic assessment of costs.
