Dispute Resolution

Our highly regarded team, consistently acknowledged as such by Chambers UK and The Legal 500, has substantial experience in working collaboratively with our business clients to devise tailor-made strategies to avoid possible disputes and to effectively resolve those that do occur.

We deal with a broad cross-section of cases with a diversity of subject matter from complex, high value, cross-border disputes and challenging public authority action and decision-making by way of judicial review (doleance), to breach of contract cases and mediating to resolve long-running, intractable cases.

Whilst we have a strong record of success in the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques such as mediation, we have also represented clients in a variety of tribunals and public hearings and inquiries (including, but not limited to, representation at Coronial Inquests and Town and Country Planning Appeals) and at all levels in the Isle of Man Courts, up to and including the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.

Able to draw upon our experience of having been involved in some of the Island’s most high profile and challenging litigation, we have a proven and recognised record of providing reliable, commercially driven advice and delivering an all-round good quality and effective service.
