Dispute Resolution, Healthcare and Professional Discipline

  • "Everyone in the team is extremely meticulous, well trained and dedicated to their clients"


  • An interviewee praises the team's "knowledge of the business area, familiarity and expertise"; "We trust their advice and we have a very good working relationship with them"

Real Estate

  • "The overall attitude of the individuals we dealt with inspired us with confidence but also ensured we fully understood what we were signing at the end of the day. Every accommodation was made to facilitate whatever was required, be it a home visit to get documents signed or witnessed, or renegotiating a clause with the developer because we changed our mind at the last minute"
  • "Knowledgeable, commercially aware, with great attention to detail and very trustworthy"


  • A robust team acting on a broad selection of media law mandates. The practice provides key publishing sector clients with pre- and post-publication support, including the defence of defamation claims.
