Experience shows that addressing and managing commercial disputes early mitigates escalation and is more likely to bring about a satisfactory and commercial resolution.
We have approached courts for urgent interlocutory relief on short notice, obtaining orders for urgent relief, and pursued damages claims in contractual disputes arising from breaches and repudiation of contracts, directors’ disputes, shareholder disputes and disputes between companies and its shareholders and breaches of fiduciary duties.
We also conduct commercial intellectual property litigation in asserting and defending our clients’ rights in information technology ventures, appearing in the Chancery and Technology and Construction Divisions of the High Court in London, as well as the Court of Appeal.
As an adjunct to our advice in registration of intellectual property rights, we assist our clients in obtaining review of administrative decisions refusing registration of intellectual property rights before The Patent Office and the European Trade Marks office in Alicante, Spain. Our litigation department has been successful in obtaining substantial damages and compensation, injunctions and ancillary relief in large and complex commercial disputes, including cases involving technical factual elements.
We think that it is difficult to conduct commercial litigation and argue the merits of a case without a proper understanding of technology involved.
