General Commercial Litigation



Our General Commercial Litigation Team

42 Bedford Row’s commercial team has a wealth of experience in advising and representing multi-national corporations, institutions, SMEs and individuals in litigation, arbitrations and mediations, as well as in non-contentious commercial matters.

We provide pragmatic commercial solutions to business problems, as well as strategic advice on contentious and non-contentious matters, from draft contracts to standard terms and conditions of business.

Our barristers appear in all divisions of the High Court and in county courts across the country. While we are known for our ability as trial advocates, we recognise that litigation can be disruptive to business and are active in alternative dispute resolution, both as advocates and as accredited mediators.

In addition to our strong relationships with domestic solicitors, our members have acted in numerous offshore matters and cases involving cross-border issues and questions of jurisdiction. Our barristers have particular expertise in obtaining appropriate urgent interim relief, including freezing injunctions.
