Alston Asquith’s commercial disputes practice advises on all aspects of dispute resolution, with a particular focus on ownership, exploitation and infringement of intellectual property rights and commercial disputes in the technology sector.
Our global dispute resolution and litigation teams are frequently instructed to deal with complex commercial and technology disputes and all of our lawyers are skilled in litigation, arbitration, investigations and alternative dispute resolution and will deploy that experience to help our clients to devise the best strategies suited for their individual needs.
We advise CEO’s and boards of large corporations and financial institutions on complex, high-value and sensitive multi-jurisdictional disputes. With significant experience resolving domestic and cross-border mandates, international arbitrations and investigations and enforcement for clients across all the key industry sectors including: emerging commercial technologies; telecommunications; core industries and markets; transport; and financial services.
We help clients through the lifecycle of transactions, in particular at an early stage, on how to avoid getting into disputes. When disputes arise, we guide clients through pre-contentious negotiations and help them choose the best dispute resolution option.
We begin every potential claim with a full strategic review. This involves an in-depth cost, risk, benefit analysis of the claim, considering the strengths and weaknesses of the case in detail before we would proceed.
It is core to our philosophy that we only expect you to pay for what you value so finding out what you value is our starting point. Disputes should only end up in court if you decide that they should, so we offer alternative ways to get the result you want. Moreover, our proprietary cost-estimating and project management software allows transparency and predictability in our work execution against budget.
