Commercial, realistic and pragmatic solutions


The globalisation of business, and the Isle of Man’s position as an established international finance centre, has resulted in an increasing number of often complex commercial business disputes which require high quality, but practical, legal advice.

Our advocates specialise in cases involving more significant commercial and corporate disputes, insolvency, fraud and asset tracing, trust disputes, financial services and professional negligence. We are also very experienced in dealing with administrative law issues and white collar criminal investigations, prosecutions and defence work.

We act for a broad range of foreign and domestic clients including high net worth individuals, multi-national corporations, corporate and trust service providers, regulatory bodies and leading international law firms. We offer a real depth of experience and our trial advocates have covered the full range of contested commercial and regulatory matters in the Isle of Man.

We are aware that litigation is both expensive and time-consuming; our approach is therefore always to try and offer commercial, realistic and pragmatic solutions to client’s problems. We will explore all potential avenues of negotiation and alternative dispute resolution, where appropriate.

Our advocates also have considerable experience of cross border litigation and are well versed in the issues arising from conflicts of laws, forum and jurisdictional disputes. We can advise on the most appropriate forum for litigating a case and take court action to try to ensure that litigation takes place in the most appropriate forum for the client.

The work that we undertake is very often complex, and frequently matters must be handled with great speed. It is in such cases that our depth of experience becomes truly valuable.
