The Department

Mishcon de Reya LLP has one of the largest and most comprehensive Dispute Resolution offerings in London; over half of the Firm's lawyers are litigators.

From a core of Fraud litigators we have built a team that covers most major areas of the Dispute Resolution world including : White Collar Crime & Investigations, Tax, Competition and Anti-Trust, International Arbitration, Intellectual Property and Fraud Defence & Business Disputes.

Each dispute requires a bespoke solution, sometimes aggressive, sometimes measured. We fight our client’s corner : we take ownership of our client's dispute so that we can resolve it as effectively as possible.

We fiercely guard our clients' interests.

Commercial Litigation

Increasingly complex ventures and tougher trading conditions have led to an increase in business disputes. For many law firms, litigation is a distraction from their everyday focus.

For us, dispute resolution is at the heart of our firm. We are unusual for a firm of our size in that we remain largely conflict free and able to act on large commercial disputes with financial institutions.

We act for businesses that range from owner-manager operations to multinational entities with disputes which cross several jurisdictions.

Our leadership of the International Fraud Group and membership of LegalLink gives us a reach far outside our London and New York homes.

Technology underpins everything we do. MDR Discover, our in-house team of eDiscovery experts, reduces the cost and complexity of large-scale litigation.

We invite legal start-ups into our incubator MDR LAB, allowing us to experience the next generation of litigation tools as they are developed.

Our Cyber-Security team MDR Cyber forms a critical part of our investigatory capability, teaming criminal, civil and regulatory lawyers with non-lawyer cyber-security specialists.

This online / offline capability allows us to partner with you throughout the whole investigation process; from discovery, through to managing any media issues that arise in the aftermath.

We have excellent links to litigation funders and have experience of creating group litigation claims and shareholder actions, allowing corporate entities to leverage claims as a potential asset.

We recognise that each dispute requires a bespoke solution. When we litigate we are known for our assertive style. Our commercial arbitration team works across a range of sectors, including energy, mining, construction, finance, telecommunications, shipping, real estate and life sciences.
