Particular strengths include equine law and litigation arising either from the theft of confidential or commercially sensitive data or from the setting up of competing companies. ‘Standout lawyer’ and associate partner Tim Speed, who recently moved from the Birmingham to the Nottingham office, represented West Bromwich Commercial in its long-running dispute with a guarantor regarding the non-payment of liabilities and allegations of misrepresentation.
