London: Dispute resolution

Commercial litigation

Within: Commercial litigation

Dentons recently merged with Scottish firm Maclay Murray & Spens, the London disputes team gaining Craig Neilson and Simon Colledge as a result. The 'outstanding practice' advises on the full suite of contentious matters, ranging from competition issues to banking, real estate and employment disputes; and it was particularly active in commercial arrangement disputes emanating from UK-listed companies; cross-border shareholder disputes; and internal management issues concerning directors' rights and duties. It defended RBS against Property Alliance Group's landmark LIBOR case, which was the first LIBOR-related civil claim against any bank to go to trial in England and Wales. Liz Tout is dispute resolution head; Daren Allen leads on financial and commercial disputes and investigations; and Adrian Giles is 'a trusted litigation solicitor'. Other recommended names are Felicity Ewing, Thomas Leyland and Akin Akinbode.
