London remains a highly attractive location for the conduct of complex, high-stakes, high-value dispute resolution, with areas of particular growth including regulatory-related litigation, enforcement issues and matters relating to cyber security and data breaches. Group litigation has also experienced an uptick, a trend expected to drive further growth in the burgeoning litigation funding sector. Major London players include the magic circle and other long-established market leaders such Herbert Smith Freehills and Hogan Lovells, alongside increasingly prominent US challengers led by Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan and White & Case.
