Keidan Harrison LLP is a new London-based boutique disputes and insolvency law firm. We undertake a range of international and domestic cases, including substantial High Court litigation as well as international arbitration and alternative dispute resolution. Our focus is on high value and complex matters, representing businesses and high-net-worth individuals based in the UK and abroad, as well as insolvency practitioners, trustees, directors and other office holders.
We represent a value-driven alternative to full-service law firms. The firm’s focus on disputes work means that we are able to remain free of conflicts of interests. We can act tenaciously, and with confidence against almost all financial institutions, multinationals and other listed corporates.
The firm: Keidan Harrison LLP was founded in May 2020 by Marc Keidan and Luke Harrison, both well-known disputes lawyers who had built and led teams at former highly successful disputes–focused practices. The founding partners have both been recognised for their work in the leading legal directories for many years, with Marc Keidan ranked as a Leading Individual amongst London lawyers for both banking litigation and commercial litigation in the latest editions of The Legal 500 and both Luke and Marc commended in a number of areas. Luke is a member of the prestigious TRI 250 (an index of those responsible for the progression of industry standards, and inspiring excellence across the restructuring and insolvency industry). He was also awarded an Emerging Leaders Award by the M&A Advisory magazine in 2017.
The firm’s partners acted on some of the most notable and high–profile financial cases arising out of the 2008 Financial Crisis and are now well-placed to assist clients to deal with financial and a range other disputes arising in the wake of Covid-19.

Our approach is partner-led and highly personalised, ensuring our clients’ needs are at the forefront every step of the way. Whatever the particular challenge faced, we have the expertise, dynamism and commercial nous to achieve our clients’ objectives. We aim to apply innovative and bespoke strategies to get the right result, whether that is victory in Court or a negotiated outcome, often through the use of Alternative Disputes Resolution processes such as mediation.
