The 'knowledgeable, in-depth and quick-to-respond' litigation team at Jefferies Essex LLP  'has developed in strength and experience, attracting challenging work beyond its size' and giving 'clear, concise and relevant advice' to 'enviable large corporate clients', especially from the motor manufacturing and dealership sector. The lawyers handle disputes relating to M&A transactions, commercial contracts, professional negligence and franchise agreements. 'Seasoned litigator' and trained mediator Mark Rothman, who 'resolves litigation issues in the briefest time and achieves excellent results', continued to represent New Dawn Tax Partnership and more than 400 high-profile individual clients in a £10m tax-loss claim against HMRC in the High Court. Head of department Sarah Mitchell, who 'shows a very high level of understanding and knowledge of her client’s business', acted for a motor dealer as claimant in a six-figure breach-of-contract dispute with a software and digital solutions provider. Clients further recommend 'impressive legal brain' Duncan Bennington, who represented the majority shareholder as defendant in a petition dispute with the minority shareholder, following a claim for the latter's removal as company director.
