We operate in these areas to create and deliver innovative, insightful, high quality, client-focused services that provide real commercial value.
Our experience in contentious matters and our awareness of how to manage and take advantage of the procedural and substantive aspects of the law allows us to devise and present a case in the clients’ best interests, including at first instance and appeal level.
For this reason, the attorneys in our group are sought after by corporations from around the world to take on difficult, commercially important cases.
The team is also actively involved in the area of food technology working for clients who specialise in batter coatings and methods for producing cooked and part-cooked foods, clients with a particular emphasis on microwavable products (containers and food compositions), and those working in salt reduction technologies and flavour improving compositions.
