Dispute Resolution

Our Dispute Resolution specialists are highly regarded by their clients and their peers for their excellence and ability to advise on all aspects of tax, commercial and regulatory disputes. Our lawyers demonstrate strong commercial judgement, deep technical expertise and a balance of aggressive tactics with sensitivity to the issues as well as a commitment to delivering successful results quickly, discreetly and effectively.

We are particularly noted for our expertise in multi-jurisdictional matters, which is enhanced by the sharing of our knowledge across PwC’s global legal network, the largest of its kind. PwC’s global legal network has over 3,500 legal professionals in 90 countries.

Our Commercial Disputes team are able to help you with everything from contractual disputes, professional negligence claims, investor/shareholder disputes, partnership disputes to civil fraud claims which frequently involve risk and reputation management concerns.

We also regularly work alongside the firm’s forensic and corporate intelligence teams to provide a bespoke asset tracing offering that harnesses the power of PwC services to its full effect to deliver a complete one stop shop service for clients in multi-jurisdictional enforcement battles. We appear in courts, tribunals and international arbitration fora across the world on behalf of a diverse range of clients and a vast array of industrial and professional sectors.

Our Regulatory Disputes team are focussed on helping you to ensure that your business operates in compliance within the UK, regional and international regulatory frameworks, including the UK Bribery Act, UK Modern Slavery Act, the corporate criminal offences under the UK Criminal Finances Act and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. We are particularly experienced in investigating internal policy breaches, with a focus on helping to protect your company’s reputation at a time of increased scrutiny from regulators, both domestic and global.

Our Tax Disputes team have settled several multi-billion pound disputes with HMRC and are particularly strong in active litigation. We can help you with both direct and indirect tax issues and help you settle disputes before litigation begins.
