"The group is praised for its deep knowledge of clients’ industries and its ability to “marry rapid responses to advice you can have real confidence in.”….Peers say DMH Stallard is “building up a really serious reputation.”"
The group is made up of highly experienced civil and criminal litigation lawyers who have a track record for dealing with disputes effectively and on a commercial basis. We cover trade marks, patents, design rights, copyright, database rights, confidential information and know how, unfair competition and trading practices, employee management and all related contractual, competition and reputational issues.
The group has also embraced Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), mediation and expert determination as effective ways of resolving disputes on amicable and commercial terms, and the team includes partners who are accredited mediators with the Centre for Dispute Resolution (CEDR).
We know that the pricing of legal services is a key issue for our clients in this area. We have responded to this demand for commercially priced legal services and we are committed to delivering financial certainty to your disputes; we agree the scope of work with you at the outset and then provide you with a cost for each key stage. If a fixed fee for the entire project is possible we will discuss this option with you.
