Litigation is an increasing part of today’s operating environment for both the public and private sectors, impacting on your organisation and reputation if not handled with the correct level of skill, planning and expertise.

Our specialist team of barristers and advocates are experienced in criminal, regulatory and a wide range of civil matters; from early stage advice and representation at hearings, through to post trial and dealing with cost recovery and appeal.

The benefits of barristers and solicitors working together at Browne Jacobson LLP are significant; providing clients with a seamless service, easy access to discuss matters strategically as cases progress, immediate advice and attendance at Court hearings in place of expensive briefs to external counsel and accurate costs budgeting information provided throughout the case.
