They work well together and can be contacted easily. Their depth of knowledge is exceptional, and this knowledge is used cleverly, with individual client's needs always at the forefront.‘ 

We have specialist expertise in many areas, including: 

  • Commercial property and lease disputes – our specialists cover: rent arrears, termination and renewal of leases, taking possession and breach of lease.
  • Corporate recovery, restructuring and insolvency - We see insolvency as a last resort and we will work through other options in an attempt to get your business back on track. Our insolvency experts work on all aspects of administrations, receiverships and liquidations. 
  • Contractual disputes and debt recovery – complex contractual disputes and effective processes to help you recover debts such as enforcing court orders against debtors.
  • Defamation – our specialist libel and slander solicitors can tell you if you have grounds to make a claim.  There is a 12 month time limit on these claims – so act quickly if you think you have a case. 
  • Intellectual property – IP disputes tend to be complex. We can identify and explain the threats you may face and how to protect yourself, plus how to make the most of your intellectual property.
  • Company disputes – managing common disputes about for example, the strategy, partner performance or succession planning. It’s vital that you start pulling in the same direction again and we can help.
  • Sports litigation - assisting governing bodies with the case management and regulatory aspect of anti-doping rule violations.
  • regulatory law – we are experts in making applications, and assisting and representing you in relation to regulatory enforcement action.

Legal 500 UK 2023

'Sara Stabler’s commercial awareness ensures that the client’s best interests are always primary. Very personable approach'

Mr Jon Tidbury, Ramsden Trailer Conversions


I'd like to say how helpful Sarah Stanyer was. Sarah gave me reassuring and great advice first thing, followed by an excellent email that appears to have made the gentleman in question back down. For the average 'Joe Bloggs' like me with no legal knowledge, it was invaluable.
