No business wishes to litigate, but litigation is occasionally the only way to secure a legitimate and necessary end. Volterra Fietta has significant experience in the English courts in high value complex commercial and other disputes. We also have particular experience in acting and advising on court involvement in numerous countries around the world. This covers multifaceted commercial and contractual issues as well as more traditional public international law issues such as sovereign immunity.
Volterra Fietta’s careful but dynamic strategic approach optimises the chances of successful litigation or, if the circumstances demand, ensures advantageous settlements.
In addition to litigating substantive issues before the national courts, litigation is frequently integral to the management of the arbitration life cycle. Court involvement can be required at any stage of an investor-State or commercial arbitration dispute, from assisting in the constitution of an arbitral tribunal, supporting the collection of evidence or preservation of property in dispute, to the enforcement of an award.
Many of our lawyers are English qualified and several have Higher Rights of Audience enabling them to appear before all civil courts including the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.
