Commercial Litigation

With a deep sector expertise and an elite disputes-focused team, Enyo Law is ideally placed to advise its clients on the most complex challenges facing their businesses.  It does so with strategic insight, innovative thinking and a drive to succeed, whether through hard-fought litigation or nuanced negotiation.

Enyo Law is pre-eminent in the London commercial litigation market, with vast experience working with clients to protect and assert their interests.  We are largely conflict-free, independent and can act very quickly.

Our dynamic team has been curated to ensure that our expertise spans a wide range of industry sector specialists.  Our clients include multi-national corporations, major state-owned organisations and governments, and high net worth individuals.  We handle business-critical, complex litigation on their behalf, often spanning multiple jurisdictions.

We have the agility to work with leading individuals in particular sectors and jurisdictions as our clients require and our team is regularly called upon to lead, or form part of, global teams of disputes experts, achieving a seamless service in a cost-effective way. 

We are known for fighting and winning cases for our clients against the top tier of global law firms.  As a result, we are one of the most influential disputes-only firms in London and a natural go-to practice for many of the largest and most strategically significant cases litigated here.  We are approached directly by international clients or their advisers and remain the natural choice for clients involved in matters that would present conflicts for other firms.  Our partners are trusted by their peers to provide an active, partner-led service at every stage of a dispute and to deliver an outstanding service.

Where the pursuit of litigation is not the most appropriate means of achieving our client’s commercial objectives, we are experienced in pursuing other avenues of dispute resolution to mitigate risk and achieve solutions with minimal business disruption and effective cost management.
