Dispute Resolution

Ambos NBGO takes a different approach to disputes – we firmly believe that our clients are best served by disputes counsel with specialist knowledge of the industry and/or the law underlying the dispute.

This means that in each area where we offer litigation and arbitration expertise, our disputes counsel have in-depth understanding gained from handling the full range of legal issues facing those businesses. We have this degree of experience in biotech, oil and gas, construction, insurance, shipping and transport, employment, IP, IT, telecoms, real estate, insolvency, administrative law and the environment.
