Why choose us…

Niche. All we do is litigation and dispute resolution. We act for high net-worth individuals, owner-managed businesses and other law firms across a wide range of areas of law with claims ranging from the low thousands to tens of millions of pounds. In some areas of law, we are recognised as market leaders and pioneers.

Innovative. Too many lawyers fail to think outside of the box. Not us. We pride ourselves on being truly innovative in the way that we approach your litigation, bringing claims that you may not have thought of and deploying tactics that you may not have considered.

Proactive. Unlike most lawyers, we do not sit back and wait for something to happen. We make things happen. We do not wait for you to contact us for an update. We regularly update and involve you in resolving your dispute as cost-effectively and promptly as possible.

Tenacious. We are the kind of lawyers that you will want on your side, not against you. We are aggressive when we need to be, fighting hard to achieve the best result possible for you at all times.

Commercially-Minded. We find out straightaway what you want when it comes to resolving any dispute and make sure we remember those goals at all times. We speak in plain English and avoid becoming embroiled in unnecessary or self-indulgent legal arguments that are of little relevance to resolving your dispute.

Strategic. We devise a plan, stick to it and refine it as a case progresses. A unique Dispute Resolution Strategy Memorandum underpins the strategy that we will adopt in resolving your dispute.

Professional. We are proud to be professional in everything we do. We are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and aspire to the highest standards of ethics. We are insured in the unlikely event that we make a mistake for which we are rightly held to blame.

Bespoke. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to litigation. Every client’s case is different. We work alongside clients to ensure that they are happy with the strategy, tactics and costs budget. We are always willing to shape our approach to suit our clients’ needs.

Teamwork. We work closely with our clients, involving them every step of the way. That teamwork builds trust, with many clients staying with us (and referring new business to us) for years to come. It also means cases are run cost-effectively and with a minimum of fuss. Throughout, every client can call on a team of skilled professionals led by a senior lawyer with many years of experience. You are never fobbed off to an administrator or a clerk.

Empathetic. We know that litigation can be worrisome and time-consuming. While we are familiar with the court process, we appreciate our clients may not be. We work to put our clients at ease throughout, making it clear that we are on their side doing our utmost to win their case for them.


“When I was being mistreated by a major organisation I turned to Griffin Law. They were swift in their actions, realistic in their advice and open about the costs. They saw me through by being extremely sensitive to me and equally aggressive to the other side. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
