Welcome to Griffin Law

We pride ourselves on our innovative approach to litigation. In addition to the use of our bespoke Dispute Strategy Memoranda, we continue to explore creative avenues for the progress of a claim alongside more traditional approaches. This may, for example, include the commencement of proceedings or the filing of applications that may, at first, appear to be a distraction but which often are, in fact, capable of securing a speedier resolution of the substantive dispute between our clients and opponents than might otherwise be the case.

We are also proud to be particularly commercially-minded. As well as sharing the risk of litigation with every client (and thus having a vested interest in the result such that we will work even harder to secure a win for its clients because we have “skin in the game”), we remain wholly focused at all times on your commercial goals. We do not allow ourselves to be distracted by legal minutiae. Our objectives are the same as yours: the prompt, cost-effective and commercially advantageous resolution of the dispute in hand.

We are also proactive. It is accepted that, compared to most other solicitors, this is not a difficult distinction: too many members of the legal profession are too reactive and fail to progress their clients’ affairs promptly. We are different. Our internal case management structures, coupled with our own commercial interests in making sure cases progress to a satisfactory resolution, mean that clients’ cases are proactively managed and progressed.

We are also renowned for our tenacity. The best advertisement of this is the way that many opponents, after they have lost a claim, become our clients. This does not mean that we are aggressive for the sake of it but we balance a fearless zeal for protecting and advancing our clients’ interests with a sensible restraint within the circumstances of a particular case. We do not, however, shy away from being the kind of law firm that any client would prefer to have representing them than being on the other side.

Why choose us…

Niche: all we do is litigation and dispute resolution. We act for individuals, families, 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.

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 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 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: at the outset we identify what you want when it comes to resolving a dispute, making sure we remember those goals at all times. We speak plain English and avoid becoming embroiled in unnecessary of self-indulgent legal arguments of little relevance to resolving your dispute.

Strategic: we devise and agree with you a plan to achieve your objectives, adding refinements as the matter proceeds, without deviating from the goal. A unique Dispute 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 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.

“In my dealings with Griffin Law I really felt comfortable. These were lawyers who “had my back”, who always kept an eye out for pitfalls and opportunities. They were aggressive without being unnecessarily so. They were cost-effective without being cheap and they always remembered what my goals were in seeking to resolve my dispute. They were a pleasure to work with.”
