Commercial & Civil Disputes

Our team has a leading reputation for resolving high-value, and often complex, civil and commercial disputes.


Swift action is key when there is an urgent need for information to identify wrongdoers, or to find or freeze assets.

Many commercial and civil disputes will have multi-jurisdictional elements, which can mean navigating numerous international legal frameworks.


Baker & Partners provide timely, clear and practical advice and representation across a wide range of commercial and civil disputes.

We specialise in obtaining targeted injunctions to obtain information and to freeze assets in support of claims.

With significant experience in working on multi-jurisdictional cases, the team provides bespoke strategic advice tailored to each client’s needs.

We act for both overseas and local businesses, financial institutions and individuals in a range of commercial actions. These include breach of contract/covenant disputes, breach of trust actions, professional negligence, company law claims and shareholder actions.

  • Freezing and disclosure injunctions.
  • Civil fraud claims.
  • Breach of contract claims.
  • Company disputes.
