Our Approach

We help to minimise the stresses of litigation by building genuine and solid personal relationships with our clients.


We work with our clients to determine their objectives in any litigation. Invariably there are a plethora of considerations that come into play at this early stage. These may range from commercial, emotional, political to strategic.

Listening intently to our clients and thinking through with them the issues to identify their real goals, our aim is to articulate a strategy to deliver those goals, whether that be by a negotiated commercial settlement or by immediately launching or defending court proceedings.

Our expertise includes Identifying resource requirements and putting together the best possible team of leading external counsel and experts, taking great care to identify the appropriate skill-sets of team members. Being London-based we have tried and tested links and easy access to world-class specialist counsel and expert witnesses to bring together a forceful and winning partnership, at short notice.

Adopting a forensic approach to the available evidence we are not afraid to ‘think outside the box’ as we work to achieve our clients’ objectives. Always adhering to the highest professional standards, we are not afraid to challenge perceived wisdom and will always push the boundaries of the law if it is in the interests of the client to do so.

Part of the way we minimise the stresses of litigation is to ensure that our clients remain in control. Our clients have direct access to the firm’s principal Akhtar Raja who personally supervises most of our major cases. We keep our clients informed at all stages on both the costs of their case and progress. We communicate in the preferred way of each client and take time to explain the relevant (and often complex) issues in non-legal speak.
