Serle Court provides a wide range of services across a broad range of Practice Areas. Serle Court’s core practice is litigation: we can provide bright and effective barristers at all levels to conduct all types of business litigation, and are experienced at putting together streamlined and powerful teams of counsel for some of the largest cases in the world.

Our members are often instructed on opposite sides of the same case – in some cases in recent years, all barristers on all sides have been from Serle Court and we understand the overwhelming need for confidentiality in such cases and have put in place effective systems to ensure the separation of clerking and document handling, so that clients may be confident that their interests are protected.

Although Serle Court is a leading litigation set, we also undertake a significant amount of advisory work, across the whole range of our Practice Areas. Because our members appreciate both the practical and business realities of legal problems, we aim to provide clear and imaginative solutions, and helpful advice. In addition to advisory work some members also provide drafting services.

As a result of extensive experience working in foreign jurisdictions we are also able to provide expert evidence on English law in a number of foreign jurisdictions.

In recent years Serle Court has also positioned itself in the vanguard of the ADR revolution, with an unusually large number of highly regarded mediators and arbitrators as well as many members with extensive experience of appearing in these alternative dispute resolution forums.

However you wish to instruct us, if the matter is urgent, we will aim to provide barristers capable of responding quickly and effectively.
