The team’s approach focuses on creative and tailored solutions that involve anything from litigating a case to the end, to resolving issues through commercial negotiation, and everything in between. Built on decades of experience litigating some of the world’s largest and highest-profile cases, Debevoise’s European team is able to draw on its practical understanding of the full range of dispute resolution strategies to find the best solutions for clients.
The practice’s matters are typically international, often with parallel claims in multiple jurisdictions and fora. The team manages these complex cross-border disputes through providing strategic advice, representation and advocacy to ensure an efficient and cost-effective resolution. Debevoise has an enviable track record of outstanding results, both in achieving victories in court, and in obtaining favorable settlements that enable clients to reach their commercial objectives.
A key strength of the practice is the experience of its senior partners in Europe. They include a former UK Attorney General and one of the leading QCs and advocates in the UK, a leading London litigator with over 25 years’ experience, a litigator whose 20-year career has been spent in London, Hong Kong and Seoul, a Paris based litigator who has represented defendants in some of the most publicized insider trading cases, and a Frankfurt partner with over 25 years’ litigation experience.
The approach of the practice, together with the experience it can call upon, has promoted Chambers UK to state the practice is “admired for the breadth of its offering, which encompasses the resources of stellar teams in the USA, Europe and Asia. Regularly acts on multibillion-pound cases for big-name clients.”
