We are pleased to welcome clients of the Astraea Group to Trowers.com. We appreciate you taking the time to learn more about us.

We are an international law firm with over 150 partners and more than 900 people located across the UK, Middle East and Asia. During our long history, we have held fast to the values and characteristics – such as service, quality, integrity and innovation – that have made us not only a leading law firm, but an inclusive and exciting place to work and establish a career. Some 240 years on, these attributes remain solidly embedded in our culture and our ways of working.

Our clients rely on us for our responsive and commercial advice and every day we strive to provide the best possible service, legal expertise and support that we can, building on our firm foundations. In short, we constantly aim to do what we do even better.

We are delighted to be associated with the Astraea Group (www.astraea-group.com) having worked with its founder James Ramsden Q.C. over many years. Our dispute resolution practices are very much aligned, in areas of expertise and our approach to helping our valued clients. These clients include corporates, SMEs, business founders and high net worth individuals in a range of sectors.

We assist our clients on wide range of contested matters, including:

  • Corporate and commercial disputes
  • Fraud and risk
  • Banking disputes
  • Insurance
  • Public law disputes
  • Real estate disputes
  • Restructuring and insolvency
  • Private Wealth disputes

We recognise that the optimum resolution of a dispute demands technical expertise, a cogent strategy and measured commercial judgement.  Our commercial disputes teams operate across our UK, Middle Eastern and Far Eastern offices, and we appreciate the difficult sensitivities involved in resolving disputes between parties from different countries.  A large part of our work is international, both through our own offices globally and our membership of Interlaw (with lawyers in over 140 cities worldwide).  

We will always consider every option for dispute resolution and tailor our approach so that your desired outcome remains our focus.   We frequently work with clients to manage business critical issues before they move to active litigation.  Having been joined by His Honour David Grant on his retirement from the High Court, we offer invaluable in-house judicial insight.

Above all we are results orientated and frequently deploy mediation and other ADR as part of a settlement strategy from the outset.  We regularly work with litigation funders to enable clients to fund major litigation off-balance sheet and hedge their risks.  We also have a wealth of experience obtaining and defending injunctions and other interim relief to secure your ultimate entitlement or to leverage early settlements.

If you would like any further information or details of our wider practice offering, please get in touch with the key contacts above who will be happy to help you.
