Maitland has the breadth and depth to provide advocacy and advisory services in every area that can arise in a business dispute. It is recommended in Chambers UK in the largest number of legal practice areas for any commercial Chancery or Chancery set. Please click on the links on the left hand side of this page to find out more about our expertise in individual practice areas.

We handle a very wide range of cases, from major international litigation involving multi-national companies to county court disputes.  We provide advocacy and advisory services for claims at every level of civil tribunal in England and Wales. Much of our work is done in London, although we frequently advise and appear for clients in other parts of the United Kingdom.  Many of us also practise in other jurisdictions including Hong Kong, Singapore, the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Brunei, Cyprus, the Channel Islands and the USA.

Modern cases often do not fit neatly into traditional categories. Our size and breadth of expertise ensures that we can provide teams of barristers to deal rapidly and thoroughly with complex cases that raise a wide range of issues. As such, we have an advantage over those who specialise in narrower fields of business law.
