The litigation and dispute resolution department at Morgan Rose acts for clients across the full range of civil and commercial disputes, working together with clients to resolve cases quickly and cost effectively, by arbitration, mediation or litigation depending on the most appropriate method for the client’s circumstances. 
 
We are regularly instructed in multi-party actions and complex litigation. We also have considerable expertise in acting for multiple claimants in actions where a large number of them have a similar cause of action against a specific defendant such as in investment frauds. Our practice involves all of the traditional types of claims including professional negligence, director and shareholder disputes, contractual disputes, insurance disputes, tax investigations and appeals and civil and commercial fraud claims and international asset recovery. 
 
Morgan Rose clients include: high net worth individuals bringing claims for misuse of investments; liquidators bringing claims on behalf of companies under the Insolvency Act; administrators of companies and companies bringing multi-million pound appeals in the Finance & Tax Tribunal; accountants defending professional negligence proceedings from former clients; individuals bringing claims against insurance companies; international companies bringing claims against individuals, companies and liquidators in respect of frozen investments; defendants who are or have had assets frozen as a result of Worldwide Freezing Orders and Proprietary Freezing Orders. We also act for clients defending proceedings instituted under Part V of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (civil recovery) and where prosecuting authorities like the National Crime Agency (NCA) adopt the powers of HM Revenue & Customs to pursue unpaid tax.
 
We are also frequently instructed in the first tier Tax Tribunal appealing VAT assessments raised by HM Revenue & Customs and the disallowance of VAT claims.
