Commercial Litigation; NEWCASTLE


DICKINSON Dees LLP once again heads the ranking with an 'excellent' team in the North East. John Marshall, Guy Harvey and Craig Monty are all recognised in the market place. 2006 saw the team advise on a number of major sensitive and high-value disputes within the chemicals industry. New partner Paul Stewart was busy advising the firm's rail clients on a number of disputes. The firm's London office, opened in 2007, will enhance the services offered to clients as the team is increasingly handling London-based litigation.
