CANDEY is a leading litigation law firm specialising in high value global commercial disputes in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and International Arbitrations
CANDEY has been recognised by The Lawyer, Legal Business, Chambers and the Legal 500 as a leading litigation law firm in corporate and commercial litigation and international arbitration. We have appeared in a large number of significant High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court cases, making new law and clarifying existing law.
We are thoroughly commercial and enjoy what we do. Unlike nearly every other law firm we do not have hourly rate targets. Instead we believe in value based fee structures, aiming always to think smart. Incredibly collegiate, we aim to be outstanding lawyers by embracing the law and business. We aim to ensure that our legal team has a work life balance, where necessary doubling the size of a team instead of exhausting individual lawyers.
Our lawyers are all exceptional multi-talented solicitors and barristers. They are recruited on the basis of legal brilliance, nous, commercial acumen and a sense of humour.
We work closely with much larger firms as their litigation co-counsel whether or not our services are required due to conflicts. We always aim to be flexible, considered and sensible in relation to fees and our charging structures. We only do disputes and are unable to accept any instructions for corporate transactional work.
We have close and valuable relationships with law firms throughout the world.
We are not tied to a global network simply because we have an office there: we add value for our clients by choosing to work with lawyers we recognise as being the best in their region.
A number of our commercial litigation lawyers have been called and admitted to the bar of the British Virgin Islands. We are frequently in the British Virgin Islands where we work together with local BVI lawyers in leading cases before the Commercial Court and Eastern Caribbean Circuit.
