Ones to Watch for 2016: The Best Boutique Law Firms

Enyo Law LLP is a law firm that acts exclusively in complex and high-value disputes whether litigation or arbitration. Enyo is recognised internationally as one of the leading disputes practices in the City of London. We spoke to Simon Twigden, Partner at Enyo, to find out more about the firm he helped to found 6 years ago, and about its expertise across a broad range of industry sectors.

Our team has a reputation for succeeding in some of the highest value, most complex and prominent disputes heard before the High Court in England including cases which inter-relate with proceedings in other jurisdictions.

Furthermore, we also have extensive international arbitration expertise. This experience has been acquired around the world in many different arbitration seats, under the rules of the various international institutions, as well as in cases brought under ad hoc rules. We have the deep knowledge of the arbitration world that is needed for effective advice on identification of arbitrators for selection/nomination.

We also have experience acting in investment treaty arbitrations and have a wealth of understanding of the strategic (and other) considerations in such actions.

Our clients include multinational corporations, major state-owned entities, governments and high profile individuals. These clients are predominantly international, and we are accustomed to dealing with problems that cut across borders and jurisdictions.

We do not operate a formal network connecting us to other lawyers or firms as we wish to retain the flexibility to work with the individuals most appropriate to each client’s needs. We do, however, maintain strong contacts with lawyers in all the principal jurisdictions, including in Europe, the US, the CIS, North Africa, and the Middle East, as well as in the offshore jurisdictions.
We are frequently instructed to co-ordinate lawyers in multiple jurisdictions on a single case.

Moreover, cultural differences are often central to the disputes on which we advise and our language skills and practical experience of working alongside international corporations, institutions and their domestic lawyers inform our strategic advice. Many of the cases we are instructed in have a strong political dimension that calls for particular sensitivity and discretion and we have specialist expertise in handling such cases.

Specialising purely in contentious work, we are the natural choice for clients involved in disputes that would present conflicts for major city law firms or for those clients looking for sensible, commercial advice coupled with a partner-led service.
