Solicitor at Coffin Mew LLP

Mark Lee James

Solicitor - Partner - Dispute Resolution

SRA ID: 295574

My core area of work is dispute resolution. I have extensive experience of handling difficult and complex business disputes and litigation with the appropriate commercial awareness. I regularly advise clients on claims for breach of contract and/or negligence, including running negligence claims against other professionals. I also advise on director and shareholder issues and on breach of restrictive covenants by former employees and breach of confidence claims. This can sometimes require urgent injunctions. I am recognised and listed in both Chambers and the Legal 500 and have particular expertise in Construction Law, providing advice to contractors in the construction industry, or employers, who have encountered issues with the build. I advise on all forms of building dispute and Adjudication proceedings or Arbitration/Court proceedings where required. Additionally, I have expertise in Sports Law, where I have acted for players, clubs and agents in disputes, some requiring Arbitration proceedings to the FA or equivalent governing body. I always aim to negotiate a first class outcome for our clients. I will do what it takes and utilise any available forms of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, if that is the best way to achieve our client’s objectives. At the same time, I think it is important not to be afraid to fight a client’s case through the Courts if the case requires it. I work with clients and not against them. I provide absolute transparency around funding and the level of costs being incurred throughout each case. My goal is simple: I want to deliver a cost effective resolution to our client’s situation. If the costs of proceedings will be disproportionate to the objective, I will explain this along with all of the risks associated. This enables our clients to carry out their own cost benefit analysis and decide whether to proceed and incur the costs.
