Adam Sturt, Partner, Dispute Resolution
I am a partner with more than 18 years’ experience in resolving disputes for corporate clients from a broad range of commercial sectors. I always seek to resolve disputes efficiently and early through mediation and negotiation and bring a pragmatic and commercial approach to clients’ dispute resolution needs.
I represent national and international businesses across all forms of dispute resolution and international arbitration (I am experienced in Arbitration under LCIA, ICC or Uncitral Rules) with many matters having an international or cross border element.
I advise on a wide spectrum of complex contractual disputes, director, shareholder and partnership disputes, restrictive covenants, contentious intellectual property (involving trademark, domain names, copyright and registered and unregistered design rights), claims arising from corporate deals (including warranty and indemnity claims), insolvency, agency and distributor disputes. This is in multiple business areas, including automotive, professional services, heavy engineering, manufacturing, luxury goods, technology and IT.
I have particular expertise in cases requiring injunctive relief and delivery of goods or information and am qualified to act as a supervising solicitor where searches take place under Court Order. I am also experienced in acting for European subsidiaries of SEC listed companies in US regulatory investigations.
In my spare time I cycle, watch motorcycle racing and rugby, and run around after my children.
