What makes us unique is the breadth of our expertise: we combine a genuinely national and international capability with a breadth and depth of experience.

The Carrington, Hall & Hamburg approach is quite different from that of many City firms. Instead of assembling armies of experts from different departments, we field dedicated, cohesive and thus more cost-effective teams, offering both specialist expertise and a broad commercial perspective. Together, the team members offer a powerful combination of technical skill, practical experience and business acumen to provide the commitment and high quality of service demanded by our clients.

As well as an imaginative approach to claims, we are also aware that there is more than one way to charge for legal services. This can include:

  • No-win, no-fee arrangements on an ad hoc basis
  • Other conditional fee arrangements
  • Global conditional fee arrangements to cover much or all of your recovery work
  • Fixed-fee, desktop appraisal

What is best for you depends on the type and number of your claims and your own facilities for, and approach to, handling claims. We can work with a variety of fee structures and, in discussion with you, we can create something unique.

We pride ourselves on understanding our clients' businesses from inside out, so that we can offer a seamless legal and commercial support service to them whenever and wherever it is needed.
