Conflict of Interest



The importance of truly independent advice in tense transactional or dispute situations is obvious. At Lowndes Jordan we have recognised this need in the corporate, mergers & acquisitions and commercial litigation areas by establishing a specialist conflict of interest team.

That team provides our assurance to clients and their long-standing advisors of:

  • A smooth transition of the project from the conflicted firm to Lowndes Jordan, which seeks to enhance the relationship between the referring firm and the client.
  • Drop everything, hands-on, commitment in times when, inevitably, getting up to speed quickly and accomplishing the client's immediate objectives is imperative.
  • Utmost discretion and confidentiality in circumstances where a change of law firm can be seen as a sign of weakness by competing interests.
  • Technical expertise and commercial acumen at a level that gives clients and advisors confidence that the client's position is not weakened.
  • The support of a range of experts at every level and in every field with whom we work on a constant basis. Merchant bankers, top QC's, forensic accountants and valuers, IT security and discovery experts - our proven ability to construct the right team sets us apart and is an integral factor in our success.
  • Our undertaking not to attempt to displace the relationship between the client and conflicted firm - our integrity means far more to us than that - our task is to complete the project - nothing more; nothing less.
  • Cost effective, personal service - we will not take advantage of a situation where a client has to be referred to us - our fees will be commensurate with those that the conflicted firm might have charged.

Conflict of interest situations are challenging for all involved - a challenge that we thrive on.
