Our Approach


At RK&D, case strategy begins with identifying the client’s key objectives, which guide and remain the focus of our dispute resolution strategy.


RK&D takes on difficult cases and regularly delivers solutions. Many of the cases we conduct involve multiple parties and novel legal or factual issues. This reflects the firm’s entrepreneurial culture, which values innovation and creativity. We use our knowledge, intellectual rigour and experience to help clients make judgements and achieve their aims.


We work with clients to deliver timely and cost-effective advice developed within the framework of agreed objectives. We continually reassess the progress of disputes and discuss strategy with our clients to ensure that strategic choices remain aligned with those goals.


To be at the fore front of the legal profession requires foresight, a desire to share ideas and a willingness to have a voice on issues of importance. We have the confidence to challenge the existing thinking and to push boundaries.
