Welcome to DaySparkes

DaySparkes is a boutique litigation firm based in the heart of London’s legal quarter, which specialises in commercial and banking litigation, arbitration and ADR.

We aim to deliver exceptional, director-led, advice and representation at realistic charge-out rates, with an emphasis on helping our clients to achieve their commercial objectives at the earliest possible stage.

Our core practice areas consist of complex commercial litigation and banking/finance disputes, but we also advise on a range of other areas, including professional negligence, international arbitration, and property claims.

We are conflict-free, meaning that we are able to act against banks and other large institutions. In recent years, we have acted for corporations, hedge funds and high net worth individuals in a number of significant and high profile cases resulting from the fall-out of the last financial crisis.

Our lawyers are drawn from leading international law firms and have a wealth of legal and tactical knowledge in areas such as multi-jurisdictional disputes, asset tracing and the obtaining/defending of freezing injunctions and other forms of urgent interim relief.  We are recognised in the Legal 500 as a leading firm for both commercial and banking litigation.
