Pitman is an SRA-regulated business law firm run by UK solicitor Robert Jonathan Pitman.

I offer a professional, personal service and specialise in Marine, Commercial and Business law. My practice is international. Consequently, I work with a network of correspondents in the EU and many other jurisdictions, in particular Brazil.

I pride myself on having a good understanding of differing cultural requirements, having worked on the ground in London, New York, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Korea. I work in English, Portuguese, Spanish and written French.

In all cases, I charge realistic hourly fees or agreed capped fees on a stage-by-stage basis.

I get the best results using streamlined and well planned consultations and practices. To achieve this, I ensure I have a thorough understanding of my clients’ goals.

Client feedback tells me they value the personal touch, my tenacity and attention to detail.

I am insightful, seek out the best angle to attain the end game and pride myself on good communications with the client. I provide updates at each stage of the work.

Whether advising or engaged in dispute resolution, my aim is to provide insights built on experience and effectiveness, focused on implementing clients’ objectives.

Finding an amicable solution to a dispute is usually the preferred outcome. It is usually the cheapest means of resolving a dispute. This gives the client the opportunity to continue a business relationship if desired.

If negotiation fails, the next step is a structured mediation. This is also more cost effective compared with arbitration or litigation. However, it does not guarantee a final result.

The final step is resort to formal dispute resolution, whether arbitration or litigation.
