High-court litigation specialist David Archer is the personal go-to for a wide range of corporate, UHNW and international clients. He joined Pitmans’ City practice in 1992. Archer has recently been involved in a welter of matters from hacking and confidentiality claims to professional negligence and breaches of contract. ‘Clients rightly seem to be more wary about the cost and delay of litigation and are willing to be more creative about resolving disputes,’ Archer says. ‘There has been a growth in litigants in person at court, due to the expense of lawyers, and this is slowing up the court timetable.’ But litigation isn’t always the answer: ‘I prefer to mediate and negotiate early dispute resolution where that can be achieved.’
