VWV has a long track record of recovering significant sums for clients, which would not have been possible if not for our willingness to share the risk. These claims have included, amongst other claims, professional negligence and debt recovery claims for institutional clients, business owner disputes for major corporates through to SMEs, insolvency disputes, construction and engineering disputes, and contentious probate disputes.
