About us

With over 30 years experience of litigation and international commercial law Irene Dallas and her team bring real world experience to help avoid or resolve costly commercial disputes.

Irene is a former senior litigation partner at a leading London law firm. She left to set up her own practice in 2003, meaning she can offer a City service at a more reasonable price.

Dallas & Co work with a wide range of clients, from large international corporations and state owned companies in energy, finance and construction, to smaller owner operated businesses and franchised businesses.

Above all Irene and her team believe in providing a personal service where clients only have one major point of contact who works with a client from start to finish.

Our Fees

We pride ourselves on providing a city type service at a more reasonable cost.

Our fees are based on an hourly rate and we will keep you fully informed of the likely-cost to you as your case progresses.

We are always willing to discuss carrying out work on a fixed fee or capped rate basis, depending on your needs and requirements, to give you certainty on cost.

Depending on the value and complexity of a dispute, we may be able to procure litigation funding with the assistance of experienced brokers.
