About Connell Associates LLP

Commercial Litigation & Debt Recovery
Law Firm of the Year UK

As a well established law firm, we have a talented team that handles a national and international case load from our Liverpool headquarters. Obviously it is always preferable for those concerned to avoid litigation, but in reality this is not always possible. We feel it is essential to properly understand the practicalities of any issue in dispute. We then strike the perfect balance between persistently pushing against the opponent and ensuring the claim is resolved as quickly as possible in the most commercial manner.

The work we do speaks for itself...

We count a raft of enviable household names amongst our clients, these include: AXA Insurance Plc, Amey Enterprise, Sky TV, Cartier, Amlin Insurance, Haymarket Publishing, Capita Plc, Friends Life Group and many small and medium-sized companies.


Businesses operate in an increasingly litigious environment and uncertain economic climate.

Companies are therefore looking for professional partners that provide the right advice and are commercially minded, that recognise the needs of their client above themselves and have an interest in mutually profitable opportunity.

Commitment to this objective, and to the future of modern commercial litigation practice is central to the Connell Associates LLP ethos.

We are an established legal practice with a clear focus on the areas of practice that makes us so successful, yet with ambitious plans for future investment and expansion of the business.

Operating from our wholly-owned flagship Grade II listed building in the heart of Liverpool’s business district our position near to the city’s new county courts gives us a robust platform to take advantage of the new European enforcement legislation.

We see the future of litigation not only as a major growth area for the firm but also of significant potential benefit for our clients.
