Head of Commercial Litigation, Clive Zietman, has published a book on Kindle titled ‘Win without war: How to avoid litigation’. The book serves as a guide to avoid civil litigation and how to limit the risks associated with litigating. All proceeds raised from the sale of the book are being donated to Pancreatic Cancer UK.

Over seven chapters, the book outlines why disputes arise and how to avoid the most common pitfalls of litigation. Clive covers how to avoid contractual disputes and being defrauded. The book also sets out how to avoid rushing to sue and what other options might be available.

Clive goes on to look at how to manage your documentation to minimise the risk of litigation arising. He also deals with how to navigate different jurisdictions and how to manage legal costs.

In the book’s forward, Nigel Tozzi QC comments:

“When I first came to read this book it crossed my mind that, as a litigation specialist, it is surely not in Clive’s interest to advise people how to avoid litigation or limit their legal fees: such an informative guide could be seen as a suicidal enterprise. However, as the anecdotes dotted throughout this book demonstrate, there are more than enough people out there who choose to ignore sage advice, even when they have sought and paid for it. A reader might think that the suggestions in this book make such obvious sense that it would be rash to ignore them. The reader would be right. But, happily for those of us who make our living from dispute resolution, there are still countless numbers of people out there who manage to ignore the warning signs, or seem determined to have a fight.  If you are not one of that number, and you wish to avoid paying vast sums of money to litigation lawyers, I urge you to read and digest the wisdom that is contained on every page of this book.”


Win without War: How to avoid litigation by Clive Zietman is available to purchase on Kindle here.
