Fight back at atelier resolved (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

retaliate

Here is my best explanation:

'fight back' is the definition.

(seen before)

'at atelier resolved' is the subsidiary indication.

'resolved' is an anagram indicator.

'at'+'atelier'='atatelier'

'atatelier' anagrammed gives 'retaliate'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for retaliate that I've seen before include "Strike back, counter", "Fight back", "Get revenge", "Make tit-for-tat attack", "Strike back, avenge", "Take revenge for a perceived wrong", "Attack in return for attack", "Get one's own back", "Give back blow for blow" and "Repay injury with similar one".)
