Our team of experienced and specialist commercial dispute resolution lawyers have a strong track record for resolving business disputes quickly and cost-effectively. We will explain your options and work with you to agree the optimum strategy when disputes arise. We are praised by our clients for providing clear, practical and commercial advice.
Our objective is always to place our client’s needs first and find solutions which are best suited to their requirements.
Our solicitors are all experienced negotiators and we regularly use Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) such as arbitration, adjudication and mediation. These processes are frequently quicker and cheaper than litigation and can help to preserve business relationships.
We offer full litigation support at all levels of the court system and can offer funding arrangements that will strengthen your position and give you certainty over costs.
We regularly advise upon:
- contract disputes;
- corporate disputes, including shareholder remedies, breach of warranty claims and unfair prejudice;
- construction disputes;
- defendant industrial disease disputes;
- property and land disputes;
- partnership and LLP disputes;
- professional negligence; and
- intellectual property.
