Commercial Disputes

We represent companies, partnerships, charities and individuals.

Even the most successful business can become embroiled in a dispute tying up valuable management time, upsetting commercial relationships and sometimes affecting reputations. Disputes may arise with third parties such as customers, tenants, insurers, advisers and suppliers. They can also occur internally between directors, shareholders or partners. They may be small or even threaten the entire business.

We seek to identify your commercial objectives early on, establish issues and advise upon an appropriate strategy which is both realistic and cost effective protecting your assets and reputation. We will review the options with you and guide you through the case whether by means of Alternative Dispute resolution or Court action. We always aim to achieve the best result for you within a practical timescale and at reasonable cost.

We look for any lessons that the business can learn to avoid a similar situation arising in the future.
