Costly commercial disputes

Commercial disputes can be costly, time-consuming and stressful. Minor disputes can escalate, damaging relationships or even threatening the survival of your business.

A long-term relationship with our dispute resolution lawyers can underpin your approach to avoiding disputes.

Business disputes

Disputes between businesses take many forms. Some can be determined by dialogue, but more serious disputes often need to be resolved with input from lawyers to guide clients about their resolution options, such as litigation, arbitration or mediation.

Our legal team will focus on your issues in a practical and realistic way and deliver user-friendly, concise advice about your options, accompanied by clear guidance about costs and risks.

Cost mitigating agreements

We enter into innovative cost mitigation agreements with our clients, including Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs) and insurance arrangements that provide fee-capping and adverse costs protection where appropriate.

Risk mitigation plans

We often work with accountants and other professionals to deliver risk mitigation plans associated with high stress ventures to pre-empt claims, where this is feasible, by making tactical offers.

We also work with contractual lawyers to formulate effective and binding dispute resolution policies for contracts.

Whether your success is survival, or the enhancement of your business, we are experienced in all aspects of litigation ranging from issues arising from commercial lending arrangements, shareholder disputes and fraud to debt recovery and insolvency issues. We will provide a strong and effective plan to resolve your commercial dispute, obtaining injunctions where necessary.
