Disputes are arguably an unavoidable part of business life, however well you protect your commercial interests. Handled badly, they can involve significant time and expense and result in irreconcilable damage to key relationships and even your business’ reputation.
But it does not have to be that way. Our expert solicitors can work proactively with you to identify and address risk within your business before an issue arises. If a dispute does occur, we will work closely with you to understand the issue, how you would like it handled and to achieve the best possible outcome.
While we are highly experienced in pursuing and defending commercial disputes through litigation, whether in the High Court or County Court or in the property tribunals, we recognise the demands that unresolved disputes can place on you and your organisation and will work to help you avoid the need for litigation where possible.
We can support you in negotiating with other involved parties and advise on alternative dispute resolution methods including arbitration, adjudication and mediation. Our solicitors will always provide clear and up to date information of the anticipated timescales and costs and carefully manage both aspects.
Our dedicated Dispute Resolution team is recommended in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500. We advise clients including UK subsidiaries, SMEs and owner-managed businesses, landowners and developers, charities and education providers.
We provide a comprehensive range of legal services to businesses and their owners or management teams, allowing you to manage both your commercial and private needs more efficiently and effectively using a single law firm.
As members of the international Law Firm Network , we can also advise overseas clients on doing business in the UK, including any contentious issues arising.
