Dispute Resolution

Ashfords' Commercial Litigation Team is recognised for its expertise, depth of resources and practical commercial approach and can help you find the most effective resolution to your dispute or issue.  As well as Court proceedings we are actively involved in all forms of alternative dispute resolution and have considerable experience of mediation and arbitration. Many local, national and international clients ranging from business start-ups to multi-national companies, major banks, public sector bodies, utility companies, schools and colleges benefit from our commercial approach to business disputes. 

We have strong international links, both through ADVOC (the international network of independent law firms, of which Ashfords was the founder member) and through links with foreign law firms and clients.
