Commercial Disputes

Helping clients to minimise disruption by finding the most effective way to resolve disputes.

We regularly advise across a whole array of commercial disputes, helping our clients to find the most effective route to resolving the disputes that inevitably arise during the course of running and growing a business. We can provide strategic advice to limit the risk of a dispute and will help to quantify and manage risk when disputes arise. At all times, we will provide solutions driven advice whether you are bringing or defending a claim.

Disputes can be stressful, distracting and time-consuming. They can also use up valuable financial resources, affect commercial relationships and impact reputation. We therefore actively work with our clients on litigation avoidance strategies assessing and considering risks before steps are taken. We look for the best courses of action, using mediation or other dispute resolution methods where appropriate. When needed, we are experienced litigators and can help you to achieve resolution through the courts.

Our philosophy is to place ourselves between our client and the problem and to never lose sight of the fundamental issue in each case - the commercial outcome that our client needs to achieve - that directs everything we do, and how we do it.

We work with local, national and international clients, and from business start-up and individuals to multi-nationals, institutional investors, major banks and public sector bodies.  Our disputes lawyers have the scope and flexibility to provide specific resourcing for clients including placement of teams to work alongside in-house teams on short and medium term projects and litigation.

We have extensive experience working with clients in areas including energy and resource management, marine, investment and finance, franchising, distribution and agriculture. We also have specialist expertise in relation to construction disputes and disputes between employers and employees.
