Commercial Dispute Resolution

Disputes can be a drain on resources, costing money and diverting resources away from your business goals.

We understand that minimising risk and achieving commercially sensible solutions is key to resolving commercial disputes. Our Commercial Dispute Resolution Department, headed up by partner Jonathan Wheeler, is made up of lawyers who are experts in their chosen fields. But we understand that legal expertise is only part of the dispute resolution process. Equally important are an understanding of the commercial reality of a dispute and the ability to find creative solutions. This often involves working with other departments in the firm, including Corporate & Business Services, Insolvency and Commercial Property, to provide a seamless service.

In every matter we handle, we carry out an initial risk assessment and work with our clients to achieve the best possible outcome at the earliest stage based on an agreed strategy. This does not always mean litigation; we spend a lot of our time in early stage dispute avoidance, helping clients nip problems in the bud and salvage difficult business relationships.

As well as being tough litigators where this is required, our lawyers are experienced negotiators who are well versed in Alternative Dispute Resolution procedures, including mediation.

We understand that dispute resolution represents an unwelcome cost to our clients. We offer a flexible approach to funding, including conditional, capped and fixed fee agreements where appropriate; and where appropriate we always explore in detail the options available for “after the event” insurance in order to minimise risk where litigation is unavoidable.

Our commercial disputes expertise includes the following:-

  • Contract and commercial disputes (including search and seizure and freezing orders)
  • Property disputes
  • Professional negligence
  • Intellectual property
  • Defamation
  • Debt recovery
