Commercial Disputes

"The good lawyer is not the man who has an eye to every side and angle of contingency, and qualifies all his qualifications, but who throws himself on your part so heartily, that he can get you out of a scrape.”   

- Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


We deal with most types of commercial disputes, involving claims with values ranging from £25,000 to £3 million.  Examples include the following:

•  Debt, including insolvency proceedings
•  Landlord and Tenant (see Property Disputes)
•  Breach of contract
•  Breach of warranties
•  Shareholder disputes
•  Partnership disputes
•  Passing-off claims and other forms of unfair competition

We understand that litigation can be enormously costly and wasteful for both sides, not simply in terms of legal fees, but also in terms of the wasted time of directors and senior staff.  We operate in a commercial world where there is always a balance to be struck between chasing old money and making new money.

With this in mind, we are keen supporters of alternative forms of dispute resolution.  These include arbitration, mediation and expert resolution. 

Our wide experience of these types of claim makes us expert negotiators.  We are ideally placed to assist you in your settlement discussions.  Armed with a full and complete understanding of your legal position, and (perhaps more importantly) your tactical negotiating position, an early and favourable settlement can often be reached.  We repeatedly save our clients time, energy and cost in dealing with disputes.
