Commercial Disputes

Our commercial litigation team aims to protect and defend your business no matter the case.

Whether your business is faced with a conflict, a financial mis-selling claim, a shareholder dispute, a partnership dispute, a professional negligence claim or perhaps a claim for defamation; our expert commercial lawyers rely on their extensive experience of conflict resolution to seek our solutions

We are on hand to assist at any stage: whether you involve us early to mitigate the risk of a conflict arising, are considering your options to commence litigation or are in the midst of a dispute. Our team works closely with colleagues in other departments when required, drawing on the firm’s breadth of expertise and ensuring that you receive a clear direction on how to proceed.

As well as our extensive litigation experience, we also advise on alternative forms of dispute resolution (ADR) such as arbitration and mediation. In many cases it can be a more cost effective approach to your dispute and is particularly advantageous where confidentiality or preserving business relations are key considerations.

In today’s business environment, commercial disputes are often multi-jurisdictional and we are experienced at dealing with disputes with an international element. Where necessary to tackle any cross border elements we can call upon our strong network of international legal contacts to guarantee you the best overseas representation. We work closely with our international partner firms to ensure that the output is well co-ordinated and that you have a single point of contact.

We regularly work with or  on behalf of our clients’ insurers. We aim to be flexible on our fee arrangements and are willing, in certain cases, to offer a ‘no win-no fee’ arrangement. We can also arrange litigation costs insurance.
