Can commercial litigation help my business?

While disputes within your business - or with your clients and suppliers – are always unwelcome, the fact is they're bound to arise from time to time.

It should go without saying that entering litigation should always be a last resort. That’s why our experienced commercial lawyers will almost always try to help you resolve disputes amicably through discussion or mediation in the first instance. After all, you’re in the business of making money, and legal action will often prove to be an unwelcome and expensive distraction from that objective.

Whatever your dispute involves, we’re here to help you obtain a desirable outcome as quickly as possible, with the minimum of fuss. Typical cases that can be solved by effective dispute resolution techniques include disputes:

  • between business partners
  • with suppliers
  • with employees
  • with clients
  • with shareholders

In many of these situations, our commercial dispute solicitors will be able to resolve the situation through skilful mediation and a pragmatic, commercially astute approach.

Having said all of this, there are some cases that will only ever be resolved by litigation. When those situations arise, you can rest assured that our commercial litigation team has all the expertise you need, in all of these areas:

How much does commercial litigation cost?

We appreciate that very few SMEs have a budget for legal costs. You can rest assured that we’ll always do everything possible to manage the costs as effectively and transparently as possible.

Just as importantly, we’ll work with you to explore the full range of possible funding options from the outset. They may include conditional fee agreements – also known as No Win No fee arrangements – as well as damages-based agreements, litigation insurance, fixed fees and any other legal funding that you may be able to access.

However, in the first instance, it may help you to discuss your case with an experienced commercial litigator, who’ll be able to advise you on the potential costs. To find out more, call 0161 830 9632 or contact us now and we’ll call you.
