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:
- Director and shareholder disputes
- Franchise disputes
- Lease extension disputes
- Trading disputes
- Director disqualification
- and claims
