Can you help with contractual disputes?

Contractual disputes affect every business from time to time. That’s hardly surprising when you consider just how many contracts you are party to; from standard terms and conditions to distribution, delivery and even rental contracts.

However, the fact is that even the most straightforward contractual disputes can quickly spiral out of control and lead to business disruption, damaged relationships and even reputation damage.

That’s why our approach to contractual disputes is to take a strong commercial position at the outset. We focus on achieving speedy and amicable outcomes wherever possible, as opposed to simply seeking to ‘win’ a battle that may ultimately prove detrimental to your commercial objectives.

Many of the commercial contract disputes we get involved in include matters such as disputes over:

  • Contractual terms and conditions
  • Franchising rights
  • Sales, distribution and exclusivity agreements
  • Manufacturing contracts
  • Terms of services and remuneration
  • Unpaid invoices

In the first instance, our commercial focus often means that we’ll seek the best outcome for your business as amicably as possible, to achieve a mutually satisfactory outcome.

However, where negotiation or mediation is unsuccessful, we also have the expertise to take contractual disputes to trial where necessary.

How much does contractual litigation cost?

Every contractual dispute is different, which means there’s no set fee for helping you to resolve yours. However, we’ve the experience to assess every contract dispute at the outset and provide you with a reasonable idea of the potential costs.

At the same time, we’ll always work with you to explore all possible funding options. This may include a conditional fee agreement; also known as a No Win No Fee arrangement. Other options may include damages-based agreements, litigation insurance and any other sources of legal funding that you may be entitled to access.

However, you can rest assured that not only will we always strive to obtain an amicable settlement in the first instance, our experienced contract lawyers are always happy to discuss potential costs for all aspects of dispute resolution at the outset.
