BusinessDispute Resolution

Resolving a dispute quickly and cost effectively will minimise the impact of the dispute on your business. Our experienced team will fight your corner for you so that you can focus on your business. We will take the time to understand your business objectives before providing you with clear and concise advice tailored to your needs.

With one of the strongest dispute resolution teams in the area we have experience of resolving disputes about:

  • Contracts

  • Partnerships
  • Directors and shareholders
  • Property
  • Landlord and tenant
  • Debt recovery
  • Intellectual property

Choosing the right route

Alongside the traditional method of court proceedings, you may want to consider alternative dispute resolution (ADR). This includes mediation, arbitration and adjudication and could be a quicker and cheaper way to resolve the dispute. We will talk you through the options and advise you on which route is best suited to your objectives.

Managing costs

Your control of legal costs during a dispute is important so we have a flexible approach to our fees. Each case is considered on an individual basis and we will discuss with you the most cost effective approach for your needs. The options include:

  • Hourly rates – linked directly to the experience of each solicitor. You may prefer this option as you will only pay for any work that is carried out.
  • Fixed fees – this option provides you with certainty of cost from the outset and can cover either the whole dispute or predefined stages.

No matter which option you choose, our specialist team will provide you with clear and practical advice throughout to minimise any damage to your business.
