Navigating you through conflict.

When it comes to commercial relationships, it is inevitable that disagreements will occur from time to time, even when you own or are responsible for the running of a well operating, cohesive business. Disputes are inherently stressful and it is vital to resolve them swiftly and effectively so you can get back to focusing on the core day-to-day activities required for commercial success. To support you in navigating these conflicts, you should work with a legal team with the expertise to provide you with innovative strategies which fulfil your objectives and align with your business interests.  

Our Commercial disputes team advises organisations across a wide variety of industries on the full range of commercial disputes. We work with you closely, becoming experts in your industry and gaining a full awareness of the intricacies of your business and its activities. We will then use this knowledge to provide you with carefully tailored, dynamic solutions which fit into your wider commercial strategy and deliver results.

We pride ourselves on being a team of creative strategists with the expertise to undertake extremely high value and complex claims, which often involve an international element, in a proactive and cost effective manner.

Crucially we have strong relationships with litigation funders, an important new facet of the litigation landscape. This puts us in the unique position where, once we have helped clients find the right funding, we can move forward in tandem with the funders to achieve the best possible outcome for your business.

We advise on:

  • Breach of contract
  • Company disputes including M&A and warranty claims
  • Partnership disputes and Shareholder/Boardroom disputes
  • Disputes arising from breach of directors’ duties
  • Agency disputes
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Civil fraud
  • Trade disputes
  • Product liability disputes
