Our Dispute Resolution Knowledge Can Help You

No one likes disputes. At best, they are a worrying distraction and at worst they can be extremely disruptive and costly.

When a commercial dispute seems unavoidable, it is best to seek the expert advice of one of our solicitors before positions become entrenched and relationships break down completely.

It is generally preferable to resolve disputes without going to court.

Court cases can be costly, stressful, and time-consuming. Our objective, however, is to settle the case before it gets to that stage. We do this through negotiation or some form of Alternative Dispute Resolution, such as mediation.

We aim to resolve your dispute by pursuing the most cost-effective and satisfactory solution that lets you get back to doing business.

    Dispute Resolution Solicitors Working For You

    dispute resolution home imagery

    We cover the entire spectrum of Dispute Resolution services, giving you options no matter what your situation. Some of the areas we cover are:

    Contractual disputes

    Contracts are a daily part of life. They are entered into as second nature in all aspects of your daily routine, from purchasing your coffee or buying a train ticket to purchasing commercial goods or services. Usually, these transactions are completed without a hitch, but in the event that you do encounter a problem, our team is on hand to advise on the best way to resolve the issue as quickly and cost effectively as possible.

    Construction disputes, including adjudication

    Disputes in the construction world are often unavoidable – missed deadlines, faulty work, and delays in work progression can all give rise to disputes. We can provide tailored advice to all areas of the construction sector to assist with these issues, endeavouring to get the best outcome through a multitude of methods, be it court proceedings, adjudication or mediation.

    Dilapidations claims

    When your commercial lease comes to an end, there will usually be a provision requiring the tenant to get the property back to the condition it was in at the beginning of the tenancy and carry out remedial works to that end. Where the parties can’t agree on what work needs to be carried out, and working in tandem with your surveyor, we can assist in applying to the court to resolve the dispute whilst working in conjunction with your surveyor.

    Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 lease renewal proceedings

    Certain commercial tenancies automatically entitle you to a further lease when the initial term comes to an end. If the parties are unable to agree terms between themselves, it is sometimes necessary to apply to the court to determine what the terms of that new lease should be. We can advise on and assist with those proceedings.

    Partnership disputes

    Our team has experience helping to resolve partnership disputes. If left unmanaged, these types of disputes can lead to serious disruption in the daily running of your business and even jeopardise its existence.

    Director and shareholder/company disputes

    Disputes between directors, or between directors and shareholders, can paralyse and even destroy companies – especially in family-owned businesses and SMEs. We can advise on the best way to try to resolve such disputes quickly and to minimise the scope for long-term damage to the business. We can also advise minority shareholders on what action they can take if they believe that the way in which the company is being run is unfairly prejudicing them.

    “Soft” intellectual property – copyright disputes, passing off, misuse of confidential information

    We can advise on a variety of intellectual property disputes, including claims of “passing off” – where a competitor is using a confusingly similar name or imagery to take advantage of established goodwill generated by your business. We can also advise on claims where someone – a former employee, for instance – is seeking to use confidential information belonging to you which would cause loss.

    Unfortunately, we are unable to advise on intellectual property disputes involving patents or trademarks.

    Commercial landlord and tenant – forfeiture, breach of covenant claims, recovery of rent arrears

    We can advise on a broad range of property disputes for both landlords and tenants including forfeiture, breach of covenant claims, and recovery of rent arrears. Our team offers tailored advice to ensure that the best solution and outcome is reached.

    Debt collection

    Our experienced team can assist in debt recovery should you encounter any payment problems, and in taking court action to recover monies owed to your business when customers can’t or won’t pay.
