Dispute Resolution for Businesses

Our highly experienced team handles a broad range of disputes for businesses of all shapes and sizes from owner-managed businesses, SMEs and much larger organisations to the individuals that run them. We act for directors, owner-managers, landlords and land owners, property developers, business individuals, entrepreneurs and corporates.

Our Dispute Resolution and Litigation team is expert at problem solving. Our highly experienced team helps individuals and all manner of businesses to deal with disputes that can arise for any number of reasons. We can assist with the disputes listed below and several other dispute types not listed.

There is no doubt that dealing with a dispute can be stressful, time-consuming and often expensive. Our aim is to minimise this for our clients. We approach cases with common sense and remove any jargon to ensure clients understand their options and achieve the best resolution as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. We are skilled negotiators and many disputes can be resolved quickly without the need to involve the court. However, we will never settle for less than the best result for you and your situation. If court proceedings are necessary, we will support you throughout and work tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved.

You might be facing a contract dispute, land or property dispute, tenancy disagreement, business debt, an ongoing business disagreement that just won't go away, or find yourself having to fight your corner with a fellow director in the partnership or family business. In all scenarios, we can provide an important external perspective and help you to maintain control of the situation, knowing the options open to you at every stage towards resolution.
