commercial litigation, Leicester and Leicestershire for litigation solicitor, dispute lawyer

Whether your commercial dispute is with someone you know, a fellow director, a family member, property developer or a third party company or organisation, we can help you to understand how the law affects your position and the options available to you to help resolve the matter.

Don't lose sleep over a matter that could be resolved:

Our experienced team of solicitors has a deep knowledge of the law and your commercial rights and obligations. This means that problems can often be sorted-out by adopting a professional and, if needed, a legal approach.

Don't leave commercial disagreements to fester:

  • Early intervention is the key if issues are not to be left to endure for months or even years.

  • Ambiguous contracts, agreements or poorly-drafted leases lead to misunderstandings.

  • Disputes with people or suppliers can quickly turn good relationships into sour ones - which may ultimately affect the performance of your business.

Take back control of the dispute:

What can seem to be a hopeless or totally frustrating situation, can often be remedied with calm and straightforward clarity of the underlying issues and then an agreed path for how to resolve them.

We can provide essential support, advice and guidance to deliver measures needed to progress a much-needed commercial resolution so you can get on with running your business.
