Commercial Contract Disputes
Contracts form the basic foundation of most commercial relationships. They also give rise to a wide array of legal obligations and ensure that proper redress available when things go wrong.
Disputes and disagreements over commercial contracts will inevitably arise because of the sheer volume of change and complexity of doing business in today’s competitive environment. When disputes do arise you need to understand your rights, obligations, risks and remedies under the commercial contract.
Disputes can arise over contracts in a broad range of areas including: between a customer, supplier, agent, distributor, contractor, sub-contractor, lender, investor, mortgagee, shareholder, joint venture partner, partner, buyer, seller, guarantor, employee, licensee, licensor, developer, landlord, tenant, sub-tenant, project manager, outsourced service, or professional.
Litigation and the resolution of disputes are at the heart of what we do. On contentious issues, we get under the skin of situations to reduce the risks we see and equip you with strategies and tools to tackle them efficiently, effectively and confidently.
Whether you are involved in large complex litigation, or simply a breakdown of a commercial and business relationship, our team of litigators have strength drawn from years of experience, who use practical tactics to support you with a pragmatic and results orientated approach.
We advise on a range of commercial contract legal issues ranging from large corporations, SMEs, regulatory bodies, public sector organisations to private clients. This includes dealing with contractual disputes and resolving these through all available avenues of dispute resolution.
The resolution of any dispute needs a commercial mindset at the core. It creates a distraction to a client’s business day to day life. We recognise the importance of working to tight deadlines and budgets. We take a commercially-minded approach by explaining any financial and personal investment required, along with the possible outcomes, to ensure these are understood.
We carry out an analysis of the facts then we formulate a strategy. For a dispute that requires litigation we build a team to fight and we fight to win. For disputes which require a more tactical and nuanced approach, we assemble a team with experience in a range of alternative means of resolving disputes including mediation. Whatever the disagreement we recognise the need to build a solution to fit needs of our client, whether they are a large corporate or a small enterprise.
We also offer a service to help you identify risks and strengthen your contractual position by reviewing your contracts before any dispute occurs to help mitigate against the likelihood of problems in the future.
We can also conduct commercial litigation and dispute resolution at competitive rates. Depending on the case, we can offer Conditional Fee Arrangements (CFAs) and third party Litigation Funding.
