Business disputes

Business disputes are a regrettable but common feature of commercial dealings, often involving companies, partners, directors, and shareholders. They can be incredibly time consuming and stressful for those involved. We routinely work with clients involved in business disputes by assisting them to navigate to a resolution that is practically and strategically sound and where that is not possible, assisting them with Court proceedings.

How we can assist with business disputes 

We provide practical advice and create litigation strategies that enable you to realistically determine your chances of success and calculate outcomes. Our objective is always to help you avoid disputes and costly court cases. Before launching into the litigation process, we’ll apply our mediation and negotiation skills to try and secure an early, cost effective resolution.

Business disputes are a fact of commercial life. The priority of many when dealing with a dispute is to find a practical solution to the dispute. Business disputes can demand great attention from business owners, which attention is better placed on running the business – not fighting. We can handle all facets of business disputes, from minor cases and small debt collections to major litigation and ‘bet the farm’ court cases. Our team can help you develop an effective strategy to manage all the moving parts of your legal situation and provide you with support every step of the way. We have decades of experience in helping individuals and businesses address an incredibly wide range of issues and can help you resolve your dispute in an efficient manner.

For most legal issues, there are strict time limits for you to pursue a claim. As with any type of commercial business dispute, it’s in your best interests to get independent legal advice as soon as possible so you know exactly where you stand.
