Dispute Resolution for Your Business

A business dispute can be a big distraction and can cause knock on consequences beyond your control, such as a supplier failing to deliver materials meaning you are unable to fulfil your obligations to your customers. Getting professional help with commercial dispute resolution can make all the difference for your business. Our business dispute solicitors can advise you about your position and the different routes to resolution, including commercial litigation and business mediation.

How to resolve a business dispute

Business dispute resolution may be in the form of commercial litigation – meaning formal legal action – but often it can be through negotiations and methods such as business mediation. Getting early professional advice can help to resolve commercial disputes sooner and avoid lengthy and often costly litigation. 

Our business dispute solicitors will work with your business to resolve the issue. We can offer reviews of paperwork to provide advice on the best ways forward and can become involved in the negotiations should our assistance be required.

Most disputes can be rectified at an early stage if parties are willing to invest the time to reach an agreement – this is not always the case but gaining knowledge early is often the key in commercial dispute resolution.

Thank you very much for the very good written and verbal advice that you gave when I was preparing to represent myself at a tribunal in relation to a long-standing legal issue.
