Commercial Disputes

Commercial disputes in The High Court rose by 44% in 2012. Litigation between companies is becoming increasingly commonplace. If you need to protect your commercial interests in or out of court – we can help.

Our litigation lawyers have broad skills and in-depth specialist knowledge of industry sectors – working on diverse, and often complex, cases.

We fight hard to get the best results for our clients. We are strong negotiators and in many situations we can help our clients avoid Court proceedings – using alternative dispute resolution methods, such as adjudication or mediation to get matters settled.

We help to protect our clients’ commercial interests decisively and cost-effectively. Cost benefit, proportionality and understanding the outcome desired by our clients is at the heart of how we operate.
