Commercial Litigation

We have an experienced litigation department that has a record of resolving large and small commercial disputes. The team’s aim is to secure a realistic and practical solution for our clients and to achieve it efficiently and with cost-effective controls.

From a clear-sighted assessment of the situation we give strategic and practical advice to improve the prospects of bringing the dispute to a successful conclusion for our client. Always mindful of the impact that litigation has on a client’s time, the business and the associated costs we endeavour to resolve cases early through alternative dispute resolution; mediation or arbitration. If, however, a case cannot be settled our solicitors will take it to Court.

The expert knowledge of professionals across a broad range of industries and research sectors is regularly sought to support our evidence and arguments and we have established firm relationships with a number of leading professional firms.
