Business disputes can be a daunting prospect and very harmful to a business if not resolved properly. Any disputes, but especially commercial disputes, take up time, resources, energy, and money, as well as interfering with the businesses ability to operate efficiently.
Having proper legal advice can help the dispute to be resolved in a cost-effective and timely manner while preventing any further damaging impact on your business.
Where court is not necessary to resolve the dispute, our team are experts in alternative dispute resolutions (ADR). Using ADR saves needless expenses, time and negative publicity about the business, as well as helping to salvage relationships. Our team includes accredited mediators, reflecting our specialist expertise.
We understand that court can be a daunting prospect. So, where it is necessary for you to attend court, we will provide close personal support to you throughout the process so you can achieve the best possible outcome.

Business disputes can be easily avoided when handled properly and with the assistance of a professional solicitor skilled in this area. We will listen to your view of the situation and take the time to clarify options to carefully sidestep the dispute before it escalates any further.
Disputes can often be promptly resolved early on without the need for matters to go any further. Our solicitors can help you do this by strategically planning what outcome you would like to receive, then creating a letter before action or taking part in a private negotiation to find an outcome both parties are happy with and that will prevent any further or future disputes.
Our team contains trained mediators who can neutrally facilitate negotiations between parties involved in business disputes. Partner Peter Cusick is a CEDR Accredited Mediator, and Partner Tim Russ is a mediator accredited by ADR Group, CEDR and the Law Society Civil and Commercial mediation panel.
As well as facilitating negotiations, our team have significant experience in assisting those wanting to settle their dispute using mediation instead of through court proceedings.
For those parties involved in a business dispute who have not been able to agree a resolution but do not want to pursue court proceedings, arbitration is an alternative choice. Unlike mediation, when an arbitrator makes a decision, it is legally binding. The arbitrator will establish the facts and listen to the arguments set out by each party, they will then review everything and make a final decision.
Adjudication is very similar to arbitration, where a neutral adjudicator will listen to the facts and arguments set out by each party and make a legally binding decision on what they heard. The key difference is that adjudication is for business disputes that are involved in the construction or engineering industry.
Our Senior Associate Alex Forster has specific skills in this area, having helped many clients with their construction and engineering business disputes.
In some instances, ADR is not appropriate, or it has been tried and not helped the parties involved to find a resolution to their business dispute. Where this is the case, court proceedings may be necessary. In such circumstances, clear and accurate legal advice is absolutely essential to ensure the case is well prepared for the best chance of success.
