Our premier specialism has always been business law. We appreciate that in a competitive marketplace, successful businesses are increasingly likely to encounter conflicts and disputes. Our commercial team offer a variety of services in connection to litigation, arbitration and alternative dispute resolution.

Our problem-solving and client-centred ethos dictates that we will always provide a realistic assessment of all foreseeable issues and the possible outcomes. We believe in developing straightforward and workable solutions that suit both the short and long term aims and aspirations of the business involved.

Amongst other things, disputes are often extremely distracting and need to be resolved in the quickest and most cost effective manner possible.  It’s for this reason we favour mediation and negotiations as a means for resolution before resorting to the Court.  That said, if a commercially sensible settlement cannot be reached, once litigation is inevitable, we will pursue such litigation robustly.
