Commercial Litigation

Dealing with a dispute, be it small or large, can be a particularly stressful experience, especially if you are unsure about the costs and procedures involved.

Wherever possible, we always seek to settle disputes by negotiation. In many cases, disputes can be resolved by using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as mediation and arbitration. These procedures tend to be more informal and less adversarial, as well as less costly than going to Court.

There are occasions, however, when court action is necessary and our experienced team will provide a robust and efficient presentation of your case in order to gain the best possible result.

The team have a reputation for providing a high quality and professional service with regular communication to ensure you are kept informed about the progress of your case.


Commercial litigation is a broad term which is used as a “catch all” for any disputes that may arise in a business context. Our team will initially provide you with honest advice as to the likelihood of successfully bringing or defending any court action to ensure that you do not waste any money in bringing an action which is not likely to succeed. We will also evaluate the prospects of ADR so that if appropriate, your case can be concluded at the earliest stage possible without the need to being formal proceedings. If that is not possible, we have the requisite experience and resources to take your matter through to trial.
