Commercial Dispute Resolution

On a daily occurrence, most transactions both in our business or personal life involve some type of contract. From purchasing goods or services to corporate acquisitions, each requires its own contract and an opportunity to go wrong.

The cost of this error could result in a business missing out on revenue or attending costly court proceedings. Both could mean the success or failure of a business. 

We work to ensure clients who are involved in any commercial and contractual disputes, reach the best possible resolution. Whether you have an intellectual property dispute with another company or want to understand how our legal services can help. Speak to one of our expert legal advisors today.

Ensuring that the dispute is managed effectively is vital.

During a commercial or contractual dispute lies ample opportunity for both sides to fall out. It can have massive implications for both parties reputation and business. If the conflict is managed correctly within the resolution process, there can lie various opportunities to strengthen relationships.

Commercial Fraud

When working to create or maintain a successful business, fraud is perhaps one of your last considerations. Unfortunately, commercial fraud is a reality for numerous organisations. It can involve employees in a position of trust or the theft of a company’s information. The perpetrators and situations vary in extremes, yet the damage to reputation or revenue is often severe. 

Our specialist can leverage legal avenues to recover any losses inflicted. We can work with the court to freeze the culprit’s assets and identify and seize key bank accounts. The impact of fraud can also cause buyers or partners to lose trust in your business practices. We can also set your business on a road path to recovery, which will reaffirm your businesses position in the market.

Our team has recovered assets for large organisations to smaller SMEs. We have recovered capital worth hundreds of thousand to multi-million-pound cases. So no matter your query contact our team today to see how we can help you.

Partnership Agreement disputes

Going into business with a partner is an exciting time for both parties. The excitement that opportunity brings can overshadow elements to the agreement that often results in conflict in the future. This is as they are missed or not clearly explained from the outset.

If a client wishes to dissolve a partnership, we offer advice and assistance in the preparation of dissolution agreements. We can also act effectively in the mediation of disputes.
