Commercial Litigation 3C

Commercial Litigation

We understand that there are certain things you want from your solicitor – a confidence that we’re capable of fighting your corner but also that we’ll do it cost effectively and with minimum impact on your business. This is always at the front of our minds when resolving disputes.

We’ll consider alternatives to court, and if these aren’t an option we’ll use our skills to resolve problems constructively. Each case is unique, and we treat it that way, tailoring our decisions to get the right results for your business. We now have a much bigger range of funding options than ever before, allowing you to reach a solution as inexpensively as you can.

  • Commercial agents’ or distributors’ disputes
  • Competition law
  • Construction disputes
  • Contract disputes, including debt recovery
  • Corporate disputes, including director / shareholder / partnership disputes and claims arising out of the sale or purchase of a business
  • Defamation
