Business Dispute Resolution & Litigation Lawyers Liverpool & London
Business Disputes are bad for business, but an unavoidable part of commercial life. Whilst most can be resolved privately between the parties involved, where that does not happen, then a dispute that ends up in court will be extremely disruptive and harmful to your business.
The court process makes heavy demands on a business owner’s time, and litigation carries its own risks, making a business dispute potentially expensive and time-consuming to resolve. In some cases, the nature of the dispute runs the risk of reputational damage to the business itself, or to its owners. That sort of risk needs to be eliminated before it becomes a threat.
Our business litigation team are dedicated to dispute resolution. A business dispute requires more than just the ability to identify and argue about the legal issues. It requires a commercial approach, that seeks to understand how your business works, evaluates merits and risks, and considers all viable options for resolution to enable your business to put the dispute behind it, and get back to work.
We have the expertise to assist in the following disputes:
- All forms of contracts
- Property disputes including boundaries and estoppel claims
- Shareholder/director disputes
- Partnership disputes
- Reputation management/defamation
- Residential and Commercial landlord and tenant
- Professional negligence
- Will disputes and Inheritance Act Claims
- Employment settlement agreements
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Where you have a business dispute that you are unable to resolve, our business litigation team will work with you to put you in control of the process, whether you are bringing or defending a claim. We will help you find commercial solutions to resolve your dispute, making full use of whatever form of alternative dispute resolution (‘ADR’) is likely to settle your dispute.
We will give you an honest view of the merits of your claim or defence, we will advise you on settlement options and explain any risks with your case, or the litigation process, that you need to be aware of. We will also provide you, at the outset, with clear advice about the costs you may incur for each stage of your case, and about whether you may be able to recover your legal costs from your opponent.
If settlement is not possible, then we will work with you to present your strongest case at court.
