Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation Proceedings

Running a business is rife with a whole range of difficulties and challenges including cash flow, short and long-term debt, contractual matters, data protection and GDPR, recruitment and employment, and political and regulatory uncertainty.
It is therefore unsurprising that disputes can quickly arise between businesses and various stakeholders including suppliers, customers, partners, shareholders, directors, and employees.

Whatever the concerns facing your business, our highly experienced business litigation solicitors can assist you at every stage, from early assessment of the particulars of your case, to drafting contracts, to legal claims and other court documents, to providing robust representation at any court proceedings.

We understand that the stresses of commercial disputes are an unwelcome distraction to the running of your business and can even threaten its operation altogether. We will act without delay to resolve your matter as efficiently, privately, and cost-effectively as possible, seeking a positive outcome in line with your overall business strategy, and defending your reputation every step of the way.

Our commercial litigation solicitors excel in using methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution to help clients resolve disputes without having to incur the time, costs, and stress of court proceedings. However, we’re also highly knowledgeable in the Civil Procedure Rules, which govern the civil law process. We will ensure the entirety of your case is conducted in line with the relevant Pre-Action Protocol so, if it does become necessary to attend court, you will be in the strongest possible position from the outset.
