Our dispute resolution solicitors have many years’ experience in unpicking commercial disagreements. From unfulfilled contracts to arguments over, we approach every client issue with expertise, clarity, and commitment to getting the best outcome.

Issuing proceedings at court isn’t always the answer. We’re experienced advocates and have represented clients in courts all over England and Wales and we know that it can be an unavoidably expensive and drawn-out way of resolving disputes.

We tailor our approach to your priorities, including trying to avoid court action wherever appropriate. We do this using our skills and experience in various alternative dispute resolution options, including correspondence, negotiation, mediation and arbitration.

These alternative approaches can be highly effective, delivering the right outcome for you, cost-effectively, while ensuring the matter is fully resolved so you can move on with confidence.

How we handle commercial disputes the right way for your business

Depending on the circumstances and your priorities, different approaches to resolving your dispute may be appropriate. We will take the time to understand your issues and concerns, then use one or more of the following methods to achieve the best available outcome for you.


Many disputes can be resolved with a carefully crafted solicitor’s letter, clearly setting out the terms of the dispute, your legal position, the outcome you are looking for and what further action you will take if the matter is not resolved.

Our team have the expertise to draft effective correspondence for you, making sure the contents reflect your business priorities and the right tone is taken to help preserve important relationships where this is a factor.

We can also take any necessary follow-up action, such as contacting the other party for a response and drafting any agreement you reach to resolve the matter.


Where there are more complex or contentious issues to resolve, we can support and represent you during negotiations, helping you to find a positive solution to your dispute.

Our team have strong skills in negotiation and can find creative, business-savvy answers that match your overall commercial goals while keeping things amicable wherever possible.

Commercial mediation

An increasingly popular option for resolving all sorts of business disputes, this involves a trained mediator acting as a neutral third party to help the two sides of a dispute towards agreeing a mutually acceptable outcome between themselves.

The two parties can meet with the mediator with or without the support of their own lawyers and the entire process is confidential and ‘without prejudice’. This means nothing that is said during mediation can be used in any subsequent proceedings if a solution cannot be agreed.

Commercial mediation is often one of the fastest and most cost-effective ways to resolve a business dispute. It also allows both parties to keep control over the final decision, rather than putting it into the hands of a third party.

Court proceedings

Where court proceedings are the best or only remaining option to resolve a business dispute, we can provide the skilled representation and diligent approach needed to ensure the case is presented in the most effective way.

With extensive experience in court action, we can guide you through the entire process, helping to minimise any disruption for your business and making it as straightforward and stress-free as we can.
