Our approach to commercial dispute resolution
We understand that most businesses would prefer to avoid the cost, time and conflict associated with court proceedings wherever possible. For this reason, we always attempt to resolve disputes through out-of-court settlements wherever possible.
Our team have strong expertise in using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) for a wide range of business disputes, with our experience and skills meaning we can typically resolve even the most complex and contentious disputes outside of a court.
By using methods such as negotiation and commercial mediation, we can help you achieve a result that protects your interests while saving you time, money and stress. We always tailor our approach to your broader needs and ADR can be very effective where there is a need to preserve a working relationship with the party you are in dispute with.
Another key advantage of settling out of court is that it allows you to keep the details of your dispute private, whereas court proceedings are held in public.
However, while an out-of-court settlement is often the preferable approach, we recognise that not all disputes can be resolved in this way. Fortunately, our team also has strong experience with pursuing commercial litigation through the courts, so can provide clear guidance and effective representation whichever approach is required to get the right result for you.
Our commercial litigation fees
We understand that cost is often an important deciding factor considering how to deal with a business dispute. Our goal is to be clear and transparent with our pricing, so you can make an informed choice about how to move forward.
We are able to offer some of our dispute resolution services on a fixed fee basis, for example, for sending a letter before action in straightforward disputes. Other services are offered according to an hourly rate, which we will agree with you before any work is carried out.
