Commercial litigation and disputes

Dispute resolution solicitors for business

Commercial disputes are becoming increasingly common but for a business they can be a real headache, potentially costly and inevitably time consuming. If you find yourself caught up in a dispute, it’s vital you have the right legal expertise on your side, to minimise the impact on you and your business.

At Clarke Willmott, we have considerable experience in resolving disputes across a wide range of industries and sectors – and truly understand the challenges and commercial implications of such actions on a business. We also know the importance of reaching a positive outcome as swiftly as possible.

Whether you need to bring a claim or defend a commercial dispute, our specialist commercial litigation team will provide you with expert advice and guidance, however tough, challenging or complex the situation.

How our commercial litigation solicitors can help

Who we can help and how

The Clarke Willmott commercial litigation team fights hard on behalf of private sector businesses, sole traders, family businesses, public sector bodies and charitable organisations faced with a potentially damaging dispute.

Our approach to dispute resolution is measured, pragmatic and tenacious when called for. It relies on strong team work and careful preparation to devise the best strategy and implement it cost-effectively and efficiently. As a case progresses, we are fully prepared to adapt and respond swiftly without losing focus on the desired outcome.

Protecting our clients’ best interests, reputation and bottom line is always our top priority. And we’ll always aim to save valuable time, money and stress by diffusing any dispute at the earliest opportunity, settling outside of the courts wherever possible through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) such as negotiation, mediation and arbitration.
