Commercial Contractual Disputes
Running a successful business includes keeping to contractual commitments and delivering goods and services on time and in accordance with specification. Where a business is in a supply chain, it can find itself in difficulty through breach of contract by another party.
We can support your business whether it is claiming or defending a claim for breach of contract. Our team is experienced in resolving contractual disputes with commercial sense, avoiding court proceedings whenever possible.
Our specialist team of Litigators understands that adhering to deadlines and delivering goods and services promised to customers is paramount to the reputation and financial well-being of your business.
What we can do for you:
- Examine the contract your business has made and inform you of the legal position.
- Advise you on what remedies are available if your business has suffered a breach of contract, or possible defences to a breach of contract claim made against your business.
- Assist in resolving the dispute either through negotiation or, if necessary, through court action.
Partnership disputes can have a devastating impact on your business, as well as personally, and can ultimately end with the Partnership dissolving. Seeking early legal advice and representation may assist in resolving difficulties between business partners.
We can help you to resolve Partnership disputes effectively, with minimum disruption to your business’s day-to-day workings. We can help with the following issues:
- Determining how your Partnership stands legally
- Partnership dissolution or retirement of a Partner
- Drafting new partnership agreements to meet your business’s objectives
Our team will recommend alternative dispute resolution methods where possible, as court proceedings often cause unnecessary strain on your business relationships and finance. Where court proceedings are essential, our team is able to represent you and provide support throughout the process.
Professional Negligence Claims
