Why Commercial Dispute Resolution is so Important to Businesses

Quite sensibly, most managers, directors and business owners seek to avoid commercial conflict where possible as litigation can be expensive, time consuming and place an added risk to the success of the business.  However, invariably litigation is a persistent element of commerce as businesses seek to protect their position or recover what may be due to them.

That said, the way litigation is conducted is changing and at Edward Hands & Lewis we anticipated and have embraced the changes to offer a firm but flexible approach to the resolution of commercial disputes.

Whilst we advise our clients, prepare for and appear at court on a daily basis, the court forum should generally be the last option to resolve a dispute and only be engaged when all other suitable options are exhausted or ruled out.

Many of our clients’ disputes are resolved by alternative dispute resolution techniques like mediation, adjudication and without prejudice meetings between the parties.  We are proud of the tactical awareness our lawyers employ in correspondence and discussions with your opponent and we use the court’s own rules of engagement as a tool for achieving our clients goals.

If court proceedings are issued, or to be opposed, we relish the court forum and enjoy the challenge of working with you, tailoring our approach, aggression and application of the court rules to achieve the outcome you seek for your business.

We provide a no cost consultation on all areas of commercial litigation, including but not exhaustively:

  • Breach of contract claims;
  • Retention of title disputes;
  • Shareholder disputes;
  • Intellectual Property Infringement (trade marks, registered design, copyright, breach of confidentiality, unregistered design rights);
  • Commercial Agents disputes;
  • Professional Negligence;
  • Partnership disputes;
  • Injunctions;
  • Advocacy;
  • Dispute Resolution in the County Court / High Court
