How we resolve company disputes
When dealing with a company dispute, you need a solution that protects your business interests and matches your long-term goals. Most businesses also want to avoid conflict and preserve positive relationships with other companies where possible.
Our goal is to help you resolve your company dispute in a way that matches both of those important objectives. We therefore favour a non-confrontational approach wherever possible as this can usually allow us to achieve an amicable solution that works for you, saving you time, money and stress.
Letter before action
Many company disputes can be resolved with a well-drafted letter from our solicitors that clearly sets out your legal position and the actions you are willing to take to resolve the dispute or take the matter further if the dispute cannot be resolved.
We will listen to your concerns and goals, then draft a letter that gives you the best chance of an early resolution. Our team can also review a letter before action you have received and advise you on your options, including whether any suggested resolution offers a fair deal for your business.
Our solicitors can act for you during private negotiations with the other party and their legal representatives. We can advise you on offering a settlement or reviewing any settlement terms offered by the other party. With our legal expertise and negotiation skills, it is often possible to agree a fast resolution that is cost-effective and protects your business interests.
Mediation can be very effective for dealing with a wide range of business disputes. The process involves you and the other party to the dispute meeting with a trained, neutral mediator who will guide you through discussing the points of conflict. The goal is for you to agree an amicable solution and avoid the need for court proceedings.
Key benefits of commercial mediation for company disputes are that it is usually much faster than court proceedings, involves lower legal costs, allows you to maintain or repair your relationship with the other party in the dispute, and keeps the matter private.
Where court proceedings are required, our commercial litigation team will be with you every step of the way. We will provide clear guidance on what to expect at each stage of proceedings, prepare your case effectively with no detail overlooked, and ensure you have the best possible representation in court.
