We will make sure that you understand the options available and we will work with you to decide on the best way forward to get your desired result and allow you to continue to focus on your business.
In the event that your dispute leads to formal mediation or litigation, we will apply our knowledge and experience to pursue your objective and seek to keep costs proportionate.
Business to business disputes
Disputes with suppliers, contractors, purchasers, customers, agents, distributors and others.
Shareholder disputes and partnership disputes
Early advice is essential as these matters tend to be complex and sensitive, especially in SMEs, partnerships and quasi partnerships. Our experience in this area adds considerable value to the dispute resolution process. We act in minority prejudice claims by shareholders.
Property and land
Commercial property disputes and issues over rights of way and other easements relating to commercial premises.
Debt recovery and credit control
Unpaid debts can cause serious problems for businesses, affecting cash flow, creating uncertainty and potentially preventing payment of staff or creditors. They can also harm the reputation of a business. Whether you have individual or multiple invoices our help to recover debts will allow you to focus on running your business.
Mediation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR)
The courts expect parties to mediate. We have over twenty years of experience in mediations and the Director leading the dispute resolution team is an accredited mediator. We can represent you in a mediation and advise in negotiation. You can also propose Keith Hardington as mediator in a dispute. For more details on mediation, click here
