The main aim of commercial litigation and dispute resolution is to resolve the dispute through the Court system or via alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, such as mediation or arbitration.

Commercial litigation can be complex, time consuming and often involves large amounts of money and intricate legal arguments. Many businesses employ specialised litigation lawyers, dispute resolution teams, or or law firms to represent them in commercial litigation cases.

Commercial disputes

Commercial disputes are conflicts that arise between businesses or individuals during the day to day running of their business activities. These disputes can include breach of contract, partnership, intellectual property, professional negligence, real estate, product liability, and securities disputes. Resolving these disputes may require the assistance of legal professionals or other experts.

Commercial litigation is the legal process that arises from such disputes and is initiated by filing a commercial lawsuit in court. It can involve various issues such as partnership disputes, contractual disputes, property disputes, and other business disagreements.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is often preferred before taking a case to court, as it can be time-consuming, expensive, and stressful for all involved.

Expertise in commercial litigation is essential to understand and manage risks to businesses and to resolve disputes effectively.

How to resolve a commercial dispute

When dealing with a commercial dispute, parties should attempt to resolve the issue directly, or make use of their complaints procedures. If this doesn’t lead to a satisfactory outcome, it can be helpful to consult a team of commercial litigation solicitors.

Your solicitor will assess your case and advise on the likelihood of success. They will typically attempt to negotiate an out-of-court agreement with the other party.

If this is unsuccessful, they may recommend alternative dispute resolution, such as negotiating, mediating or arbitration. If alternative dispute resolution fails, the case is likely to proceed to court proceedings for a judge to make a decision. If the parties disagree with this decision, they may choose to appeal to the Court of Appeal.
