Specialist advice on all forms of commercial dispute for public and private sector clients, covering a broad range of owner managed businesses, as well as blue chip and listed companies.
Commercial disputes affect virtually every kind of business or public authority at some time. Litigation can be costly and time-consuming, and serious cases can influence an organisation's ability to achieve its targets. Rapid, effective dispute resolution is therefore necessary to avoid any negative impact on performance.
Weightmans' Commercial Dispute Resolution team deals with a wide range of disputes affecting both private and public sectors. Our clients include large UK banks, leading insurers, local government departments, large companies and owner managed businesses.
We take a pragmatic approach and focus on the commercial realities of every situation. In particular, we recognise that, as a client, you are more interested in the result and financial implications of your particular case rather than the finer details of the legal issues involved.
Our expert lawyers have lengthy experience in contractual, company and partnership disputes, banking litigation, minority share actions, restraint of trade and anti-competition cases, all types of injunctions, commercial fraud and money laundering.
We also handle IP disputes, defamation proceedings and large debt recovery work, and we have particular strengths in insolvency, property litigation, financial services and technology-based disputes.
As a unit with our own business efficiency benchmarks, we operate management systems and conduct internal audits which ensure that all key actions are performed and all deadlines met. Our service throughout is based on providing consistently good quality, robust and commercial advice, communicated in plain English.
We offer very competitive rates with a wide range of funding options, including conditional fee agreements, hybrid funding options, capped and fixed fee packages and insurance-backed litigation options.
I'm very impressed with the firm. There is no nonsense and they are straight to the point and fast in their reply.
