Our experienced commercial litigation solicitors provide clear and practical advice to our local authority clients regarding all dispute resolution issues.

While it is always preferable to avoid disputes and to safeguard your council from dispute claims, in some instances it is unavoidable and disputes will arise. If your council is facing a dispute, our specialist commercial litigation solicitors can advise on all aspects of commercial litigation from mediation to representation in court.

Our commercial litigation team works in partnership with our clients to settle disputes in a cost effective and timely manner, avoiding court proceedings where possible. Our mediators are experienced at exploring issues, facilitating negotiations and encouraging the parties in dispute to reach workable and successful outcomes.

We have a broad client base and work with many councils. Our commercial litigation team is able to advise in the context of the particular pressures and demands of your internal clients, and work with you to achieve the most appropriate outcome to your commercial dispute.
