Commercial Dispute Resolution

Commercial relationships play a crucial role in determining success in today’s competitive marketplace. As a result, businesses operating across market sectors regularly enter into contractual agreements with commercial partners. 

When these relationships break down, businesses may often find themselves involved in a commercial dispute that requires a prompt resolution. Commercial disputes may relate to:

  • Breach of trust

  • Breach of contract

  • Insolvency and bankruptcy

  • Commercial fraud

  • Construction disputes

If you’re faced with a commercial dispute, it’s important to take action sooner than later. Our legal team can help identify the best course of action for you, so feel free to get in touch.

Tenancy Disputes

In some cases, disagreements relating to a tenancy may lead to a dispute. Whether the property in question is residential or commercial, conflicts between landlords and tenants have become all too common. Issues that may lead to a tenancy dispute include:

  • Rent arrears
  • Breach of covenant
  • Disputes regarding the renewal of a lease
  • Possession claims
  • Disputes relating to service charges
  • Dilapidation claims, for example as a result of damage to the property
