Business Litigation


Business litigation is broad in its remit and can generally be described as any type of dispute within the business world.  The dispute may occur in the UK or as is becoming more and more common, it may occur in a foreign jurisdiction.  Common examples of business litigation are disputes relating to contractual claims, recovering unpaid debt, personal injury and negligence.  Business litigation is most often instigated when a party is liable for a breach under a business contract and is denying liability.

Business litigation law can be very complex and should you find yourself involved in a commercial dispute, it is essential that legal advice is sought at the earliest possible opportunity.  Business litigation law firms have revealed from proven experience that addressing and managing commercial disputes earlier reduces escalation of the dispute and you stand a greater chance of reaching a sensible, satisfactory and commercial resolution.  Within business litigation, there are various mechanisms available to secure an early resolution.   Alternative dispute resolution such as negotiation, mediation and arbitration and are often preferable to full blown business litigation.

If a resolution proves impossible and court proceedings become necessary, business litigation law firms will have lawyers with experience in advancing such disputes to the High Court, County Court and specialist tribunals.  Business litigation law firms are not merely concerned with the letter of the law.  They have lawyers with expertise in the very industry to which your claim relates.  In this way, they can strike to the heart of your dispute, fully understand your objectives and argue the merits of your dispute.  Business litigation can overlap onto various other areas of law such as tax, employment, intellectual property and competition law.  Such lawyers have the expertise to advise also on these areas.
