Resolving contract disputes for your business

The business world depends on spoken and written promises. When these contracts are broken, the fallout can create all sorts of commercial problems, costs and legal complications.

Commercial contracts are entered into every day, committing businesses to doing the things they say they’ll do. It’s often to deliver or receive a service or product or to settle a debt, but it might be something less tangible like agreeing not to disclose information.

When terms are breached, the law offers protection in the form of commercial contract claims. Businesses can be forced to fulfil their obligations under the contract or to remedy the breach by paying compensation to the other side, for instance.

When there’s a dispute about whether a term has been breached or not, or what that term was to begin with, things can get complicated. Businesses will need evidence to back up their claim or defence and they’ll need a thorough understanding of their risks, the law and the process.

That’s where our commercial disputes lawyers come in. They advise claimants and defendants on their best case and on the action they should take.
