Commercial Litigation

Part and parcel of running a business is the need to deal with disputes that arise, whether with suppliers, employees, contractual disputes, tendering or debt recovery, to mention just a few. Unfortunately, disputes can also arise between business partners, directors and shareholders. These disputes can be an unwelcome distraction from running your business, especially if you become involved in litigation.

Our commercial litigation team appreciate that running your business is your main priority and that you need pragmatic, commercially-minded advice aimed at resolving disputes in a timely and cost-effective way that matches your overall business goals.

We regularly support a wide range of businesses in a variety of sectors with all types of business disputes. Our commercial litigation solicitors will help you avoid court action if possible, aiming to resolve your disputes through negotiation, mediation and other non-confrontational methods where appropriate. However, we are also highly experienced in court action, so can effectively represent your best interests in whatever way the situation requires.

As members of the Law Society’s Lawyers for Your Business scheme, we offer:

  • A free 30-minute initial consultation, either face-to-face, by phone or email
  • To listen to your legal issues, clearly outline your options and provide a transparent estimate of the likely costs and timescale involved
  • A promise to respond to your inquiry within a maximum of 2 working days

Our commercial litigation solicitors

We offer a comprehensive commercial litigation service for businesses throughout Leicestershire and the wider East Midlands from our law offices in Loughborough and Leicester.

Employment disputes

Our employment law team can assist you with any type of employment dispute, including those related to dismissals, redundancy, grievances, discipline and contract issues. We can help you find fast, effective solutions that defend you legally while also protecting your reputation. This includes options such as creating settlement agreements, negotiation and early conciliation, and supporting you with employment tribunal proceedings where required.

Bankruptcy & insolvency

If you are facing insolvency or bankruptcy, or someone who owes you money has gone bankrupt or become insolvent, we can help to ensure your interests are protected and that you comply with all legal requirements. We can support and advise you with everything from winding up applications and director disqualifications, to Bankruptcy Restriction Orders and Income Payment Orders

Property & boundary disputes

Any disputes over your business premises, or a commercial property or development site you are planning to exploit commercially, can significantly impact on your ability to achieve your commercial objectives. We can help you find the best ways to quickly and cost-effectively resolve such issues, minimising any negative affect on your business.

Debt recovery

Where your business is owed a debt, it can harm your cash flow, causing you issues with meeting your own financial obligations or requiring you to use your cash reserves to cover the shortfall. Chasing debts can also be a significant distraction from running your business. Our debt recovery team can take these matters off your hands, quickly and effectively unlocking money you are owed and freeing you to focus on the day-to-day running of your business.
