Dispute Resolution Solicitors

Solicitors experienced in dispute resolution law

Sometimes no matter how hard you try to concentrate on your core business, you cannot avoid getting involved in a dispute. If a conflict does happen, it’s important to instruct a law firm like Hart Brown swiftly. With a team of experienced business dispute resolution solicitors to ensure your interests are fully protected, we will explain what your options are and help guide you on the best approach to take. All of our contract dispute resolution solicitors are specialists in their fields so you can be confident that you are in safe hands.

We understand that commercial disputes can be distracting and time-consuming so it is important they are resolved as quickly as possible. By offering advice that is straightforward, practical, and cost-effective we will strive to achieve the best result we can for you in the circumstances.

Our dispute resolution solicitors have many years of experience in dealing with all types of commercial litigation before different courts and tribunals. We pride ourselves on coming up with creative and practical solutions to even the most bitterly fought disputes. Whether you are in need of advice for breach of contract, shareholder, or partnership disputes, our business dispute resolution solicitors are here to help.

Whilst we will always take cases to trial when necessary, at the same time we try to promote early settlement of cases ‘out of court’. This includes mediation when it is both sensible and possible.

We act for clients locally, nationally, and internationally. Most of our work comes from existing clients or recommendations by those clients, other lawyers, or experts with whom we deal.

Our dedicated team of business dispute solicitors deal with a broad range of issues including:

  • Contractual disputes (of all types)
  • Commercial landlord, tenant and property disputes
  • Claims for misrepresentation
  • Commercial disputes
  • Commercial injunctions
  • Insurance claims
  • Partnership disputes
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Shareholder disputes
