Commercial pragmatism

Disputes can divert resources away from your business goals so obtaining clear and commercial advice is essential.

We understand that minimising risk and achieving commercially sensible solutions is key to resolving commercial disputes. Our dispute resolution solicitors are all experts in their chosen fields, but we understand that legal expertise is only part of the dispute resolution process. Equally important are an understanding of the commercial reality of a dispute and the ability to find creative solutions.

In every matter we handle, we carry out an initial risk assessment and work with our clients to achieve the best possible outcome at the earliest stage, based on an agreed strategy and funding requirements. This does not always mean court litigation; we spend a lot of our time in early stage dispute avoidance, helping clients nip problems in the bud and salvage difficult business relationships.

As well as being tough litigators where this is required, Spearing Waite dispute resolution lawyers are experienced negotiators who are well versed in Alternative Dispute Resolution procedures such as mediation.

Spearing Waite regularly resolves commercial disputes in the following areas:

  • Contractual disputes
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Partnership disputes
  • Injunctive relief
  • Defamation actions
  • Debt recovery
