Disputes are a regular feature of business and commercial life. Many are minor issues that can be easily resolved between the parties involved.

Other types of business dispute are so major that they may threaten a company’s very existence.

Disputes may break out between shareholders and directors, particularly when clear and comprehensive shareholder agreements were not in place from the start of the relationship.

If a company suffers loss or damage due to the advice or actions of a professional they have employed, they can instigate a professional negligence dispute against that professional.

These professionals include:

  • Accountants
  • Banks
  • Financiers
  • Barristers
  • Tradesmen
  • Online security experts

Disputes over contracts, restrictive covenants, and commercial property can be time-consuming and unsettling for a company and those involved.

In the most serious of cases you may need to take out an injunction to protect your business’s reputation. You may also need advice on insolvency disputes if your company, or one of your clients, faces serious financial challenges.
