Commercial Dispute Resolution

Understanding your commercial aims is our number one priority. It allows us to help you achieve the result you want in the most appropriate way. Whether that is in or out of court, we have skilled negotiators and litigators who will fight your corner. Teamwork is invaluable.

From protective steps such as caveats, advising on dispute avoidance, funding options, negotiations and tactics, to litigation or alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or expert determination, our emphasis is on quality, strategic advice for our clients.

Our Commercial Dispute Resolution Group is one of the most well-respected and formidable in Scotland. We have particular specialisms in property, IP, debt recovery and insolvency work as well as in wider commercial work. However, most importantly, we have the people, skills, experience and systems to handle cases of all types and sizes.

Alternative dispute resolution remains a growth area and one in which our team has considerable expertise. We regularly represent parties at mediation, achieving successful outcomes.
