Advice For Business

Commercial Contractual Disputes

Our Commercial Litigation team has a wealth of experience advising on all aspects of contractual issues and disputes.

Any business, however well organised can run into disputes with suppliers, customers, contractors, industry regulators which results in the need for legal advice and representation. Contracts in business are a inevitability. If either party fails to honour the terms of the contract this results in a breach for which the aggrieved party may be able to sue. It is key for the business to resolve that dispute to ensure prompt payment or to preserve a business relationship. Pearson Solicitors Commercial Litigation team understand the importance of practical advice and prompt action.

Our solicitors have extensive dispute resolution experience and strive to understand your business. When a dispute arises, they are well placed to help you find a resolution as quickly as possible using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) procedures such as Mediation, Expert Determination and arbitration, or, where necessary court proceedings.
