Commercial Contractual Disputes

The law of contract underlies virtually all business dealings. Getting it wrong can be a costly mistake and can result in commercial contractual disputes.

How we can help with commercial contractual disputes

We can assist prior to any dispute arising by advising you on the terms of any contract you are considering entering into, or proposing to use yourself in your own dealings. By taking early professional advice, you will ensure that you are aware of your contractual rights and obligations, and any potential areas of risk.

If a dispute does arise, we can advise you on the strengths and weaknesses of your position and the potential financial consequences to you. We can act on your behalf in pursuing or defending a claim, neogtiatiing an out of court settlement, or in court proceedings if they cannot be avoided.

Our solicitors routinely deal with all types of contractual matters but as a general guide we cover the following:

  • Advising on interpretation of contracts generally
  • Breach of contract
  • Misrepresentation claims
  • Warranties and third party rights
  • Guarantees and indemnities
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Sale and supply of goods and services
  • Professional negligence
