Our commercial litigation solicitors, based in Chichester, help businesses and individuals with a wide range of business and professional disputes in West Sussex and throughout South East England.
When you ask us to intervene in your business or professional dispute, our aim is to find a solution that protects you legally and financially while serving your overall business goals and defending your reputation. We also want to make the process of finding that solution as simple and stress-free as possible for you and minimising any potential damage to important business relationships.
Wherever possible, we try to avoid court action as this can take a long time while you wait for court dates, can easily become very expensive and is likely to make the dispute even more acrimonious. Court proceedings also take place in public, meaning the details of your dispute can become general knowledge – something that we appreciate many of our clients are keen to avoid.
Instead, our commercial litigation solicitors’ main focus in on Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), which involves a number of methods for resolving disputes without the need for court action. These techniques can be used for the vast majority of commercial disputes and can usually allow a positive outcome to be achieved faster, at lower cost, with less conflict and, crucially, in private.
The methods we use include:
Correspondence – A surprising number of business and professional dispute can be solved with a simple solicitor’s letter. In many cases, all it takes is a letter clearly laying out your side of the story and the relevant legal details to encourage the other party to drop their complaint or offer a settlement, depending on the circumstances.
Negotiation – Where there are complicated issues to resolve, or the other party in the dispute does not accept your arguments, we can negotiate on your behalf to find a fair compromise that both parties can live with.
Mediation – This involves both parties sitting down with one of our trained, neutral mediators who will guide you through discussing the issues at hand and help you to agree a mutually acceptable solution.
Without prejudice meetings – This is where both parties meet to discuss the dispute and possible ways forward, with a legally binding agreement in place that nothing discussed or revealed in the meeting can later be used in court proceedings or a tribunal.
Our commercial litigation solicitors offer a friendly, professional service designed to make dealing with your business disputes as simple and stress-free as possible. We understand that every business and every business dispute is unique, so will offer a service tailored to your situation and commercial objectives, ensuring you get the right outcome for you.
