How we help you

  • We always resolve disputes as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. We will help you take a robust position using litigation or adopt a more conciliatory position, using mediation and arbitration , depending on your agenda and the benefits to your business.
  • We carry out periodic reviews of client contracts to ensure they are enforceable.
  • We advise clients on all forms of contract including terms and conditions of business, distribution and supply agreements, business sale and purchase agreements, shareholders agreements, franchise agreements and construction contracts. 

It’s good to bear in mind...

  • Contact us as soon as a dispute arises, or sooner if you believe one is imminent. There’s a good chance we can help you to head it off before it escalates.
  • Don’t forget key aspects of your contracts. For example, put termination and renewal dates in your diary, and ensure that notice requirements are complied with.
  • Make sure that you fully understand the contract before you sign it.
