Dispute Resolution and Litigation
At Baines Wilson we understand that commercial disputes can interfere with the day to day operation of your business, taking up valuable management time and putting business relationships at risk.
We take the time to understand your business and commercial objectives. We provide you with an upfront realistic assessment of your position, the options available and the likely costs so that you can make informed choices from the outset. We are responsive to our clients’ needs and adopt a flexible and problem-solving approach to commercial disputes, designed to produce practical business solutions (not just a legal “right or wrong” answer). Our advice is clear and cost-effective.
Our experience covers a wide range of business disputes including: -
- Agency, supply and distribution agreements
- Business interruption claims
- Competition law issues
- Construction claims
- Contract disputes
- Directors' and Officers' liability
- Insurance coverage disputes
- Media disputes
- Product safety and liability issues
- Professional negligence claims
- Regulatory defence
- Shareholder disputes
- Technology disputes
- Warranty claims
- White collar crime
We tailor our approach to your circumstances to achieve the best outcome for you. Our lawyers have made extensive use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (including mediation) to settle disputes and save money for our clients. However, they will make effective use of the Courts when robust action is required. We have a breadth of experience in the County Courts, High Court, and the more specialist Courts, such as the Mercantile Courts, the Technology and Construction Courts, and the Patents Court. We will find the right form of dispute resolution process and work with you to reach solutions.
