Litigation – or dispute resolution as it’s also known – involves assistance with disputes and claims which may arise in the course of any commercial transaction or deal. Such matters could arise between different companies, or between companies and individuals. Issues which fall under litigation can range from contractual matters, banking transactions and fraud, to mergers and acquisitions, regulatory mechanisms or competition, corporate management and restructuring problems. There is more than one way to resolve a dispute. Court proceedings may be required in order to crystallise the issues but alternative resolution methods such as mediation need to be considered at an early stage. We can also advise where there is a cross-border element to the dispute, e.g. where the debtor or assets are outside the UK.
