Commercial litigation is the term given to a business dispute that proceeds to trial. In order to protect yourself effectively and pursue the appropriate compensation or resolution, you will need a solicitor specialising in Litigation.


Commercial litigation is a broad field of law simply because there are so many different types of business and so many ways that conflict can arise. Some of the most common commercial dispute cases the team deal with include:

  • Commercial contract disputes
  • Partnership disputes, shareholder disputes or breach of directors’ duties
  • Insurance disputes
  • Professional negligence
  • Commercial property disputes including leasehold issues and dilapidations
