Commercial Litigation Solicitors in Manchester

No matter how well you plan or run your business, commercial disputes can still arise which need to be resolved quickly and effectively to protect your business interests.

If not handled correctly, business disputes can harm your business financially, as well as potentially damaging your reputation and key commercial relationships. Receiving the right legal advice early is therefore essential to protect your business.

While many people think of litigation as involving court proceedings, there are various other methods for resolving business disputes. This might be as simple as issuing a solicitor’s letter, or could involve both parties sitting down with a trained, neutral mediator to find a mutually acceptable solution. However, sometimes court action will be required, so it is important to have the right advice and representation in these situations to ensure a fair outcome for your interests.

This includes both internal disputes and those involving third parties.
