Commercial disputes can arise over contracts, property, between directors, shareholders, contractors or as a consequence of insolvency proceedings.

Mediation services

Many commercial disputes can be settled through the use of professional mediation with neutral, trained mediators working to achieve a resolution without the need for court action. We can provide mediation services to support in reaching a consensus either through face-to-face negotiations or with each party meeting the mediator separately. We have a well-earned reputation for achieving results through mediation quickly and seamlessly.
