Commercial litigation and disputes

If and when a difficult situation arises, you need a legal companion you can trust.

Unfortunately, disputes are a way of business life. How you deal with such problems can make or break a business. At Primas we have an experienced and trusted commercial litigation team that adopts a bespoke, analysis-based approach which leads to a decisive, pro active and successful strategy.

We put ourselves in the client's shoes when approaching disputes, aiming to achieve the best and most cost effective route as quickly as possible. The way in which disputes are settled has evolved. We can look at Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) such as mediation to gain a successful outcome, or if necessary we look at litigation through the courts.

Whichever the solution, having Primas's commercial litigation solicitors on your side can give you an advantage.

The Primas commercial litigation team regularly handles the following types of dispute:
  • Claims arising out of business purchase and sale agreements
  • Commercial contract disputes
  • Debt recovery
  • Fraud
  • Insolvency proceedings
  • Intellectual property matters (such as copyright, passing off and trademark infringement)

What is commercial litigation?

Commercial litigation relates to contentious matters between businesses.

Commercial litigation encompasses virtually every dispute that may occur within the business environment. Including but not limited to;

  • Breaches of contract
  • Business dissolutions
  • Interference with business relationships
  • Intellectual property and patent infringement
  • Shareholder issues
  • Partnership disputes
  • Debt collection (including statutory demands and winding up petitions)
  • Property litigation

Given the broad nature of commercial disputes, it is unfortunately not uncommon for them to occur.

Disputes can be messy and time-consuming which may be costly for many businesses.

Where necessary we will consider Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). ADR usually takes the form of without prejudice negotiations and formal mediation. It is, however, inevitable that sometimes matters proceed to Court.

We understand the importance of getting the right legal result, our tailored approach to each client ensures that we understand their business and therefore their commercial requirements. Each of our dispute resolution lawyers are well equipped with a tenacious work ethic and a strategic mindset in order to achieve the best result for our client.

With offices in Manchester, Cheshire and London we have extensive resources at our disposal to ensure that no client feels unloved.
