Business / Contractual disputes
A business dispute can occur at any times.
Such disputes can manifest themselves in a variety of ways. For example, consumers can bring an action for faulty products, suppliers can pursue their customers for unpaid invoices and directors or shareholders can find themselves in conflict over the mismanagement of business affairs.
Contracts should be drafted comprehensively to protect the position of all parties concerned. If a dispute arises, we strive to resolve matters amicably to preserve commercial relationships. Where an amicable resolution is not possible, we take appropriate and immediate action to protect our clients.
We act for a range of clients involved in disputes over defective goods and services, directors’ disputes, shareholders and partnership disputes, breaches of trust and debt recovery.
