Our Dispute Resolution Services:
Reputation management and a strong focus on absolute discretion are the core skills of our commercial dispute resolution solicitors. In addition, our cohesive team approach means we can deliver a fully joined-up strategy by calling upon the sophisticated knowledge of our litigation solicitors in the relevant areas of law.
Our dispute resolution services cover the following areas:
Whether you are seeking to pursue outstanding accounts, or need assistance in disputing a monetary claim being made against you; rational, tangible advice and personalised guidance is precisely what you will receive from our commercial debt recovery and insolvency experts.
When it comes to business related property, the combined knowledge of our dedicated property experts alongside that of our commercial property litigation solicitors is highly respected. If you are in the midst of a land, building or boundary dispute; are on either side of adverse possession proceedings; are trying to work through an issue concerning a right of way or right to light, or need to enforce a commercial lease covenant, our specialists are best-placed to assist.
Residential Landlord and Tenant
Residential tenancy disputes have the potential to become all-consuming and commercially damaging in terms of time and expense. If your residential tenant is in breach of their tenancy agreement, or you require expert guidance to evict a tenant and recover possession of the property, you will be able to rely fully on your dedicated Freemans litigation solicitors to lead you efficiently through each step for a swift, favourable and legally compliant outcome.
The combined expertise across our commercial property and litigation teams allows us to provide top-level knowledge in all areas of commercial landlord and tenant law. Our services include advice on terminating and renewal of commercial leases. We are experienced in representing clients through court proceedings for lease renewals (such as renewal proceedings under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954); breach of commercial lease terms and end of tenancy dilapidations claims and guidance through rent reviews and bringing or defending service charge dispute claims.
The potential for contractual disputes in a commercial environment is wide ranging. Our commercial dispute resolution lawyers have extensive experience across the board and have achieved outstanding results following contract disputes of the most complex nature. Our expertise extends to disputes involving misrepresentation; forgery; defective goods and services; share purchase agreements; agency, distribution and supply/service agreements; franchise agreements and more.
In business, you rely heavily on your professional advisers in whom you place implicit trust every time a crucial commercial decision needs to be made. In the event that professional advice falls short of the duty of care that is owed, or where a professional acts negligently, you could be left in a precarious financial position, facing an investigation or worse, looking at criminal proceedings. At Freemans we have particular expertise in pursuing claims for professional negligence against accountants, solicitors, financial advisers, surveyors and other such professionals.
Disputes often arise because there are discrepancies or a lack of clarity within legal agreements. For the utmost in reassurance, a highly skilled litigation solicitor at Freemans will ensure the architecture and wording of your commercial agreements are absolutely watertight. We have specialist knowledge in the drafting of all types of business contracts including partnership and shareholder agreements; policies and procedures; terms and conditions; health and safety policies; data protection policies; online contracts; booking agreements; disclaimers; warranties; loan agreements and sale/purchase agreements.
The tactical use of negotiation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as mediation or arbitration, may lead to quicker and more cost effective resolution of a dispute. Our commercial dispute resolution team are familiar with a range of ADR methods to try and resolve your dispute without the need for court action.
