Our Dispute Resolution and Litigation team achieves timely and cost-effective solutions to a wide range of disputes for our business clients. We help public and private companies, SMEs, partnerships and sole traders to address the problems they face in a business-sensitive way. We listen and work with you to achieve your objectives and will help you to minimise or eliminate the risk of a dispute occurring again.

We aim to resolve disputes without recourse to complex litigation wherever possible, knowing that our clients’ interests are seldom best served by lengthy court proceedings. Our team is experienced in all forms of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation. Malcolm Robson, is an accredited Centre for Dispute Resolution mediator.

Where court proceedings are necessary our experienced litigators will represent you robustly in the High Court, County Court and other Courts and Tribunals and in arbitration and adjudication (in construction disputes).

We are able to take or defend action on an urgent basis to protect your interests, including obtaining asset freezing orders, search orders and other injunctions if appropriate. Members of our team are frequently appointed as supervising solicitors in respect of the execution of search orders.

We advise on disputes that include national, international and cross-border issues and regularly advise lawyers outside the UK on matters or proceedings involving English law.

We offer a range of funding options and are happy to discuss tailoring a package to suit your needs.

We can help your business with:

  • Corporate & commercial contract disputes
  • Commercial litigation
  • Intellectual Property claims (including trade mark infringement, comparative advertising claims, passing off, copyright infringement, database infringement)
  • Building and construction disputes
  • Fraud and asset recovery
  • Company and partnership disputes (including s.994 petitions)
  • Sale of goods and services disputes
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Product liability issues (including health and safety, corporate manslaughter and inquests).
  • Defamation claims
  • Banking and Insolvency matters
  • Debt recovery

If you would like to discuss an issue on a no obligation basis, we would be happy to talk. Please contact disputeresolution@bwbllp.com or call +44 (0)20 7551 7777 and ask to speak to Malcolm Robson or Robert Oakley.
