Business Disputes Solicitors

We will fight your corner if your business faces a dispute

We understand the world of business and the commercial pressures under which business owners and managers operate.  Disputes, whether internal (for example between directors and shareholders), or external (such as with a supplier), cause distraction and potentially significant cost.

Longmores act for a wide range of businesses, some very large, some very small and many in between.  Clients include company directors and shareholders as well as business owners.  We help them to find speedy and cost-effective ways to resolve disputes that serve their commercial interests and minimise business disruption, saving management time and keeping cost under control.

We work with businesses on a range of issues including:

  • Business mediation and arbitration
  • Contract disputes
  • Partnership and Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) disputes
  • Intellectual property disputes
  • Debt recovery
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Injunctions, freezing orders, and search orders
  • Property disputes
  • Land valuation arbitration

We have extensive experience of matters relating to the recruitment industry in particular including regulatory compliance issues and theft of confidential information such as databases.

Our approach is no-nonsense, intelligent and commercially astute. We take time to understand the background and underlying cause of any dispute so that we can offer clear, concise and objective advice as to your options and likelihood of success should you decide to litigate.  That means you can take an informed decision as to how best to proceed.

Where possible we encourage clients to opt for alternative approaches to resolution such as mediation, so long as this delivers the right outcome for you and serves to minimise business risk.   We routinely represent clients in a variety of forums, including the small claims track of the County Courts, the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal and all levels of the High Court.  In doing so, our approach is rigorous, robust and tenacious.
