Most businesses, even those successful and well run, face litigation and disputes from time to time. Any commercial or business litigation case, whether involving breach of contract, employment law or a host of other types, will inherently create problems for business and can prove extremely costly.
Skilled commercial and business litigation solicitors know how to strike a balance between strongly advocating a clients position whilst strategically aiming for an early settlement of a dispute, as the longer any business dispute continues, the more it costs.
The key is often devising a strategy, assessing tactics at an early stage, providing clear advice on legal and evidential issues and ongoing assessment of strengths and weaknesses. It is also important to assess at an early stage whether, if legal action is necessary, any sum in dispute and costs are likely to be recoverable from the opponent(s). It is one thing having a strong claim in legal terms, but another thing entirely enforcing any settlement or court order.
