When alternative means have failed to resolve a business dispute, commercial litigation is the next step.
Disputes can occur for almost every business and organisation: suppliers, customers, business partners and even shareholders all have the potential to create tension. Dealing with disputes is not easy; they can use valuable resource, time and critically, prevent a management team from running the business.
What do we do?
We take a firm, yet commercially-grounded approach to dispute resolution. That means we actively encourage and engage in alternative dispute resolution methods but don’t shy away from bringing and defending court proceedings. Our team advises on complex commercial disputes across a range of sectors including manufacturing, retail, sports, charities, pensions, property and recruitment.
We have a strong track record and can quickly pull together trusted teams of experts to assist in any case and obtain the best outcome for our clients, often in time-critical situations.
Gateley is ‘an outstanding commercial litigation firm that combines sound legal advice with tactical astuteness and an understanding of commercial sensitivities’.
As many disputes require other specialist litigation expertise, we regularly consult with our colleagues in other disciplines such as construction disputes, insolvency litigation, insurance disputes, IP disputes, IT disputes, offshore litigation, professional negligence, property litigation, shipping disputes and business ownership disputes.
Who do we help?
We act for a wide range of clients including multi-national corporations, private and public limited companies with a nationwide presence, family-owned businesses, and individuals (primarily shareholders, partners or property owners).
