commercial dispute resolution

At Underwood & Co we understand how challenging and costly any form of dispute can be, so the priority for our disputes team is to devise strategies to avoid conflicts in the first place and to minimise the impact of those that are inevitable. Where appropriate, we have the experience and resources needed to handle emergency Court applications or heavy litigation effectively.

We have experience in dealing with a wide range of disputes from the more personal landlord and tenant disagreements or corporate and individual insolvency through to large civil cases such as high value commercial, development and contractual disputes.

The vast majority of disputes that we deal with are resolved without the need for litigation through mediation and other forms of dispute management and resolution.

Drawing on our significant experience and long established working arrangements with high quality secure professional support firms, we can offer completely tailored commercial solutions to achieve your preferred outcome as effectively and efficiently as possible with the minimum amount of fuss. All of this comes to you with cost and resourcing options specific to your unique requirements.

Often the way lawyers communicate with each other makes matters worse for their clients. It’s really all about being clever rather than aggressive; it pays dividends.
