Commercial Disputes

 

Sladen Legal's dispute resolution and litigation team provide clear advice and guidance delivering ongoing, practical support at every stage. We work with you to set the approach and strategy for each commercial dispute and any subsequent litigation. Our priority is for our clients to avoid litigious disputes, but when this is inevitable we are fierce in our determination to achieve the best solutions for our clients.

Litigation can be expensive - we do not shy away from this reality. We approach litigation sensibly and transparently, managing and minimising risk and resolving matters as early as possible. We keep you up to date throughout the negotiation and litigation process and manage disputes so there are no surprises in relation to cost. 

We also provide broader business advice and consultancy (including liaising with accountants, financiers and other advisers) to ensure legal and regulatory issues are addressed with broader commercial objectives in mind.
