One of the primary roles of company solicitors is assisting companies in disputes. They provide help through negotiation, arbitration, or litigation, in matters including contract disputes, shareholder disputes, minority shareholders oppression, and insolvency disputes

They will also advise on risk management strategies to avoid legal disputes and ensure business continuity.

Insolvency and restructuring

Corporate solicitors assist with insolvency proceedings, including advising directors on their duties in the context of financial distress, negotiating with creditors, and restructuring advice.

Commercial disputes

Commercial disputes in England and Wales encompass a broad spectrum of conflicts arising from business transactions and relationships.

These disputes often include breaches of contract, partnership and shareholder disagreements, intellectual property infringements, professional negligence, and conflicts over commercial property leases. For instance, lease disputes often arise over rent reviews, lease renewals, and dilapidations claims, while breaches of contract may involve failures to deliver goods or services as agreed.

The resolution of such disputes is critical for maintaining business continuity and relationships. This is because prolonged conflicts can disrupt operations and harm reputations.

To resolve these disputes, businesses often resort to litigation, arbitration, and mediation, each offering distinct advantages. Litigation provides a legally binding resolution through the courts, offering a formal and public judgment. Arbitration, on the other hand, allows parties to choose a specialist arbitrator and provides a binding decision in a private setting. Mediation offers a more flexible and confidential approach, enabling parties to negotiate a mutually acceptable solution with the help of a neutral mediator.

The legal framework in England and Wales is designed to support the fair and efficient resolution of commercial disputes.

The courts are well-equipped to handle complex commercial cases, and there is a strong emphasis on alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to reduce the burden on the judicial system and provide more expedient solutions.

ADR methods, such as mediation and arbitration, are encouraged to foster settlements that preserve business relationships and minimise costs.

The combination of robust legal mechanisms and effective ADR options ensures that businesses in England and Wales can resolve disputes in a manner that is both equitable and conducive to long-term commercial success.
