Commercial and Contractual Disputes

When things are running well it is all too easy to let things like supplier contracts and service agreements gather dust in the office drawer.

But as soon as things start to go downhill—a missed payment here, a service level provision ignored there—it is important that you are clear on your legal position.

Our Central London based specialist commercial dispute lawyers can quickly review your contractual rights and obligations. We will help you to appreciate where you stand legally in any commercial dispute, as well as guiding you on the practical implications of your options.

In collaboration with you, and taking into account any budget restraints, we will help you to formulate a strategy to deal with your dispute efficiently and effectively.

Commercial Dispute Resolution and Litigation

At Smithfield Partners, we are not your typical City of London law firm. Our lawyers are passionate about commercial law and business and we recognise that there is usually a balance to be struck when managing conflicts with suppliers, customers or other stakeholders.

We take a pragmatic approach and always aim to settle commercial and contractual Disputes quickly and cost-effectively without matters needlessly escalating into formal court action and spiralling legal bills. Take note though, our lawyers may be approachable and practical, but when an aggressive stance is required we will take our gloves off and fight your corner with all the strength and vigour that you would expect of a City of London based law firm.

We have extensive experience in resolving commercial contract disputes concerning everything from intellectual property to professional negligence and property matters. We have also been instructed on a number of legally significant cases in the national and European courts. These includes for example an intellectual property dispute relating to the distribution and use of foreign satellite equipment brought by the Football Association Premier League against two UK distributors and a group of end users.

In addition to being commercial litigation specialists, we also offer expert advice on alternative forms of dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration where these are appropriate.
