Our team of commercial disputes specialists provide welcome legal support to the many business owners seeking the resolution of company, employee, property or partner disputes in South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

Disputes are never pleasant, but unavoidable sometimes. When you bring a claim to the table or need sound commercial advice you can trust, contact one of our commercial resolution specialists.

With a wealth of experience, our commercial disputes team will represent you and work to get the best possible outcome for your case. Working with us means you have access to expert assistance at a price that doesn’t break the bank. Our lawyers are well-versed in dealing with commercial disputes and are more than happy to manage this highly frustrating process on your behalf.

The type of commercial disputes that we cover:

  • Partnership/company/director disputes

When disagreements occur between partners or directors of a business, they can affect the interests of the business itself and that of its owners. The severity of these disputes and the reasons for their occurrence can vary. During these disputes, experienced, sensitive dispute resolution expertise is required. Our expert solicitors will provide legal support to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your business.

  • Employer/employee disputes

Conflict in the workplace can have repercussions for you and your business. Whether you have received grievances from an employee, you are defending against employment tribunal claims, or you are considering disciplinary procedures against an employee, it is important to seek immediate legal advice. Our employment law specialists can assist you in determining the right course of action and can even help you construct a framework to ensure that your response to employee disputes is robust, fair and consistent.

  • Disputes regarding quality issues that arise out of the sale of goods and supply of services

Disputes surrounding the quality of a product or service, either with a customer or a supplier, can often be handled through open dialogue.  However, if a situation escalates, you should seek legal advice to resolve the dispute. Our commercial law solicitors provide legal support to businesses dealing with suppliers that have failed to deliver products or services as expected or on time, as well as customers that haven’t paid. Alternatively, we also offer specialist legal advice to businesses that find themselves on the other side of such disputes.

  • Interpretation of contracts and contractual terms

When contract disputes arise, often due to parties interpreting a contract in contrary ways, this can be a stressful time for all involved. Whether the contract relates to products, services, land, property, employment or other matters, it is important to involve a legal specialist as soon as possible to advise on feasible routes and discussions going forward. Foys’ solicitors have decades worth of experience in the interpretation, construction and modification of contracts and contractual terms.

  • The recovery of unpaid monies and invoices, as well as defending such claims

Whether you are a sole trader, in a partnership or a director of a company, unpaid monies and invoices are always a concern, especially for small businesses. If you are dealing with an uncooperative customer that owes your business money, then one of our solicitors can guide you on the most effective route to take. It may also be the case that your business has been accused of not paying a debt, and you require legal support to deal with these claims. Our team of solicitors will advise you on the best course of action going forward.

  • Commercial property disputes

The ins and outs of commercial property can be a tricky and stressful area for business owners. The situation can become even more complicated in the event of a property dispute involving a tenant, landowner and/or landlord. Our commercial disputes team work with businesses to resolve property disputes by sharing our extensive knowledge and experience in matters relating to the negotiation, management, occupation and ownership of properties.

  • Professional negligence claims

As many businesses are reliant on the advice of trusted specialists, it is vital that this advice is fair and honest at all times. However, there are instances when professionals such as accountants, financial advisors, solicitors, surveyors, tax consultants and others have provided bad advice that may have cost you money or opportunities. The commercial disputes team at Foys will work with you to identify any professional negligence and advise if you may be entitled to claim for any compensation.

How litigation and dispute resolution law can help protect your business

Civil disputes can take place in a whole range of different spheres of business. Cases can involve a bitter, personal dispute between the owners of a business or a dispute over the use of terminology in a contract.

The first step towards the resolution of any dispute should be through negotiation and possibly by way of Alternative Dispute Resolution (such as mediation). This could result in a quicker and less stressful resolution to the dispute. If a dispute can be resolved without matters being referred to a Court or Tribunal, it is also likely to be much cheaper for the parties involved.

Mediation involves negotiations between the parties partaking in the dispute, generally through their respective solicitors. The process is presided over by an independent mediator.

At Foys, our solicitors know that many of our clients want to avoid expensive, time-consuming and stressful legal proceedings. That is why our commercial dispute resolution specialists endeavour to resolve disputes for their clients in a quick and cost-effective way.

We understand that disputes can be frustrating and upsetting, but our specialists are here to listen to all of the details surrounding your case and support you throughout this difficult time with a personalised approach.

We will keep you focused on the pertinent details of the dispute and advise on the best course of action. Every step you take to resolve the situation will be approached with a clear mind and backed up by sound legal advice.
