Commercial contracts

Commercial contracts are part and parcel of normal business life and are regularly the subject of common commercial disputes. Most come into being without difficulty. Where problems arise, we can help. We can advise on:

  • Breach of contract claims
  • Rectifying defective contracts
  • Enforcing rights and duties under contracts
  • Termination of contracts.

Alternative dispute resolution

Where the best route involves the courts, our lawyers understand the importance of guiding clients through the process step by step and ensuring that everything is thoroughly prepared. We have extensive experience in the Sheriff Court, Supreme Court, Lands Tribunal and Land Court, as well as before numerous Tribunals and Inquiries. On other occasions, a desired outcome can be achieved through negotiations, arbitration or mediation.
