Contractual disputes can involve breach of contract or repudiatory breach of contract, as well as renegotiations over the terms of a contract or how a contact is implemented.
Contractual disputes can soon escalate and it is important to seek expert legal advice at an early stage of a dispute to prevent costly litigation at a later stage.
Duncan Lewis commercial litigation solicitors can advise on contractual disputes involving SMEs or major corporations, as well as advising on contractual disputes between individual parties and contractual disputes involving sole traders.
Commercial contracts may cover different areas of a business operation, including supply of goods and distribution, payments and financial obligations, agency agreements and leasing or fleet agreements.
Duncan Lewis commercial litigation solicitors can advise at any stage of a contractual dispute, including advising on available remedies, including injunctive relief to protect a client’s interests – and dispute resolution and mediation services to prevent costly litigation whenever possible.
The Duncan Lewis commercial litigation department can also call on in house experts in most areas of law in any contract dispute, including commercial law, property law, employment law, criminal law, family law, mental health and healthcare law and immigration law.
Our aim is to resolve contractual disputes as quickly and cost effectively as possible – and provide workable solutions to prevent disputes in the future.
It is advisable to seek legal advice as soon as possible in cases involving contractual disputes – continuing with a contract when there is a known breach of contract may, for example, be deemed affirmation of the contract.
Contractual disputes can have a serious impact on business operations and a company’s reputation – and in the case of small businesses and individuals, financial hardship and loss of reputation may occur as a result of a contractual dispute.
Duncan Lewis can also advise on damages, debt recovery and recovery of any other losses in case involving a contractual dispute – as well as advising on appeals in the High Court.
