Contract disputes



New enquiries: 0800 118 1500

Business relationships break down for many reasons, such as failure to provide a satisfactory service, or supplying defective goods.  When a relationship breaks down parties should first review the contract which will set out the terms of business.

Our Dispute Resolution Team

A contract can be made verbally or in writing.  In the absence of agreeing terms, statute can imply terms into a contract .

Consideration must be given to the payment terms, whether or not the services or goods have been delivered in accordance with the timeframe stipulated in the contract, and how can the contract be terminated.

As a business you should not presume that you can terminate a contract with your customers for non payment of invoices.  You could be in breach if you terminate the contract prematurely and without giving proper notice.

It is important that you take legal advice early so we can help you resolve your dispute without issuing court proceedings.  In some cases court proceedings are inevitable, and we have built good relationships with local barristers who will assist in preparation of your case to trial.

We have acted for many clients to include logistics companies, manufacturers, builders, telecoms, care homes, funeral directors and professionals.
