St Pauls Chambers has always embraced a wide variety of work, so we have an unrivalled ability to understand how business works. The resolution of commercial disputes is a key area of Chambers’ work and expertise.

What is Commercial Law?

The resolution of commercial disputes is a key area of Chambers’ work and expertise. Commercial law disputes can include the following:

  • Complaints about a supplier
  • A failure to pay invoices properly rendered
  • A concern that an employee might be taking commercially sensitive information and supplying it to a competitor or new employer
  • An allegation that profit earned from a business relationship is being wrongly diverted away from you or your company.

We understand that when you negotiated your commercial agreement it was in an atmosphere of trust and with the desire to get the paperwork done so you could get on with business. By the time the dispute arises, much of that trust will have dissipated and you will be resentful of the time you have to spend sorting out the dispute.

We are experts in telling you what your obligations are. We will read your documents with speed and accuracy, giving you our opinion as to what they mean to the dispute. We provide practical solutions to the problems that arise and are as well placed to take you through a mediated settlement as we are through a High Court commercial action. Throughout, the focus is on helping you achieve what you want – there is no point in a clever point of law that is irrelevant to the ultimate outcome.
