Our commercial dispute resolution team at Portner has extensive experience in acting for clients in a broad range of commercial disputes. Our focus is to try and resolve a dispute as swiftly as possible. If this cannot be immediately achieved, then we will advise you on the best course of action in order to achieve your objectives. We are experienced in many forms of dispute resolution, including litigation (in the County Court and High Court), mediation, arbitration and adjudication.
Our experienced team are experts in organising and shaping the narrative of a case to present the most compelling arguments.
Our work covers a broad range of areas, from commercial disputes and debt recovery to specialist areas such as professional negligence, fraud, arbitration, construction and property-related disputes. We regularly instruct the country’s leading barristers and expert consultants with whom we have close relationships.
We know that litigation is not just about fighting for your principles but achieving a cost-effective result. We always keep costs proportionate to the sum claimed or the value of the work.
We consider mediation at all stages to reduce costs and limit the risk of a trial. We have the negotiating skills to ensure that if a settlement is agreed, it is on the most favourable terms possible for your circumstances.
