Commercial Dispute Resolution
While disputes are never good for business, sometimes they arise despite your best efforts and when they do, they need to be addressed. In that situation our commercial dispute resolution team will be able to guide you through what is, for most business people, a unique and often challenging process.
At Baker Newby our commercial dispute lawyers recognize that even when it comes to disputes, businesses are looking for practical solutions. Actual litigation, for example, is often not practical due to the significant costs and length of time involved (although sometimes you are left with no other option). Our team is able to assist you with all aspects of resolving disputes – negotiation, mediation, arbitration, settlement and, often as a last resort, Court – and will do so in a manner that allows you to continue to focus on your business.
Unfortunately in this litigation-oriented era it is inevitable that not all commercial disputes can be resolved outside the courtroom. With this in mind, our commercial litigation team is an experienced group of trial lawyers, having conducted numerous lawsuits and other proceedings of all sizes and complexities and representing clients at all levels of Court, and so are well prepared to guide our clients through the rigours of dealing with suing or being sued.
Some of the main areas in which we can assist you in this regard include:
- Debt recovery (collections, realization, foreclosures, insolvency)
- Internal governance issues (shareholders’ disputes, partnership disputes, employee issues)
- External disputes (breaches of contract, real estate disputes, landlord-tenant disputes)
- Construction law disputes (including builder’s lien claims and breach of trust claims)
- Insurance claims
