Commercial Disputes Solicitors services in Birmingham, Solicitors services in Manchester and Nationwide
Disputes frequently arise in business and unless they are handled quickly and efficiently, they can often become a major drain on both management time and resources.
Where possible, we always try to settle disputes by negotiation. In many cases, disputes can be resolved by using alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation and arbitration. These procedures tend to be more informal and less adversarial than going to Court, which in turn make it a much quicker and cheaper process.

We can assure you that in these circumstances, our Litigation Team will always “fight your corner”, so that you obtain the best possible result.

Warranty claims arise in a number of different situations – they can arise out of a contract for the sale of goods/services, or where a warranty is given as to a performance or quality.
Warranty claims can also arise when a business is being sold, in that the seller typically provides the buyer with a number of warranties, in the sale agreement.
People in a position of trust or fiduciary relationship, such as Officers, Directors, high level employees of a Corporation or business, Agents and Brokers, all owe certain duties to their principals or their employers.
Fiduciary relationships, which by their very nature, relationships of good faith, may involve a variety of obligations depending on the particular circumstances.
Fiduciary duties require that the fiduciary acts solely in the bests interests of the employer/principal, free of any self dealing, conflicts of interests, or other abuse of the principal for personal advantage. By way of background, a breach or fiduciary duty is often easier to prove than fraud. The claimant does not need to prove criminal or fraudulent intent (or the other elements of fraud). All that is required to succeed, is that the claimant must show that the defendant occupied a position of trust or fiduciary relationship, and that this was breached to the defendants personal benefits.
