Commercial Litigation, Dispute Resolution & Debt Recovery

Commercial Litigation, Dispute Resolution & Debt Recovery

Resolving disputes and recovering debt in business can involve reasoned discussion, negotiated settlement or hard, bold and firm litigation. Let us help you identify the most effective approach for you.

If you have a business dispute, working with the right legal team can be the difference between resolving an issue quickly and efficiently, and entering into a drawn-out process that can add pressure to you and your business.

To assist you with disputes and conflict, our litigators will take the time to listen to you and help you consider all of the facts surrounding your issue. Sometimes, the best commercial solution may be an alternative approach which hasn’t been immediately obvious but is uncovered by combining our dispute resolution experience and your commercial priorities and desires. If you have a commercial dispute, let us provide you with clear, concise and practical advice with a drive and tenacity that delivers results.

If circumstances dictate a need to protect your interests, our litigation team will be there to assist you with the enforcement of security or the pursuit of guarantors.

Get in touch with our friendly team of advisors on enquiries@andrewjackson.co.uk for help and advice on any aspect of Commercial Litigation, Dispute Resolution and/or Debt Recovery and how it may affect you and your business.

Or call your preferred office today to speak to a member of the team.
