Commercial Disputes

Act on your behalf to resolve business challenges. Keep trading, keep growing

Our commercial dispute resolution team deals with a wide variety of cases throughout Scotland, working with small business owners and partnerships through to large national organisations.

The services we advise on include (but are not limited to):

  • Partnership Litigation - Disputes between partners commonly arising where partners are seeking to expel another partner, or when a partner wants to retire. Disagreements often arise relating to the ownership of assets, payment of the outgoing partner's capital or through restrictive covernants.
  • Directors Duties - We act for and against directors involved in cases of breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contractual obligation and Directors Disqualification proceedings which can arise from insolvency.
  • Shareholder Disputes - These important agreements can protect minority shareholders from being taken advantage of particularly in small companies. These agreements provide a protocol for running the company. They can provide a mechanism for resolving disputes and/or a fair buyout provision if disputes cannot be resolved.  Where a shareholder breaches the terms of the shareholders agreement we can take action on behalf of our client to enforce the agreement. If you are a shareholder in a small company speak to us now about having a shareholders agreement put in place.
  • Directors Facing Disqualification - commonly arising when a director breaches one of their duties, including the duty to avoid conflicts of interests.
  • Intellectual Property - our experienced team have dealt with protection of our client’s copyrights and patents both in court and in specialist tribunals.

  • Commercial Lease disputes – we can assist you with enforcement of provisions of leases, recovery of rent, eviction, irritancy of lease, dilapidations and interdict proceedings arising from commercial property leases.

  • Consumer Rights– we regularly act for car dealerships in respect of Sale of Goods legislation including internet purchases.
