Frequently Asked Questions

There are several ways to resolve a commercial property dispute. The quickest and most cost-effective option is to pursue ADR (mediation or arbitration), to negotiate a settlement with the other party without having to resort to court action. If this is not possible, the only remaining route is litigation — something that may take a significant amount of time and money to complete.

If you seek legal advice from specialist commercial property dispute solicitors, they will always try to resolve your claim amicably at the first instance. Should litigation be your only option, they will defend your position and interests in court.

There’s no set timeframe to resolve a commercial property dispute. How long it takes depends on a number of factors, including the circumstances of the transaction and the methods used to resolve the dispute. Alternative dispute resolution practices such as mediation and arbitration can yield faster results than litigation, making it better to seek an amicable solution wherever possible.

Seeking assistance from experienced commercial property litigation lawyers offers you the best possible chance of securing a positive result. They will work with you throughout the process to provide a tailored solution designed to reach your goals, while being open about your position.
