BLM’s Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team act in a wide variety of corporate disputes, commercial and contractual disputes, commercial property disputes, banking and financial disputes, intellectual property disputes, Enterprise Act and competition tribunal damages claims. Our team acts for a wide spectrum of clients, including insurers, smaller to medium companies, high net worth individuals, trusts and business owners. 

At BLM our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team understand commercial disputes and litigation can be costly and time intensive. Our team’s experience in resolving disputes, whether through negotiation, mediation, or litigation, where unavoidable, makes them well placed to advise on the legal options available to you; with an appreciation of wider commercial and personal factors that may drive your litigation strategy.     

Our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team has expertise in the following areas: 

Our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team will work with you to consider the options available to resolve the dispute which has arisen. From the outset and throughout your case, our team will develop a strategy around your objectives, and with a clear understanding of your business. We understand that personal relationships and commercial aspects will need to be taken into consideration.    

We aim to provide clear, strategic and commercial advice to resolve cases swiftly and economically.    

You may need to take urgent steps to protect your position and that of your business, including an urgent injunction against a former employee in breach of restrictive covenants, or freezing order to prevent the dissipation of assets. Our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team is well placed to quickly advise on the options available.    

Where litigation is unavoidable, we are well placed to advise on funding options, whether that be conditional fee agreements, third party funders or legal expenses insurance. We have relationships with a number of brokers and providers in the market to offer a range of solutions to your funding requirements which may enable you to pursue a claim that would otherwise not be financially sustainable, or relieve pressure on cash flow within your business.  

Given our considerable litigation expertise, including extensive trial experience, our team will advise you on the processes involved in court proceedings and support you every step of the way.   

BLM’s Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team works across the national BLM network; it is comprised of three partners, assisted by a team of senior associates, associates and junior fee earners. Each case is led by a partner, with the expertise and support of other lawyers to ensure work is carried out as appropriately and effectively.
