Litigation & Commercial Disputes

Our commercial litigation department is one of the largest in Scotland and consists of highly-skilled litigators with a diverse spread of knowledge, experience and expertise.

We also have a rapidly-growing specialist commercial litigation team based in our Newcastle office who cover the North of England.

Our approach to litigation

In business, as in life, disputes and breakdowns in relationships are unfortunately inevitable. The way we conduct litigation and dispute resolution is fundamental in getting the right result for every client, in every case.

Our team's strengths in strategy, creativity and advocacy allows us to plan, develop and implement a bespoke strategy for every case and every client.

Each set of facts and circumstances is analysed in detail without any presumptions, the client's appetite for litigation is assessed and a strategic approach is agreed from the outset.

Picking the correct forum to resolve a dispute is the key to getting the right result. We will always ensure you are maximising your chances of success and minimising risk and cost through the selection of the right forum. Our lawyers, retained advocates and barristers are at home in any environment.
