Assistance with dispute resolution

Disputes and litigation can be stressful and costly for your business or organisation – our team of expert dispute resolution solicitors can help you manage the situation proactively and robustly to facilitate the most positive result possible.

We have an experienced team of commercial litigation solicitors who are able to advise and assist you if you encounter issues which could impact your business.

Franchise disputes

We act for both franchisors and franchisees in dispute resolution matters relating to commercial franchises. We have significant expertise in setting up franchise agreements and this means we are ideally placed to help clients when things go wrong.

Matters we can advise upon include, breach of contract, intellectual property rights, misrepresentation and more.

Intellectual property

If you feel your business’s intellectual property rights have been breached, the litigation team at Wellers can help you halt any unauthorised use, effect seizure of any unofficial goods or merchandise and seek damages when necessary.

Although some types of intellectual property may be intangible assets, the value should be protected and any infringement will require swift and robust action to prevent losses and possible damage to your reputation.

Landlord/tenant disputes

Whether you are the landlord of residential or commercial property, or the tenant in a business property, the litigation solicitors at Wellers can act on your behalf in matters relating to property disputes. We are able to act swiftly and proactively to prevent disputes from arising. If a situation worsens, we can provide advice and representation to minimise disruption and losses.

We act for clients in matters relating to rent reviews, commercial lease interpretation, breach of covenant and much more.

Professional negligence

When a business employs a professional service provider, whether an accountant, architect or solicitor, any advice given, upon which you act, or the service provided must be of an adequate standard and any risks must be carefully explained. If the service of a professional falls below an acceptable standard and your business suffers loss as a result, you have the right to claim compensation through the civil courts.

Property disputes

Wellers’ property dispute lawyers specialise in providing advice and representation for clients in commercial property disputes. We understand that not all disputes require costly litigation and we tailor our legal advice according to your unique situation.

We act for developers, landowners and commercial property tenants across a wide range of matters including (but not limited to) breach of restrictive covenant, nuisance and trespass claims and recovery of land.

Debt recovery

If you are seeking payment or enforcement of a debt, the debt recovery solicitors at Wellers offer a robust, pragmatic service backed by proactive investigation and an array of tools to aid resolution, including third party debt orders, freezing injunctions and instruction of bailiffs.

Contractual disputes

Business and commercial operations generally run on contracts, so it’s an unsurprising reality that contractual disputes occur from time to time. Whether it relates to breach of contract, agency agreements, misrepresentation or some other contract-related matter, our solicitors will employ a range of resolution and litigation tools to remedy the situation.

Shareholder disputes

Disputes within a business can derail decision making and cause stress on the organisation. The dispute resolution solicitors at Wellers can assist in matters arising from shareholder disputes, director disputes and unfair prejudice petitions.

Construction disputes

Whether you are an owner, developer, contractor, construction professional or other associated trade, construction disputes have the capacity to stall your business and hinder cash flow. At Wellers our construction dispute solicitors aim to help you avoid lengthy, costly litigation and will attempt to find a solution that suits your particular situation.

Claims against financial companies

If you have been mis-sold a financial services product such as a fixed-rate loan, interest rate hedging product or you have suffered losses as a result of foreign exchange manipulation, the team at Wellers can assist you in making a claim to recover losses.
