In an increasingly regulated, high speed business environment it is difficult to avoid disputes arising. Managing a dispute well can save your business time and money. Our Dispute Resolution team makes a point of understanding the needs of our clients - not just their legal ones, but commercial too.

Our lawyers are known for being pragmatic, innovative and with a strong emphasis on problem solving. We have the skills, experience and resource to provide a first class, wide ranging and refreshingly jargon-free Dispute Resolution service to private and public sector clients.

We set great store by the value of a strong commercial understanding of the business background to the dispute. Geldards has a wealth of experience in key business sectors and we have developed an in-depth knowledge of the automotive, biotech and life sciences, construction, technology, transport energy and utilities sectors.

We will always work hard to find suitable solutions, and where we can, steer a clear path away from costly and time-consuming litigation be it through negotiation, mediation or expert determination. However, if litigation or arbitration are unavoidable, our team will guide you through the process in a way that’s best for you and your business.
