Whether you are a big business, a private company or a sole trader, disputes in the commercial world are inevitable. Dealing with those disputes in a cost effective manner is crucial to the ongoing survival of any business. From a legal point of view, being able to understand and deal with those disputes in an efficient way has never been more important given the tough economic climate. At Clarke Jeffers we combine our expertise in business law, civil litigation and alternative dispute resolution to ensure that our clients receive the most experienced and strongest possible representation.
In line with our stated objective to be forward thinking and to protect the long term objectives of our clients, Clarke Jeffers have invested significant resources into the area of alternative dispute resolution. Litigation through the courts is no longer seen as the only way of settling such disputes. Arbitration, mediation and negotiation offer fast, private and in many cases, less expensive methods of dealing with such problems. Our experienced solicitors can quickly assess the nature of the dispute and advise on whether alternative dispute resolution would be suitable.
In situations where alternative dispute resolution is not suitable or practical, Clarke Jeffers offer over 70 years’ experience in commercial litigation through the courts. Our team tackles these cases with vigour and a sound knowledge of the law. We have represented clients at every level of the court system including the commercial court and have forged a strong reputation in this area. We understand business and the need for strong, fast, reliable results.
