    Commercial Litigation FAQs

    Commercial litigation is a dispute between businesses where one party issues proceedings in a court against another party or parties. Randle & Taylor are specialists in civil litigation with more than 50 years experience in this area. 

    Common types of business disputes which result in commercial litigation include building and construction disputes, contract disputes, intellectual property litigation, debt recovery, insolvency disputes, and many more.

    Yes, there are alternatives to commercial litigation. There is an informal settlement conference or pre-action meeting where the parties attend a meeting in person with one of our solicitors to try and resolve a dispute before it proceeds to commercial litigation. 

    Mediation is a process where an experienced third party, known as the mediator, acts as an impartial person or umpire to assist the parties to resolve their dispute. 

    Normally the parties share the expense equally of the mediator. In our experience mediation is successful at resolving disputes at least 80% of the time. It is much more affordable than litigation. 

    The cost of litigation is almost impossible to estimate because it depends upon how hard your opponent or your fight and how much time you require us to spend on your matter. After you have provided us with the details of your dispute we will provide you with an estimate of the costs of the litigation. We are required by law to give you updates as to the costs of the litigation.

    In short, the main difference between a dispute and litigation is that litigation is a legal process presented in court, whereas a dispute can be settled through a private process involving a neutral mediator.

    If you are being sued, the first thing you need to do is to immediately seek legal advice because if you do not act urgently your opponent could obtain a judgment in a court against you without further notice and then enforce it against you and your rights could be affected.

    Randle & Taylor Barristers & Solicitors provide legal advice in a variety of areas including contract law, family law, sales of business, building and construction law, conveyancing, drafting agreements, wills and estates, estate litigation, debt collectionproperty law, residential leases and commercial litigation.
