Commercial litigation is a contentious dispute between businesses or a business and an individual. Typical examples of cases that fall under the heading of Commercial Litigation are partnership disputes, banking and finance litigation, property litigation, employment disputes and debt collection.
Commercial litigation can best be avoided by ensuring that all terms are covered by written contract or are otherwise covered in written communications. Where terms are orally agreed a dispute is more likely to go to court or settle on unfavourable terms due to the uncertainty in establishing the terms of an agreement. With this in mind it is of paramount importance to seek the advice of a commercial lawyer specialising in drafting contracts.

Their advice has covered a range of areas including property transactions, litigation matters, corporate tax and shareholders issues. Through out this time, Stripes have proved to be proactive, client focused and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to other companies.”

Originally we placed our case to recoup losses from a Builder who claimed that they had run out of finance and were unable to complete the contract we had to self fund the completion of the work.
We approached a Solicitor’s practice and they advised that after many months are investigation they felt that the builder could not repay the amount. We approached Stripes and they offered a no win no fee approached and we accepted.
Immediately they began proceedings against the Builder and they Court accepted the Claim and the Builder agreed to pay off the debt. Since then we have had a full settlement which Stripes concluded on our behalf.
