DISPUTE RESOLUTION / LITIGATION
Commercial disputes can be a real distraction from your business, but it’s essential to give the matter early consideration to prevent escalation. Our legal experts can help you with the demands of commercial disputes, providing practical advice and assistance at every step. If the case has no basis, we can apply to the court to get it thrown out, preventing you from wasting valuable time on your defence.
We will provide unbiased and honest advice on your dispute, and can carry out mediation to prevent a time-consuming trial. This can prevent the dispute from becoming acrimonious but where needed, we can support you with a court trial.

Are you struggling with commercial disputes and contractual disagreements? We can help with our expert legal litigation and dispute resolution service.
Commercial disputes can be very disruptive to your business which is why dispute resolution is such an essential service. Understanding and managing the risks are key, along with protecting your reputation and minimising any impact on continuing operations.
Commercial dispute resolution
Every business enters into contracts, and some proceed more easily than others. It’s an unfortunate fact that occasionally there are some contracts which don’t quite go as planned.
Defaults or disagreement about the underlying terms and common causes which may require eventual litigation if no resolution can be found.
We understand that you may strongly prefer to try and resolve matters amicably, especially if you are trying to preserve the working relationship. We can offer mediation and negotiation to try and achieve a mutually acceptable resolution to the dispute.

WHY CARTER BOND
Unlike many law firms when we say partner or barrister led, we mean partner or barrister led. When clients work with us, they get constant access to the lead on their instruction. Yes, we have a team of solicitors and juniors for some of the groundwork and necessary research required by our clients, but this is when it makes financial sense to the client for us to do this. We provide constant contact at no extra cost as part of our service as most of our lawyers have their own business, so they know first-hand how important having a proactive, responsible and trusted partner on their side can be. And also how to work to a financial budget, and the way that legal decisions impact the wider organisation, which often requires balancing risks and competing interests.
Many ask us ‘what’s different about you?’ and we like to reply, ‘because we go the extra mile’. We see our work as building and maintaining good business relationships rather than just earning fees. How we do this is by keeping in constant contact with our clients and intermediaries. From pre to post instruction we ensure that our clients are informed of all legal issues that may impact their business and therefore lives. That is why we provide daily or weekly updates to ALL of our clients whether there is anything to tell them or not (we don’t charge for this we just see it as part of our service). We like our clients to rest peacefully knowing that when we are instructed, and we say ‘we will take it from here’ they know we mean it.
City quality, outer City fees
The world is changing, and many individuals are realising that lifestyle is as vital to them as is income. We are the lucky ones who can hand pick lawyers who can provide the best quality advice but at outer city costs. Our offices are in North West London which may not be the most salubrious in the market but at the same time this allows us to charge our clients for what they pay for, our advice NOT our office space.
ALL our lawyers have previously worked in large city-based law firms and continue to practise and offer the same high level service they provided to clients in the City but without the pressure and demands often dictated by City law firm. This allows us to be competitive on our fees without compromising our service.
All in all, our clients win, which is the way we like it.
Our knowledge and resources are yours
All our clients benefit from the same high level of care and attention whether the instruction is big or small. At the outset of each matter, we discuss the entire process with our clients, including the costs, potential outcomes and issues associated. This is to ensure clients are fully aware, knowledgeable and are in control always. Supporting and ensuring we provide the highest level of services, we offer our constant contact process with the partner or barrister leading your file, a document log in for matters which are for larger and more complicated instructions and on-going support post transaction should our clients require it. Our aim is not just to get the work done, but to make our clients’ lives easier as we do it, which is why we ensure that our clients have regular access to the resources they need from us.
