Commercial solicitors Oxford
The role of a commercial solicitor is to assist in the drafting and negotiation of business contracts and business transactions or to help resolve commercial disputes that may arise. Commercial solicitors usually have a specialist practice area within commercial law.
A commercial solicitor’s duties are dependent on the area the commercial lawyer works in. Generally, their transactional work focuses on protecting their client’s business interests when they enter into business agreements and identifying any potential risks that may cause issues further down the line.
Commercial solicitors often create contracts that are necessary for projects and ventures with other companies and employees. Commercial lawyers often spend a great deal of time researching matters regarding commercial law. This is because the laws and regulations are ever-changing and can impact a business, even when the business owner has agreed on terms previously.
Commercial solicitors try to keep commercial matters away from the courtroom as much as possible, and they use various resolution tactics in order to achieve this.

The first stage of dispute resolution involves the commercial lawyers that are acting for both parties to enter into correspondence with the other party. This correspondence will then help to determine the best option of ADR for the commercial law case.
Alternative dispute resolution methods are often more time-efficient. These methods can be more successful at taking all parties’ business interests into account whilst being cost effectively appropriate. Alternative dispute resolution can also offer a chance for the parties involved to repair their business relationship for their own mutual benefit.
If these methods prove to be unsuccessful, our commercial dispute solicitors have the experience needed to guide you through the court proceedings and represent your case in the courtroom.
We work closely with companies to manage different business interests and avoid disputes arising. Our commercial lawyers can arrange for settlement where viable and present arguments and motions before courts if the commercial case proceeds into court litigations.
