Our aim is to cost effectively resolve business disputes in a short amount of time and to keep our clients out of court where appropriate. We represent clients in the UK and abroad across a variety of industries.


Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)


When possible, our business dispute resolution team help clients to resolve their disputes using alternative dispute resolution (ADR). ADR is an effective method of resolving business disputes without the use of any formal court proceedings. Alternative dispute resolution can reduce the amount of time needed to settle a legal dispute and is a cost-effective resolution method.

Alternative dispute resolution methods typically include mediation, arbitration and informal negotiations.

  • Mediation involves a mediator who encourages both parties to come to a settlement.
  • Arbitration is a formal resolution method in which an arbitrator will make a decision based on the evidence that both parties provide.
  • Informal negotiations can be entered into at any time when both parties negotiate an agreement to settle.


Our business dispute resolution team will analyse your legal case and discuss any options available to you, as well as advise you on how you should proceed.



Court Litigation


If your legal dispute cannot be resolved through alternative dispute resolution methods, then your case may be taken through the court litigation process. If this happens, our skilled commercial litigation lawyers have substantial experience representing our clients in all levels of court, including the Court of Appeal and the High Court.


How can South Bank Legal assist?


Our dispute resolution solicitors handle a range of disputes, ranging from complex breach of contract claims and shareholder disputes to debt recovery proceedings on behalf of businesses.

In cases small or large, we consider that it is vital to control the costs of litigation to ensure that perspective is not lost and that legal costs do not grow out of proportion to what is at stake.

Our client profile is diverse. As dispute resolution solicitors, we have represented political parties, government regulators and financial institutions. We are equally at home when pursuing the rights of individuals against large businesses, where a tenacious approach can more than even up the balance of power.
