Your Friend-in-Law, Resolving Commercial Business Disputes


Dorset Commercial Litigation Solicitors, Harold G Walker is committed to supporting local businesses by providing practical legal advice.

Often when people think of litigation, they think of lawyers taking claims to court or defending claims brought against their clients. However, due to the cost and damage to business relationships that occur during court battles, dispute resolution is often used. This involves negotiating between parties to reach a solution, often through the means of mediation.

Hugh Storry Deans, Partner and Head of the Dispute Resolution team has experience in dealing with high value and complex commercial cases, regularly acting for both large enterprises and small start-ups. Over 35-years in practice, Hugh has dealt with a diverse range of matters and has built an esteemed reputation for delivering straight forward, commercially sound and practical legal advice.

“Harold G Walker Solicitors work with clients to find the best possible resolution”, comments Hugh. “Due to frequent changes to law and practice, it is important that businesses seek the advice from a specialist Solicitor.”

Disputes can arise from any contractual transaction between different companies or between companies and individuals. Harold G Walker Solicitors advise on various commercial disputes, including:

Contractual Disputes
All consumer disputes, debt recovery and business contract breaches which we aim to resolve quickly, minimalizing the cost and disruption to your business.

Defamation
