Company and Commercial
Chambers is notable for its provision of expert commercial and business solutions to disputes that span the gamut of industries, law, courts and geography. Our members are as likely to appear in the Commercial Court and the Chancery Division as they are in the lower courts throughout the country, in disputes arising out of commercial, trade, banking and financial services contracts. Chambers’ experts are highly adaptive, and can manage and advise on a wide range of attendant litigation, spanning everything from credit-hire to fraud and libel. The expertise, versatility and experience of Chambers encompasses all areas of commercial life inside and out of the jurisdiction, and facilitates creative and efficient problem-solving prior to and during the litigation process. Chambers is able to respond at short notice to urgent matters, and members can attend as required for clients making (or opposing) applications for injunctive relief. In addition, mediation now plays an increasingly important part in commercial dispute resolution, and Chambers is renowned for its extensive ADR skill and experience.
Company law is an important aspect of Chambers’ work. Our company team covers all aspects of company law – including mergers and acquisitions, regulatory requirements, company meetings, directors’ duties, s.994 shareholder disputes, derivative actions, and numerous other areas in which issues of company law arise. The Companies Act 2006 transformed the exercise of company law, and Chambers is well placed to deal with the many and various issues arising from this rapidly evolving legislation, and its intersection with commercial, financial and insolvency law. Chambers’ company law specialists approach litigation as a means to an end, however, and they are equally equipped to advise on, and achieve, efficient commercial solutions through the use of ADR, mediation, and early neutral evaluation.
