Commercial Law

In business, as in normal life, conflicts and disputes are likely to arise.

We at Cantillons Solicitors have a team of highly trained experienced litigators who are ready to assist you with any commercial problem you encounter. We use our experience to achieve the optimal result for our clients, whether through negotiation, settlement, court hearing, arbitration, alternative dispute resolution or mediation.

In order to resolve a commercial dispute, several skills are required. Dispute resolution requires a focused approach to solving the problem, a carefully planned litigation strategy, the flexibility to respond to new developments and strong negotiation skills.

Whether you are an individual, a small, medium or large company, or a sole trader, Cantillons Solicitors will provide a fully comprehensive legal service covering every aspect of dispute resolution and commercial litigation. We provide legal advice for directors, shareholders (both minority and majority), partnerships, limited companies and sole traders. If litigation is unavoidable, we provide an efficient service in the Commercial Court, the High Court, the Circuit Court or the District Court depending on your company’s needs.

The Commercial Court has been in existence since 2004 and has earned a reputation for a practical and no-nonsense approach to Commercial Litigation. We at Cantillons Solicitors will take a similar approach to your commercial disputes. The Commercial Court Rules define commercial proceedings as “proceedings in respect of a claim or counterclaim for damages where the value of the claim is not less than one million euro” arising from or related to commercial matters. The most striking feature of the Commercial Court is the speed with which a case can progress to a hearing date.

Cantillons successfully defended a firm of Solicitors against whom the biggest professional claim, ever, was brought in the Commercial Court.

Cantillons Solicitors realise that the speed and efficiency of the Commercial Court has a very significant impact on litigation tactics. We believe that the Commercial Court is an excellent forum in which to litigate complex litigation matters which require expeditious resolution.

We will deal with all aspects of claims that have affected your business or financial matters:

  • Commercial Litigation
  • Advice to Professionals
  • Consumer Litigation
  • Insurance Disputes
  • Judicial Review
  • Debt Collection
  • Contractual Disputes
  • Shareholders Disputes
  • Partnership Disputes
  • Directors Disputes

Contact us at Cantillons Solicitors at +353 (0)21 -4275673 or if you would like more information.

* In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage of any award or settlement.
