It’s not uncommon for businesses to face disputes at some point during their existence, but well-drafted contracts can help to provide clarity.

Our team of legal experts can mediate in disputes to try and find an amicable resolution that’s acceptable by both parties. If an agreement cannot be reached, we can provide support for full litigation, including taking the case to trial.

We offer practical, solution-focused advice which takes into account likely costs, time, and implications for your business. Our experienced lawyers will achieve the best possible outcome in any dispute, while ensuring that there is a realistic target and expectation at every step.

How we can help

Are you looking for more information about litigation and dispute resolution? Our legal team can help with all aspects of dispute resolution, and litigation if needed.

When you sign a contract, you expect everything to go smoothly but unfortunately this isn’t always the case. Disputes can arise where one party fails to meet their contractual obligations or defaults on the agreement in some way.

This can lead to disputes which can rapidly escalate. We can help by offering expert dispute resolution, and if required, full litigation to achieve a resolution. 

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Although there are some cases where litigation can’t be avoided, it’s advisable to exhaust all possible solutions before pursuing your case through the courts. Litigation can be time-consuming and expensive, and in some cases the dispute can be resolved through alternative methods.

The courts will expect you to have engaged fully with alternative dispute resolution before pursuing legal action and if you fail to do so, you may be penalised. We can assist by providing full alternative dispute resolution services to all types of circumstances.

Some of the types of alternative dispute resolution available include:

  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Adjudication
  • Conciliation
  • Expert determination
  • Neutral evaluation

Arbitration, adjudication and expert determination are closer to private litigation, and may be suitable when you are willing to accept a decision but are unable to reach an agreement between yourselves.

Speedy solutions

We understand the negative repercussions that disputes can have on your business so we help by  delivering speedy resolutions. There could be many different types of disputes which arise, such as not being paid by a client or supplier, or a dispute being a landlord and a tenant. Whatever type of dispute which has arisen, we can assist with legal services that support the best possible outcome.

We can resolve the majority of cases without needing to resort to litigation, providing effective resolution for your business quickly and effectively. If you want to find out more, get in touch with us today.


The Carter Bond Litigation Team specialise in the following sectors:





Partner Led

Unlike many law firms when we say partner or barrister led, we mean partner or barrister led. When clients work with us, they get constant access to the lead on their instruction. Yes, we have a team of solicitors and juniors for some of the groundwork and necessary research required by our clients, but this is when it makes financial sense to the client for us to do this. We provide constant contact at no extra cost as part of our service as most of our lawyers have their own business, so they know first-hand how important having a proactive, responsible and trusted partner on their side can be. And also how to work to a financial budget, and the way that legal decisions impact the wider organisation, which often requires balancing risks and competing interests.

City quality, outer city fees

As the world changes, professionals in our society are realising that lifestyle is as vital to them as income. We are the lucky ones who have hand-picked lawyers who can provide the best quality advice but at outer City costs. Our offices are in North West London, which may not be in the City’s centre but at the same time this gives us two key advantages to set us apart:

  1. It allows us to charge our clients for what they pay for, our advice NOT our office space.


  2. Our staff save time and hassle on commutes which translates into a healthier working environment and more friendly and timely advice delivered to you.

ALL our lawyers have previously worked in large City-based law firms and continue to practise and offer the same high level of service  they provided to clients in the City, but without the pressure and demands often dictated by City law firms. This allows us to be competitive on our fees without compromising our service.

We have made smart decisions about the way we operate, so you can trust us to help you make smart decisions about your matter.

All in all, our clients win, which is the way we like it.

Proactive contact

Many ask us ‘what’s different about you?’ and we like to reply, ‘because we go the extra mile’. We see our work as building and maintaining good business relationships rather than just earning fees. How we do this is by keeping in constant contact with our clients and intermediaries. From pre to post instruction we ensure that our clients are informed of all legal issues that may impact their business and therefore lives. That is why we provide daily or weekly updates to ALL of our clients whether there is anything to tell them or not (we don’t charge for this we just see it as part of our service). We like our clients to rest peacefully knowing that when we are instructed, and we say ‘we will take it from here’ they know we mean it.

Our knowledge and resources are yours

All our clients benefit from the same high level of care and attention whether the instruction is big or small. At the outset of each matter, we discuss the entire process with our clients, including the costs, potential outcomes and issues associated. This is to ensure clients are fully aware, knowledgeable and are in control always. Supporting and ensuring we provide the highest level of services, we offer our constant contact process with the partner or barrister leading  your file, a document log in for matters which are for larger and more complicated instructions and on-going support post transaction should our clients require it. Our aim is not just to get the work done, but to make our clients’ lives easier as we do it, which is why we ensure that our clients have regular access to the resources they need from us.
