Dispute Resolution

 

Commercial Disputes

We can advise on contractual disputes, shareholder disputes, partnership disputes as well as issues with directors and employees.

 

Commercial Contracts

We can assist clients with the interpretation, preparation and negotiation of commercial contracts, including terms and conditions of business, collaboration/joint venture agreements and agreements with contractors and consultants.

Coronavirus

Our employment team has received (and continues to receive) a large number of requests for help from companies who would like assistance with interpreting the ongoing changes to the furlough scheme and/or who are advance planning for when the furlough scheme comes to an end.  Some of this planning may involve consideration of short-time working or even redundancies and some involves dealing with specific concerns that returning employees may have about health and safety or about childcare and other obligations.

We have produced a number of factsheets for our employer clients which explain the Government guidance and which provide some practical guidance on how to deal with some of these matters.

If you have any specific queries about ending your furlough scheme or need any assistance with restructuring your business in light of the ongoing economic difficulties caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, please e-mail Steve Walker at s.walker@livingstons.co.uk or Gail Black at g.black@livingstons.co.uk.

Full details of how we are dealing with Coronavirus are available here.

We will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum during this difficult time.
