Commercial Property Disputes

Commercial property is an important asset to most businesses. However, businesses that deal with commercial property are also exposed to the risk of disputes. These vary in type, but include: allegations of a breach of planning law in the development of new premises; suspected failures by contractors to honour their obligations to developers under construction contracts; and, ambiguity concerning where responsibility lies for the upkeep and maintenance of business premises. Legal action concerning commercial property can be complicated and costly to resolve. The support of a legal team that is skilled in interpreting complicated legal contracts, and that understands the need to protect the business, will be highly advantageous in commercial property litigation.

Commercial Property Disputes Lawyers Dublin

Commercial litigation, regardless as to the kind, can have a significant impact on a business. It will be exposed to fairly rigid processes that do not reflect the realities of operating in the commercial world. Furthermore, it will also have to shoulder the costs involved: not only the financial but also the time required to resolve a situation via formal legal action. This can divert important resources away from a business, if not handled carefully. It is vital that when the prospect of commercial litigation is being considered, the assistance of legal advisors who understand what is involved and who will be effective in conducting litigation is sought.

At Sherwin O’Riordan, we understand that our clients will rarely pursue litigation where it can be avoided. The involvement of the courts is not always conducive to the quick resolution of a dispute. However, in certain instances, there will be no option other than litigation, either because the business becomes subject to, or must commence, legal proceedings.

Our team of commercial litigators believe that it is important to understand the needs of our clients, and their motivations for pursuing litigation. We use our considerable knowledge and experience of the courts, and of the substantive law to represent our clients’ interests, and secure the best outcome possible for them. Our lawyers will work in partnership with you when conducting litigation on your behalf: you will be given regular updates on the progress of your case, given detailed advice as to your options in each particular situation and will enjoy legal advice that respects your business’s commercial interests. If you are worried about litigation, or are perhaps considering bringing a matter to the attention of the courts, contact the commercial litigation team at Sherwin O’Riordan today.
