Commercial litigation strategy

A good dispute resolution strategy will take into account not just the law and the evidence but many other factors.  The basics are:

  • Strength of the evidence;
  • Likely legal costs if you win or lose;
  • Tactics and timing – in most cases there will be a strategic opportunity to reach a settlement. Understanding when that time is and having the right negotiation strategy and experience are crucial;
  • Can the case be settled?

Go to court or Alternative Dispute Resolution? 

Usually, you will be best served to agree a commercial settlement with the opponent and Alternative Dispute Resolution such as mediation or arbitration are a useful tool to encourage an out of court settlement.

Before deciding to sue, you will need in many cases to check underlying contracts which may include clauses requiring some form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) or mediation. The UK courts also in many situations require parties to try dispute resolution before formal court litigation.

Tactics, timing and intelligent use of court and/or other dispute resolution processes generally not only save on costs but also bring finality to the dispute. Settlement can be reached at any time before or during the court litigation process.

A good commercial litigation solicitor works to create the right conditions to encourage the opponent to want to settle.
