If your organisation has become embroiled in a director dispute, it can create significant disruption to your ability to do business normally, making it impossible to push key decisions forward and potentially damaging the reputation of the entire company.
Because company disputes between directors can be complex on both a legal and personal level, effective dispute resolution requires legal advice from solicitors with plenty of experience in dealing with cases like this. If your organisation is in this position, the dispute resolution solicitors at Clough & Willis can provide the guidance you need.
Our commercial law team can demonstrate proven expertise in handling company disputes in practice, and understand all aspects of the law pertaining to commercial dispute resolution. Our focus will be on bringing the conflict to a conclusion in a timely manner, with as little disruption to your organisation as possible.

The importance of effective company dispute resolution
If you are involved in a company dispute, it is essential that you seek legal advice as soon as possible to minimise the impact of the conflict on the effective running of the organisation.
This is particularly important given the changing duties and obligations imposed by company law, especially since the introduction of the Companies Act 2006 created new complexities to the legislative system, as well as a framework for ministers to make further changes.
Getting the right legal advice is therefore crucial for any company that runs into a legal dispute and wishes to resolve it efficiently, in a way that is compliant with all the current regulations. By exploring alternative dispute resolution methods, even complex cases can be resolved with a minimum of fuss.
