Commercial Disputes

Maitland is instructed in a wide range of commercial disputes, whether destined for the Commercial Court or the Chancery Division in London, overseas courts, or domestic or international arbitral tribunals.

We have experience of handling commercial disputes within a wide range of sectors including banking & financial services, private equity, funds and investment management, real estate, telecommunications, energy, media and technology, and transport and logistics.

Our breadth of commercial litigation expertise ranges from discrete claims arising out of, for example, sale of goods transactions, to banking disputes and large-scale, multi-party litigation in connection with matters such as investment schemes, business sales and joint ventures. We are recognised for our ability to provide advice and representation against the appropriate regulatory backdrop in financial services disputes.

We also have wide-ranging experience of disputes raising complex issues of jurisdiction (which court or tribunal should decide the dispute) and applicable law (which law should be applied in deciding the dispute).

Our acknowledged expertise in other complementary areas of law, such as company and partnership law, civil fraud, professional negligence, trusts and estates, real property and insolvency yields dividends in complex commercial cases.
