Commercial Contract Disputes

Commercial contracts are a vital component to businesses, ensuring that the rights and obligations of a business towards its customers and clients are fully recorded and the business complies with what it has promised to do.

Whilst commercial contract claims offer a remedy if a business breaches the terms of the contract, if disputes arise regarding the actual contract itself and the terms which have been breached, the situation can soon get out of control and legal advice can be vital.

Contractual disputes can vary significantly, from minor disagreements over terms and conditions in a standard contract to a complex dispute in a more bespoke contract, so it helps to have the advice and guidance of someone experienced in dealing with these matters.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.

Easements: when could an interference arise with my ability to exercise a right of way?

The recent case of Vance & Vance v Collerton & Collerton has illustrated that if it is not unreasonable to insist on the continued luxury of a widely granted right of way, an actionable interference will occur even if the person benefiting from the right is left with reasonable access.
