No matter how well you run your business, sometimes taking, or defending yourself against, legal action is unavoidable. In those circumstances you need commercial litigation solicitors who can provide expert and impartial legal advice to help you decide on the course of action, which is most likely to help you achieve the result you need.

Whether you are looking to start court proceedings against someone else or are preparing your defence from an action brought against you, our team of Commercial Litigation Solicitors in Bristol can provide you with expert support and legal guidance throughout the whole process.


Commercial disputes can often quickly escalate and due to their nature are critical in being dealt with quickly and by a commercially minded team to achieve the best possible result. We can assist with litigation and dispute resolution for a wide range of commercial disputes. Our team currently deal with a variety of disputes including

  • Partnership disputes
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Disputes with/between directors
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Insolvency disputes
  • Intellectual property disputes
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Debt recovery


If you wish to bring a claim we will work with you to ensure that this is done in the correct way, giving you the best chance of success. We will advise you on whether we believe your claim is strong enough to proceed. We will then draft a letter before action/letter of claim with all supporting documentation to begin the claim process. We can negotiate on your behalf with the other side. We will run your claim up until a final hearing and instruct a barrister to attend court if necessary. We can help you deal with any issues surrounding the final judgement and its enforcement, including lodging appeals.


If an action has been brought against you, our litigation solicitors can help you build your defence, negotiate on your behalf and defend you in court if things progress that far. We will attempt to resolve the matter outside of court. This is often a cheaper, faster and less stressful option for everyone involved. Where settlement is not possible, we will run your defence up to a final hearing and instruct a barrister to attend court if necessary.


Throughout your litigation process we will attempt to negotiate a settlement with the other side. Where appropriate, we can work with all involved parties to attempt to reach a successful resolution without going to court. We have a number of trained dispute resolution experts on our team that have experience in attending mediation.

However, if court action is the best or only option, our solicitors have a strong track record of making strategic part 36 offers that achieve favourable costs outcomes for our clients.


Our team of highly experienced litigation solicitors have substantial experience of dealing with both commercial and civil litigation. We will work closely with you at every step of the process to ensure you are always completely informed and able to make decisions which best reflect your interests. We will also keep you abreast of all expenditures as we progress to help you keep a handle on the financial aspects of the situation.

If you need expert legal advice on starting or defending yourself against commercial litigation, call us today on 0117 962 1205. Alternatively, you can email our new enquiry team.

“We had the good fortune to meet Sarah Burgess who took on our probate case and handled it in an exemplary manner at all times. She has been totally professional to everyone concerned and gave us immensely helpful advice, guidance and support throughout. AMD Solicitor’s fees were very fair and reasonable and Sarah kept all communications on point, never indulging in unnecessary work which would have resulted in unnecessary expense.
Sarah is a credit to her profession and has helped us through a very difficult time.
I thoroughly recommend AMD Solicitors, especially Sarah Burgess at their Shirehampton office.”
