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.

What our Clients say

Star Star Star Star Star

“Thank you to Grant McCall, Laura Lynn and AMD Solicitors for the conveyancing work you recently carried out for the purchase of our house.

Your team were incredibly efficient and quick to get the process started, and as first time buyers who hadn’t been through the process before, were consistently patient and helpful in answering our numerous questions. Likewise, we were also very grateful for the advice and guidance Laura and her team gave to us about matters which we otherwise wouldn’t have considered or even known about.

As testament to the service provided the sale went through without any issues, and we have been very happily living there since, the perfect home for my wife and I and our small baby who arrived a short time after completion.

Since moving in, I have recommended AMD to a number of other friends, all of whom have been equally impressed with your service, and I will continue to do so. I look forward to working with yourself and AMD for all of our family matters over the years.”

“Thank goodness for Laura Lynn and Amanda Easton. Both were absolutely incredible during my flat sale and house purchase. Calm in the face of some extremely challenging moments and proactive in pushing things through to a successful completion. They kept me fully informed throughout and made sure I understood what was going on at every stage. I am so very grateful that I selected AMD and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them”.
