Commercial Dispute Resolution
At IBB, we recognise the importance of understanding your business objectives from the outset. We know that litigation is an unwelcome distraction from your business. We see ourselves as an extension to your organisation, working with you to resolve disputes quickly and cost-effectively, leaving you free to concentrate on more important matters.
Our Commercial Dispute Resolution team has extensive experience of dealing with a wide range of complex claims. It is rated by the Legal 500, an independent guide to the legal profession, as being in the first (top) tier in the region.
We try to settle disputes through negotiation at the earliest possible stage and where appropriate, we encourage the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution processes, including mediation, to achieve swift and cost-effective resolution of disputes. A number of our senior lawyers are ADR Group Accredited Mediators.
Where litigation is necessary, we have the expertise to take the most complex disputes to trial and achieve the best result for you. In all these matters, technically excellent and commercially aware lawyers will give you clear and pragmatic advice. A partner will manage all cases.

The Legal 500 in 2012 says:
“IBB (Iliffes Booth Bennett) acted for Ceridian in a £1m claim arising out of an abandoned outsourcing contract with Somerfield. It also represented Cummins Power Generation in a breach of contract injunction claim involving proceedings in the UK and Pakistan. Paul Kite heads the five-partner team."
