What is litigation?
Litigation – or dispute resolution – is the process of appointing law professionals to resolve disputes in court in the hope of obtaining compensation for damages. There are a variety of litigation claims that can be made, although they all fall under two major categories – civil litigation and commercial litigation.
What is civil litigation?
This type of legal procedure involves a dispute between two or more parties, where one side requires financial reimbursement and cannot obtain it without court intervention. There are numerous types of civil litigation claims, although at Prosperity Law we specialise in the following:

What is commercial litigation?
This form of litigation is an umbrella term for any dispute resolution claims that arise within a corporate context. There are numerous commercial disputes that businesses can become embroiled in, which is why our expert commercial litigation solicitors can assist with the following:
Contract breach claims
One of the most important components of running a business is drawing up corporate contracts – whether they are for your employees or third-party contractors. It is vital that all parties understand their terms as well as the implications they will face in the event of a contractual breach. This could be anything from simple mistakes or errors within a written contract to disputes regarding an employee’s inability to adhere to the contract’s terms.
If an agreement regarding the breach cannot be resolved within the workplace, then our professional commercial solicitors can step in. Representing your business in the resolution process with the intention to obtain suitable compensation.
Disputed partnership agreements
Most organisations forge partnerships with various associates, as it is beneficial for business growth. However, as with any relationship, disagreements are inevitable – whether it be disputes over property, asset ownership, insolvency issues or something else.

It is relatively common for organisations to experience shareholder disputes. They are usually a result of a conflict of interest – such as disagreements regarding the direction of a business, how it is being managed, or even the conduct of illegal activity. Any of these factors can result in a breakdown in relationships which can be detrimental to business.
