Stronachs Logo

Stronachs’ dispute resolution team is led by an expert group of litigators with vast experience at every level of the court system, and also alternative forms of dispute resolution. Able to advise on Scots and English law, we are focussed on achieving efficient, cost-effective results through preventive steps and, where necessary, formal action – in Scotland, the wider UK, or internationally.

We act for major oil and gas organisations and supply chain companies, construction and engineering leaders and SMEs, as well as partnerships and individuals.

We have a significant track record in the resolution of commercial disputes, involving businesses from a range of sectors, including energy and construction, landlords, tenants and property investors.

Our team has in-depth experience of managing and pursuing debt recovery proceedings and sensitive personal litigation situations involving matters such as family disputes, pre and post-nuptial disputes, cohabitation as well as personal injury and damages claims. We are committed to minimising disruption for our clients and achieving the best possible outcome.

In any scenario, Stronachs’ dispute resolution team will effectively manage risk and conflict, representing clients’ interests in a cost-effective and highly efficient manner whether at mediation, inquiry, arbitration or through the courts.
