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 of alternative forms of dispute resolution. Disputes are inevitable in business and we are trusted to give the effective and pragmatic advice our clients need to achieve their objectives – whether that’s simply seeking to draw a line under the dispute and move on or fighting in all-important ‘bet the company’ litigation.

Able to advise on Scots and English law, we act for major oil and gas organisations and supply chain companies, construction, technology and engineering leaders and SMEs, as well as for partnerships and individuals. We also have significant experience working with insolvency practitioners on both routine and complex insolvency transactions and claims.

We act for clients right across Scotland, the wider-UK and internationally and we do this cost-effectively from our offices in Aberdeen and Inverness. For our international work, where necessary, we partner with firms in other jurisdictions to make sure our clients receive nothing less than a seamless, first class service from advisors they can trust.
