Commercial litigation – our expertise
The commercial litigation lawyers at Wilford Smith can take instruction on a comprehensive range of commercial disputes. From sole traders and start-up to multinational enterprises, we can provide clear, pragmatic legal support that is tailored to meet your needs.
Our litigation team can offer insight and strategic thinking, alongside skills in negotiation and mediation, to help achieve settlement quickly.

We can support you in recovering outstanding sums owed quickly and effectively, taking all necessary steps to pursue your debtor, including the drafting of Letters of Claim and Letters Before Action.
