Complex Commercial Litigation and Disputes

For any business around the globe, commercial disputes can present an array of serious issues if not addressed swiftly, efficiently, and cost-effectively. Commercial disputes can jeopardize profitability, reputation, and sometimes the very existence of a business.

Our approach to commercial disputes is straight-forward: Quickly learn the cause and parameters of the dispute, work proactively with the client to develop a desired outcome and a strategy to achieve that outcome, and then make it happen. Our commercial disputes team of more than 450 lawyers in Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States has the breadth, depth of experience, and sophistication to advise on all aspects of external risk management and to successfully address even the most complex and difficult engagements.

Our complex commercial litigation and disputes practice has tremendous capabilities and a powerful platform to handle “must-win” business disputes. We are well-equipped to take on the most complex and difficult engagements anywhere, anytime around the globe. Representing both plaintiffs and defendants, we litigate the full spectrum of commercial disputes. The breadth of our experience is reflected not merely in the geographic and substantive span of our work, but also in the industries in which we regularly practice. We have litigated and arbitrated cases in almost every industry and market sector.

The beginning of a case can often be the most critical stage. We employ our own early case assessment techniques to help our clients develop creative dispute resolution strategies, often leading to win-win outcomes. From pre-litigation settlement success stories to wins before tribunals, trial judges, juries, and appellate courts, our commercial disputes lawyers start and finish each client’s case focused on the specific course of action that will yield the optimal outcome.

Our dispute resolution lawyers are recognized as being some of the foremost practitioners in their field. Many are ranked internationally and include fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, the American Law Institute, and the International Academy of Trial Lawyers. BTI Consulting Group’s annual Litigation Outlook survey named K&L Gates as a “Standout” in the Complex Commercial Litigation and Routine Commercial Litigation categories.

While we are prepared to advocate for our clients if they find themselves in a commercial dispute, we recognize that litigation or arbitration is not the answer to every dispute. When appropriate, we work with our clients to help them resolve their disputes through negotiated settlements, mediation, or other business-focused alternative dispute resolution techniques.
