Commercial Dispute Resolution

"Guildhall Chambers is a standout set on the Western Circuit whose barristers possess an extensive body of commercial expertise."

Guildhall Chambers is known nationally for its expertise across all areas of Commercial Dispute Resolution work.

Regarded by Chambers & Partners as a “standout set on the Western Circuit whose barristers possess an extensive body of commercial expertise”, our barristers represent clients ranging from individuals and SMEs to household brands and international corporations in a wide range of commercial disputes. We represent clients across the UK and, whilst proud of our home in the southwest, appear as often in London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds and Manchester as we do our local courts.

What sets us apart from other sets is the way in which members of the team specialise in certain types of commercial dispute resolution work, be it professional negligence, financial services, shareholder disputes, fraud/conspiracy, or more general breach of contract and breach of warranty claims.

As well as appearing in the County Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and above, our barristers also appear in adjudications, arbitrations (including ICC Arbitrations) and other types of alternative dispute resolution.
