Commercial disputes and litigation

Commercial litigation in the Chancery Division or Commercial Court is the backbone of much of the work and experience of Three Stone and we are as familiar with interim applications as with trials. Members  are equally frequently asked to advise and represent clients in commercial disputes resolved by way of arbitration or mediation.

Our work covers the widest range of commercial disputes including those concerning insurance and reinsurance, international and national contracts for the sale or supply of goods, distribution agreements.
