How We Can Help

At P.A. Duffy & Co Solicitors we have experience in dealing with all types of contract disputes. Our commercial solicitors encounter disputes in service and distribution contracts, licensing contracts and construction contracts on a regular basis.

Our approach is to provide expert advice to our clients on their rights and obligations under a contract and to advise them of possible remedies to resolve disputes. The most common remedy is to sue another party for breach of contract. This can be an effective way of recovering losses that your company may have incurred as a result of a contractual dispute.

We can also explore other remedies with our clients which avoid litigation. Each case will be different, but this can sometimes be a more cost-effective approach for our clients.
