Contract & Misrepresentation Issues

If you were persuaded to sign up to a contract by misrepresentation, or if someone is suggesting that you mis-led them, then Blacks Solicitors’ expert Commercial Dispute Resolution team can help.

Contractual Disputes

Contractual disputes occur all too frequently; no matter how well drafted the original Agreement. Such disputes can cause irreparable damage to individual and business relationships and if not appropriately handled, can significantly impact on the success of a business and cause wasted management time.

At Blacks we will strive to gain an understanding of the commercial environment in which your business operates and will use our experience and skills to work with you to agree an appropriate strategy and resolve any dispute/s as quickly, and as economically, as possible; allowing you to concentrate on running your business.


Misrepresentation is a false statement of fact made by one party to another, which can induce a party to enter into a contract. We have vast experience of dealing with misrepresentation claims arising from the purchase of properties and businesses, as well as other types of contractual agreement.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

We understand that Court proceedings are not always in the best interests of our clients, especially where it is important to preserve a valuable business relationship. We offer a full range of ADR services which enable the resolution of any disputes with as little disruption to your business as possible.

In the event that Court proceedings become necessary, our experienced team can guide you through the whole process and assist in obtaining the best possible outcome.

What our clients say

  • First rate commercial lawyers with good client skills.

    Share this
  • I have found them to be very good at what they do and always willing to ‘dumb down’ anything so that you can fully understand each process along the way.  As I have limited knowledge of legal matters currently, this is really beneficial and has helped me to gain further knowledge just through their explanations and help.

  • It has been a hard two years in terms of money on our part and effort on your part. One thing that sustained us was your indefatigable energy and skills in confronting a determined organisation who did not listen to reason.

  • The quality of the service was excellent. We were kept up to date throughout our one year experience.

    Share this
  • Luke was very personable, professional, measured and met all our expectations. The strategy and tactics he deployed from day one were carefully thought out. He gave us clear and honest advice throughout and informed us of the options available to us at each stage of the litigation. He was able to deliver his “killer blow” at the right time which caused the opponents to come to the table and do a deal.  I would have no hesitation recommending him or using him, and Blacks, should the need ever arise again.

  • As always Luke was at once incisive, caring and comprehensive in providing a legal solution in the most concise and cost-efficient way possible. He is a man of great integrity, sincerity and poise. In my experience, he acts in his client’s best interests always. My go to lawyer.
