Dispute Resolution

Monro Wright & Wasbrough LLP can help and advise companies as well as individuals on contract disputes, debt recovery, insolvency, bankruptcy and winding up proceedings, professional negligence, professional discipline and partnership disputes.

Because we ensure that we understand our clients’ commercial and individual objectives we work with them to use the appropriate dispute resolution process – including litigation if necessary – to achieve those objectives.  Our team is experienced in acting for parties in disputes in all civil courts in England and Wales.  We can also advise on arbitration, neutral evaluation and mediations.  Annabel Clark is an associate of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and a collaborative practitioner and she and Michael Tulloch are trained family mediators.


We can advise both Employers and Employees on all areas of employment disputes including the following:-

  • Compromise Agreements
  • Disciplinary and grievance procedures
  • Employment Tribunal and Court claims

Many employment disputes can be resolved amicably or settled at an early stage but if that proves not to be possible our experience and commercial awareness gives clients the best chance of a favourable outcome.

Commercial Disputes

Members of our team have advised and represented multinational corporations, regulatory bodies, charities, small businesses and individuals in a range of business disputes including breach of contract, boardroom and shareholder disputes, commercial agency disputes and emergency injunction proceedings.

Landlord & Tenant

We can advise both Landlords and Tenants on all disputes including those involving service charges, repairing obligations and possession including making applications to the Residential Property Tribunal (first-tier and upper) or bringing/defending claims in the County Court.


We have extensive experience in dealing with all issues arising from ownership of land and property including trespass, nuisance, insurance claims and neighbour disputes.

LLP and Partnership Disputes

We have extensive experience of advising professionals involved in disputes arising out of businesses organised as limited liability partnerships and old-style partnerships.  Gordon Adam is a member of the Association of Partnership Professionals.

Our approach

Our particular experience and expertise encourages early settlement where this is possible and a speedy and successful outcome where this is not.
