We provide advisory, drafting and advocacy services on issues arising in commercial, business, corporate and international (cross-border) legal issues.

Our services cover all forms of dispute resolution, from advising and representing litigants in courts and tribunals at all levels, and Commercial Judicial Review public law cases (i.e. litigation) to situations where we act for clients in private mediations and arbitrations (i.e. Alternative Dispute Resolution). 

For more information on Commercial Judicial Review see our section on public law

We have leading expertise in Aviation regulatory matters (i.e. documentation of agreements underpinned by regulatory issues, such as slots exchange agreements, code shares; air traffic light issues under bilateral air services agreements, bonding and licensing rules applicable to travel providers; domestic UK/Irish and European regulatory regime; undertaking regulatory reviews for clients, established carriers and start-ups etc), and also Aviation commercial issues, particularly in relation to aircraft finance and leasing and re-delivery return conditions; aircraft acquisition; cross border loan and lease agreements.

E-commerce and the application of the Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002 is a specialist field where we can provide particular assistance.

We also advise and provide services on non–contentious matters, which in essence means doing legal work other than for the purpose of legal proceedings brought before a court or arbitrator. Such work might include, for instance, the drafting of contractual or other formal documents.

Some members of our Commercial practice group are authors and editors of the Jordans Business Start-Up Pack (Jordan Publishing). The pack provides newly formed businesses with guidance on compliance with regulations and on being alert to legalistic compliance issues in company commercial matters.
