Business Disputes

At some point or another, it’s likely that your business will be faced with a dispute. Be it between director and shareholder or your company and a client, business disputes can escalate easily and end up costing you valuable time and money. That’s why our team of commercial litigation solicitors are here for you: to provide strategic advice and secure a satisfying outcome as quickly and efficiently as possible. At Dutton Gregory, our solicitors in Bournemouth are skilled in all methods of dispute resolution. So, if the conflict cannot be resolved through mediation, you can count on us to support and represent you through court and ensure that resolution comes with no unnecessary added time.


With employment law in a constant state of flux, it’s vital for you as an employer to keep up to date to changes in legislation. However, with the everyday pressures of running a business piling up, it can be easy to forget. That’s where we come in. Our employment law solicitors are dedicated to keeping your business compliant, so not only will we keep you up to date – we will also identify how any changes will affect your company and find tailored solutions that meet your requirements. Where disputes arise, our employment solicitors in Bournemouth will be here to protect your interests and find resolution.

As well as this, we also act for employees facing unfair treatment in the workplace. Whether you are facing harassment, abuse, discrimination or unfair dismissal, you can rely on our team to protect your statutory rights – be it through mediation or litigation.


Part of running a successful business is about choosing the right premises for you to operate from. However, it’s not always easy to identify the risks and opportunities that come with property. Our specialist team of property solicitors have the experience necessary to ensure that your premises meets your commercial requirements. With an approach founded on strong technical and negotiating skills, Dutton Gregory are capable of driving successful and smooth transactions on all types of property including offices, retail, leisure, licensed premises and agricultural.

Further to this, our firm has been helping individuals to buy and sell property with ease for a vast number of years. From offer through to completion, our residential property lawyers in Bournemouth are committed to guiding you through your property transaction with ease, and we’ll always keep you updated with each new development.


If you and your partner have made the decision to separate, your first move should be to seek specialist legal advice from a qualified family law solicitor. Due to the emotions involved, disputes between couples can escalate easily when agreements can’t be reached regarding children, property and financial assets. That’s why our team of family solicitors in Bournemouth are here to guide you through negotiation and protect your interests. We know that divorce or dissolution is stressful enough as it is without having to face courtroom confrontation with your partner. With vast experience in family mediation, you can rely on us to get you through the process as efficiently and painlessly as possible; actively promoting solutions that meet your personal requirements.

Personal Injury

If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, there’s a chance that you will be due compensation from the other party. Be it a slip or fall in the workplace or a road traffic accident, a specialist solicitor will be able to assess whether or not your personal injury claim is viable. When you instruct Dutton Gregory, our personal injury solicitors in Bournemouth will be completely dedicated in building your claim and securing the compensation you deserve.

Where negotiation fails to achieve this outcome, we will not hesitate to use litigation to ensure you receive a fair settlement.
