David Whiting specialises in all areas of commercial dispute resolution.
He has over 30 years’ experience acting for major companies and high net worth individuals in complex and high value disputes. Having worked at major firms, his clients range from owner-managed businesses such as security agencies and retailers, to NHS trusts, county councils and international PLCs.
He has a particular emphasis on commercial contracts, director/shareholder/partnership disputes, contentious insolvency, statutory demands, as well as debt collection (including bankruptcy and winding up proceedings).
Creative thinking and understanding his clients’ businesses underpin David’s approach to prevent disputes or settle them cost effectively. However, if that cannot be achieved, his experience of court proceedings, arbitration, mediation, expert determination and other forms of alternative dispute resolution will ensure that the dispute is guided to the appropriate forum for a speedy resolution. Often a pre-emptive strike or the maintenance of the status quo is required by seeking an injunction.
