Whether handled internally or through solicitors, commercial disputes can be hugely disruptive to a company and can take up substantial management time. Specialist advice is therefore invaluable in analysing and resolving a dispute quickly in order to release a company to continue to trade without distraction. Naturally, a well-handled negotiation will also keep down costs as brewing disputes are pro-actively and sensitively resolved before they can develop.
We offer a full commercial litigation and dispute resolution service, from a pre-litigation assessment on the merits of a case and representation through Alternative Dispute Resolution procedures, to issuing legal proceedings through the County Court, High Court and Tribunal, as appropriate. We are contract litigation specialists with years of experience of interpreting and enforcing our clients’ rights under commercial contracts.
Matt and Niki are fantastic lawyers. They not only have a wide and detailed understanding of the legal areas that they specialise in, but are also great strategic thinkers. They have become an important part of our company and their prompt response is always on point. I would recommend Howat Avraam Solicitors without any reservations and wish Matt and Niki a long and continued success.

Niki Avraam is a superb employment lawyer and has given us very good advice over the years. As a firm they are astute, commercially aware people who demonstrate care and professionalism in all that they do.
I am very pleased with the service from Howat Avrraam Solicitors. Frezyderm UK
Niki was a wonderful support at a time I really needed expert legal advice. She ensured a fair outcome and was always available for discussions about my case. I can't recommend Niki highly enough.
I needed urgent legal support on an employment settlement aggreement and their swift response and concise professional opinion and recomendation really took the pressure off.
Howat Avraam Solicitors’ proposition to effectively be our in-house legal team was precisely what we needed as a start-up company. From Company registration to a Shareholders’ Agreement, Company Secretarial duties, advice on Board structure, commercial contracts from office leases to aircraft acquisition and, remarkably, Directors’ and Staff employment contracts, all under one roof! They are totally professional and easy to deal with and I believe that this is the future of legal support. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Selling the company that I founded 20 years ago was a stressful experience but Matthew, Niki and their team couldn’t have done more to ease the process. Their personal and no-nonsense approach demystified the legal process and got the job done with minimal fuss.
