We understand that being involved in any litigation, whether you are a sole owner of a small business or part of a large corporation, can be costly and time consuming.
The inevitable drain on time and finances is disruptive to businesses and is immensely worrying no matter how large your business may be. With this in mind, our approach to commercial litigation is to successfully conclude any action in the most cost and time efficient manner possible.
In line with the message regularly given by the Jersey courts to litigants, we advise our clients to explore alternative dispute resolution, for example by way of mediation or settlement meetings. We have strong connections with specialised mediators and have a successful track record of settling our cases outside of the court procedure. Advice to clients on when to explore alternative dispute resolution is vital and we will always provide clear and candid advice as to the merits of pursuing a case so clients can make informed decisions.
Unfortunately, not all cases are capable of settlement outside of Court and when alternative dispute fails, we are recognised as tough opponents with a proven track record of successful clients.
We provide the right advice in all types of commercial litigation, including:
- Competition law.
- Corporate debts.
- Registering and enforcing a foreign judgment.
- Shareholder, director or partnership disputes.
- Shareholder minority, unfair prejudice or derivative actions.
Viberts’ team is in my view impressive. Their partners are first rate, and provide a service on Jersey that is at least the equal of the very top firms operating in comparable areas of law in London.

The team has a strong client-care ethic. They fight hard for plaintiffs whose cases are sometimes borderline, and have in my experience achieved remarkable results in cases that most would consider weak on the merits. Overall, Viberts is in my view a firm of the first rank.
