Ed Weeks


I am a commercial lawyer who resolves legal disputes for business people and companies.  My particular expertise is in relation to internal company disputes and shareholder disputes.

As head of the commercial dispute resolution team I lead a team of lawyers who are dedicated to resolving disputes for business clients efficiently and cost-effectively and I like to lead by example.

I see my role as being  to identify the legal problem and find a solution. Each client, problem and solution is unique and a fresh and exciting challenge.  I help solve clients’ problems by listening, understanding their aims and objectives and then applying my knowledge of the law and my experience to the problem in hand.  My normal aim will be to avoid court proceedings but where they are required then I will progress them vigorously and tenaciously.

One of the best things someone has ever said about me as a lawyer is that I will always fight a client’s corner but never lose sight of why we are fighting.

I also specialise in shareholder disputes in family businesses, and authored A Practical Guide to Shareholder Disputes in Family Businesses.
