Will Bates


Will is a Solicitor working in the Commercial Litigation team.

Will has experience assisting with Commercial Litigation matters involving: contractual disputes, construction disputes, debt recovery, professional negligence, contentious probate, harassment, defamation, insolvency (individual and corporate) and IP disputes. In the last year Will has had a number of matters involving passing off claims. He is also regularly involved in a wide variety of football disputes, often acting both for and against County FAs.

Will always attempts to understand the bigger picture as soon as he is instructed and keep this in mind throughout the matter. This is to ensure he offers pragmatic advice, which focuses on the key points and anticipates potential issues.

Will’s advice always includes consideration of whether alternative dispute resolution is suitable and Will has experience of assisting clients through mediation.

Will assists the Head of Commercial Litigation services at McCormicks, Philip Edmondson, in acting for a broad range of clients, including: insurers, national and international corporates, entrepreneurs, large family estates, insolvency practitioners (and those facing claims by them), charities, the Premier League, Leeds United FC, Harrogate Town FC, the Ryman League and a number of other sporting bodies and clubs.

Will also acts for the Solicitors Indemnity Fund, advising them on recovery cases involving solicitors' negligence claims and run-off matters.
