Advice For Business

Commercial Litigation

Our promise: transparent, flexible, tailored legal fees - from the outset.

Our team are all still working and continuing to look after all our clients financial and legal matters and take new instructions, or simply just give advice. The safety of our clients and staff is important to us. We are here for all our clients via telephone and email and offering ‘virtual’ meetings and appointments in a way to suit your needs.

Resolving business disputes

Most businesses will have to deal with a dispute at some time or other. Whatever the dispute – whether it relates to a long overdue debt, sub-standard goods or a breach of contract, you need a speedy and cost-effective resolution with the least possible disruption to your business and cash flow.

Whatever issues you face, we can help you settle the matter, ideally with your commercial reputation and business relationships intact. If settlement is not possible, we can advise on the best method of dispute resolution whether that involves formal proceedings through the  courts or alternative forms of dispute resolution (ADR) such as negotiation, mediation or adjudication.

Achieving a resolution for your business

If court proceedings are necessary, we have the experience, expertise and advocacy skills to pursue or defend those proceedings vigorously in the High Court or County Court, to assist you in achieving a resolution that suits your commercial objectives.

Our solicitors will advise you fully on the procedures involved and all options available to achieve a successful outcome. We will also fully inform you of the likely costs involved.

Debt recovery

Our Commercial Litigation team also offers a Debt Recovery service which is geared to improving cash flow by recovering unpaid invoices cost-efficiently.
