How we can help

Our team of solicitors has many years of experience in dealing with a wide variety of commercial disputes. We act for a whole series of businesses from SMEs to well-known regional companies. We understand that taking early legal advice at the outset of a dispute can prevent it from rapidly escalating into a full-blown court case which will save your business time and money.

In addition to advising you on the strictly legal issues and strategy for your case, we have links to a network of experts in a wide range of fields who will be able to assist with the technical aspects of your case. Our head of commercial litigation previously ran a manufacturing company and so understands the effects first hand that litigation can have on business. For this reason, it is also important to look at the bigger picture before embarking on a court claim, sometimes parking the strictly legal issues and concentrating on the practical outcome for the business.

The cost of litigation has increased significantly over the past few years. Our solicitors aim to ensure that legal fees are proportionate to the value of the dispute and to keep matters out of the court if possible. We actively support alternative dispute resolution procedures (“ADR”) such as mediation, expert determination, and arbitration.

The type of matters that we can help you with are:

Funding a legal dispute is costly not only regarding cash flow but also in management and staff time. We offer a range of alternative financing arrangements, such as Conditional Fee Agreements, Damage Based Agreements, and insurance as alternatives to traditional private funding. Please call us for a no-cost assessment of your case.
