Professional Negligence

If you have been badly advised by a professional then feel free to contact us to discuss your case. This area falls under our litigation section and more information is below.
 

Litigation

If you are in dispute with a supplier or customer then we can help you resolve this.

We will give you clear and honest advice on your case from the outset. If your case is not worth pursuing or is high risk then we will tell you at the earliest opportunity to ensure costs are not wasted. This clear and honest advice ensures that we have a  high success rate.

We will try and resolve your case in the most time and cost effective way. We will always consider whether an application for strike out/summary judgment of the claim or defence can be made to ensure the matter does not progress to trial unnecessarily. We will also advise on alternative methods to try and resolve this case, for example mediation.

We will advise you on the best tactical steps to take to ensure you are in the very best position.

Litigation is a stressful process, but you can alleviate some of this stress by allowing us to manage your case.
 

Business Disputes

We can provide advice on and help you resolve all kinds of business disputes including, shareholder disputes, partnership disputes or director disputes.

Prevention is always better and cheaper than cure, so it is best to have agreements in place even if you have gone into business with friends or family.

We are experienced in negotiating settlements of these matters, which is usually a better solution than going though the courts. If a dispute has arisen or you believe one is imminent, feel free to contact us to discuss your best options.


Terms & Agreements

Having professionally drafted terms and conditions can avoid great expense later on.

We have acted for businesses trying to recover funds from a customer, defending claims brought by a customer and defending claims by trading standards, all of which could have been avoided by properly drafted terms of business.

We also draft partnership agreements and shareholder agreements. These are agreements you should always have drawn up. We have come across clients who did not think an agreement was necessary because they had gone into business with a good friend or family member only for it to go wrong. It is far more expensive to try and sort matters out without any agreement in place so it is well worth the investment.

We also offer ongoing help by telephone or email and are happy to answer any quick legal queries that you may have.


Employment Law  

The employment relationship can be complicated by constantly changing legislation and case law. It is therefore crucial that both employers and employees are aware of their rights and obligations to one another.

We have a flexible and pragmatic approach and are committed to helping businesses and private individuals to ensure that the employment relationship runs smoothly, or to advise concerning any problems.

If you are already trading we offer a legal health check and will go through your legal documents to ensure that you are complying with the relevant laws and that your terms and conditions are up to date.
