In any litigation case we adopt a holistic approach. Enforcement will be considered and discussed at the outset of your case.
Our commercial team has the experience and skill to negotiate tactically to achieve the best results for our clients. We pride ourselves on ensuring that our clients understand the commercial and legal reality of any dispute and the likely costs, timescale and outcome.
Litigation does not necessarily mean court proceedings. Disputes, whether between individuals or commercial entities, can be resolved through negotiation and mediation. A commercial relationship is more likely to survive if a resolution through negotiation can be achieved. This would also avoid significant court costs.
The Court Process
If negotiations break down and the matter remains unresolved we can take you through the court process from issuing and drafting your claim, dealing with the complex nature of evidence and dealing with final preparation for a trial at court.
We can also advise upon tactical measures which can be taken once the claim has been issued and also upon your enforcement options. Indeed, it is appropriate at an early stage to consider, in the event that you are successful, how you enforce payment of any Judgment in your favour from the losing party.
We provide a common-sense approach to your legal issues. We do not hide behind legal jargon and we will always ensure you understand all of the options available to you.
