Business Dispute Case Assessment
Rely on us to be your objective friend; to understand the ins and outs of your dispute and assess the prospects of your claim or defence being successful.
Our service is a quick, low risk way to get an expert legal view on your dispute. One of our senior business dispute solicitors will review the key evidence that you have to support your position.
We will provide you with a written report letting you know if your claim or defence is likely to be successful. If you decide to pursue your claim, we will set out a roadmap to help you get there.
What is included in the service?
One of our senior business dispute solicitors will review your contracts, key documents, and other forms of evidence relevant to your claim or defence. We will then provide you with a written case assessment report that will set out the options available to you. In the report we will suggest the best option for you to take to resolve your dispute. Your solicitor will also discuss the commercial viability of your claim or defence with you.
As part of our service, we will provide you with an estimate for what you are likely to pay in legal fees, should your dispute proceed. A solicitor will also highlight any immediate problematic issues that will need to be addressed.
Benefits at a glance
An experienced business disputes solicitor will review your claim or defence, quickly getting to the heart of your dispute. You can expect a written summary clearly setting out your legal position, with actionable next steps.
Having an early case assessment will help you to:
Adopt the right strategy from the outset
Seeking legal advice early on will ensure you adopt the right strategy from the outset. Often, we find that businesses involved in a dispute leave it too late and often say or do things that compromise their position. When you use our fixed fee service, an experienced business disputes solicitor will help you clearly identify the best option available to you early on in the process, maximising your chances of succeeding with your claim or defence.
Stop costs from spiralling out of control
Disputes can be expensive, and it can be hard to obtain clear advice on a budget, as law firms typically charge an hourly rate rather than a fixed fee for assessing your claim. A claim might not be commercially viable as the costs of litigation outweigh what you can reasonably expect to receive. Our solicitors will help you make an informed decision telling you what you are likely to realistically achieve if you are successful and what you can expect to pay in legal fees.
