Commercial Dispute Resolution & Litigation
We provide a continuous service from negotiating settlements informally and using Alternative Dispute Resolution methods (e.g. Mediation and Arbitration) to Advocacy in Court through to enforcement. Our aim is to advise on strategic and litigation risks while keeping costs to a minimum.
Our Litigation specialists advise and assist on:
Private Funding - Fees are paid by you from personal or company funds. Our hourly rates start from £95.
Before-The-Event Legal Expenses Insurance (or ‘BTE’) - A pre-existing insurance policy which provides cover for legal fees and expenses. This will often be part of your car, buildings and/ or contents insurance policies.
After-The-Event Legal Expenses Insurance (‘ATE’) - ATE is taken out after a dispute has arisen insuring a party to a dispute against the risk of having to pay their opponent’s costs. Payment of the ATE insurance premium is usually deferred until the conclusion of the case and if the case is successfully settled or won is paid by the losing opponent. The insurance policy provides indemnity for the full cost of the premium, so if the case is lost, the insured does not have to pay anything.
Conditional Fee Agreement (‘CFA’ or ‘no win/no fee’ contract) - An agreement, commonly backed by ATE, where we agree to carry out work for a reduced or no fee, in return for an uplift of our fees upon successful conclusion of the action.
Contingency/ Damages Based Agreements - In some cases we can enter an agreement by which we carry out work in return for a fixed proportion of the compensation paid out by a losing party.
Third-Party Funding - Where a third party supports a case for a proportion of the damages and costs awarded.
