Commercial Disputes & Claims

Running a business, no matter how large or small, will include dealing with all manner of claims and disputes adding to the stress of managing your business and ensuring its success. To avoid these problems, or to deal with them when they arise, Burley Geach can advise you in connection with establishing guidelines and procedures. However, there are times when policies and procedures are not enough. If you find yourself in need of expert legal advice, we can assist you across a whole range of disputes and claims, and if necessary provide representation in the courts or tribunals. You can be assured that your matter will be handled professionally by an experienced solicitor who will support you throughout the whole process.

The areas where we can assist are many and varied, and include;

  • Debt recovery: single, multiple or your entire debt recovery needs
  • Employment: drafting or revision of contracts of employment, employee disputes, dismissals and redundancy, representation at an employment tribunal
  • Contractual disputes: customer and supplier
  • Property disputes
  • Professional negligence claims

We understand that whatever the problem you will wish to resolve the matter as soon as possible and with little fuss to ensure that your business is not adversely affected. We will always strive to achieve a resolution without recourse to the courts or tribunals. If this cannot be achieved then we will guide you through each stage of the court process to ensure that you are fully aware of the implications of formal proceedings and have the right legal representation in place. You will be kept fully apprised of the likely legal costs and expenses, including court or tribunal fees, and we will discuss with you all funding options which may be available.

Endeavouring to rectify any issues before they escalate is of course preferable. However, matters can escalate rapidly. If you fear that a business problem has deteriorated to a point where expert legal advice is needed, contact your nearest office now and we will help you find a solution.
