Our litigation expertise.
Whether it is a lease, building contract, partnership agreement, guarantee, sale contract, loan agreement or other contract our lawyers are experienced in litigating all kinds of contractual disputes. Litigation can be costly, time consuming and draining for anyone especially a small business. Our lawyers provide you with quality representation at a modest price and will always look to resolve your disputes commercially.
When you go into business with someone it is often with rose coloured glasses on. However, in the real world, fall outs happen and can often be messy. If you have fallen out with your partner, received (or want to issue) a notice of dissolution of partnership our lawyers can assist. In certain circumstances, the appointment of a receiver may be appropriate to deal with the business’ affairs in order to move forwards.
You’ve done the work and upheld your side of the bargain, been promised payment but have been left empty handed. They are ignoring your calls, texts and emails and the account is now well outside your normal trading terms. Our lawyers will review the agreement, evaluate your options for recovery and act quickly and decisively to recover what you are owed (with interest and costs – where possible).
Defending claims brought by a liquidator
Our insolvency lawyers regularly act on both sides of insolvency proceedings and are able to assist directors and third parties that may find themselves subject to claims by a liquidator. Our experience includes insolvent trading, directors loans, breaches of fiduciary duties, unfair preference claims, unreasonable director related transactions, voidable transactions and much more.
