Commercial Claims

Operating in the commercial world requires constant interaction with other people or businesses. Companies are set up, contracts are formed, goods sold, services provided and expertise sought. Occasionally these relationships can go awry and cause harm to an individual's or business's finances and reputation. Taking action when faced with a dispute can put an individual or business back to the situation they were in before their rights were infringed, or where that isn't possible, can result in a financial award to compensate for any loss.

Yet many people don't enforce their rights for fear of the costs involved. This needn't be the case. There are a variety of flexible litigation funding options, such as no win no fee agreements, that make commercial claims and dispute resolution affordable.

The cost of resolving disputes needn't prevent you from enforcing your rights. If you are involved in a business dispute, we can help you fund commercial litigation without putting your personal finances at risk.

  • Whilst Covid-19 may have forced many parts of society to slow down and re-think our approach to all aspects of our lives, recent comments by a number of High Court judges would seem to indicate that this is certainly not happening in civil and commercial litigation. The 3 judges have expressed their disquiet over the ever increasing pervasiveness of hostile and antagonistic approaches to litigation where every point, good or bad, is taken.
