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.

  • If you or your business is owed money by another business or individual, you can make an application to a court to claim the money that you are owed. This is known as making a court claim, and depending on your individual circumstances, there are two main types of court that you can register a claim with – the Small Claims Court and the County or High Court.

Wong, who is now working as a paralegal in Hong Kong, claimed that the course failed to properly explain business concepts and rules, that lectures were unstimulating with repeated re-use of resources and that contact time with lecturers was also reduced part way through her course. Wong has warned universities about what they promote and claim in their prospectuses, and said some UK universities were being... Read More
