Business disputes FAQ

How are contract disputes dealt with?
If you’re involved in a contract dispute, speak to a member of our business dispute team to get expert legal advice from an early stage. We’ll be able to tell you whether your claim is worth pursuing as well as advising on potential outcomes of the claim..

Depending on the severity of the dispute as well as your relationship with the other party, we will try to achieve resolution through a method of alternative dispute resolution. Where we can minimise stress and costs involved with courtroom hearings, we will. This could involve active encouragement from our business disputes solicitors to find a solution .

If an agreement cannot be reached through negotiation or mediation despite significant effort on your behalf to find resolve, your case may go to court. In this instance, your legal position would only be strengthened as you proved to be committed to resolving the dispute. Our solicitors will be by your side from beginning to end to provide pragmatic advice and representation.

What is involved in the process of suing someone?
After you’ve spoken to our business dispute solicitors to explain your situation and establish the legal basis of your claim, we’ll help you draft a letter to the other party notifying them that you will be starting court proceedings. This allows them a certain amount of time to put things right. During this time, you may want to try methods of alternative dispute resolution and offer a settlement. If an agreement cannot be reached, and the other party has not made an effort to make amends, we’ll help you commence court proceedings.

The first step will involve completing a claims form to send to the relevant court. Our solicitors will handle the claim from start to finish, collecting evidence to strengthen it as well as conducting interviews with relevant witnesses.

The claim will be sent to the court, and to the other party stating a timeframe for response. If the other party choses to fight the claim, the court will decide on whether the case is appropriate for small claims (for claims valued less than £10,000), fast track (for claims valued between £10,000 and £25,000) or multi track (for claims with a value higher than £25,000.)

The court will issue all the parties with case management directions to prepare the case for trial to include, disclosure of documents, witness statement and expert evidence if necessary. 

The case will be determined by a judge at a trial. Ultimately, taking someone to court does cost time and money, so it’s vital to ensure your claim is worth pursuing financially. Whatever you decide, our solicitors will guide you through the process and strive to protect your best interests at all times

We believe that the most effective method of avoiding recurring disputes is to build a long lasting relationship with our clients, so we can be there to provide advice before a dispute escalates. Talk to an expert business dispute solicitor at Talbots Law today by calling us on 0800 118 1500.
