Contract drafting

7 Solicitors are able to assist those in businesses with professional documents to protect your business and ensure you get paid.

We draft company and partnership formation documents as well as contracts for goods or services. These ensure that your suppliers or clients work within boundaries set by you.

So, whether you are a national trade supplier or a self-employed painter and decorator, it is vital that you have terms and conditions drawn up to govern the way you work. If you don’t, you may find out to your detriment, that your options are limited when something goes wrong. Call us to find out more.

Contractual disputes

Every day, we enter into contracts to purchase goods and services. Unfortunately, these dealings sometimes do not go to plan, causing both financial loss and personal anguish. As a consumer, a manufacturer or a supplier, it is important to be aware of your rights and be able to rectify an issue that breaches this contract.

Getting the contract right at the outset may save a lot of time and expense later on. If this isn’t an option and you find yourself in a dispute over a contract, we can help. We start by advising on the likely interpretation of the contract.

This may result in prompt settlement of the dispute if an appropriate letters are sent. Where this is not the case, we can give you a fixed price for dealing with each step of dispute.

Product liability

Under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 and the Consumers Rights Act 2015, consumers have the right to claim compensation for defective products.

If a product you purchase (whether a motorbike or a microwave, car or can opener) has caused you an injury we can help you make a claim against the relevant company or business.

Professional Negligence

When seeking professional advice you expect a certain standard of skill and expertise. Unfortunately professionals, whether solicitors, financial advisors, surveyors, architects or accountants, can and do make mistakes.
Where a mistake causes you a financial loss or damage, we can assist you in bringing a claim for negligence and obtaining an award of compensation to put matters right.

Unless fault has been admitted, we will need expert advice on the breach of duty that has occurred and will need to discuss what the breach has caused. We are here to guide you through the process with practical advice.

Commercial Litigation

When things go wrong and you need to protect your business, we can help either through dispute resolution, or litigation.

We understand that problems cause loss of operation efficiency and profit.

Let us take the strain and leave you to get on running your business.

Problems may include breach of contract, non-payment, late payment, poor quality goods and services or reputational damage.

We have been engaged in some of the most difficult commercial disputes through mediation where all have resolved to the satisfaction of those involved.
