Litigation

Not everything in business always goes to plan, so when there's a problem you need expert guidance.

At Blanchards Bailey, our experienced litigators can provide a thorough understanding of the different aspects of litigation as well as the impact it can have on you and your future.

No case is too big or small. Our specialist team is equipped to handle complex corporate and commercial disputes and will advise you every step of the way.

Our approach to disputes and litigation...

When handling a dispute or litigation case we begin by collecting as much information as we can. We identify the key issues and find out exactly what you hope to achieve. Only when we have the full facts can we advise. Our policy is to give a frank assessment of the chances of success – even if that is not what you want to hear.

Alternative ways of resolving disputes and litigation...

People are increasingly turning to ways of resolving disputes and litigation without incurring the cost and uncertainty of a full trial. Arbitration in commercial disputes has long been in use but various forms of mediation are now becoming common. We can advise on these and guide you through the process.

Costs

A major consideration in all litigation is the cost. If you succeed you can expect in most cases to be awarded part, but seldom all, of what you have paid us. You need to remember that even if the court makes an award in your favour, your opponent may be unable to pay.

We offer an initial free interview to assess whether your problem is one with which we can help. We will give you a clear indication of the basis on which we will charge. We will also look at ways we can minimise costs by you doing some of the work.

A personal service

As in everything we do at Blanchards Bailey, the client’s interest comes first. We understand just how stressful disputes can be. We will do all we can to help you achieve the best possible outcome in the shortest time, and with minimum worry and cost.
