Litigation Disputes

County Court Claims

 

County Court Actions

There are many reasons why County Court Proceedings may become necessary and the County Court deals with numerous different types of claim. You can rest assured that our Litigation Team will provide a vigorous and effective presentation of your case in order to obtain the best result. We aim to provide a high quality service but will deal with your matter in a friendly and professional manner. We also work hard to ensure that there is regular communication with you to ensure you are kept informed about the progress of your case.

Small Claims Court Proceedings

If your claim is worth less than £10,000, then Small Claims Court Proceedings should be issued.  The Small Claims Court is a simplified procedure which enables the parties involved to resolve their disputes as quickly as possible. 

Unfortunately, other than fixed costs, the legal fees you incur in dealing with Small Claims Court Proceedings are not recoverable from your opponent even if you win. We would always advise that you should consider carefully whether this action is appropriate and the need to instruct solicitors to act on your behalf since quite often the costs of taking the action can outweigh the benefits of winning a case at the lower end of the scale.

We appreciate that you may still need some legal guidance to help you through legal proceedings and therefore we have designed our Fixed Fee Consultancy Schemes which will allow you to obtain advice at a discounted fixed fee with no hidden charges. You pay for the time you need when you need it so that you can budget accordingly.

Our Pay as you go Scheme ensures that you remain in control of your case and the costs, making a Small Claims Court Claim a much more viable option financially.

Fast/Multi Track Claims Court Proceedings

If your claim is worth more than £10,000 and you are successful, you can usually recover the legal costs from your opponent, and if it proceeds to court this would be dealt with by the County Court. 

For this type of claim, we would offer our retainer scheme, this will enable our Litigation Solicitors to guide you through the legal process, ensuring that your claim is effectively formulated to maximise your chances of success and we will work hard to obtain and enforce the Court’s Judgement if it proceeds to Court.
