Financial dispute FAQs

What is the financial dispute resolution procedure?

The exact procedure will depend on the specific circumstances involved, but It is always preferable to avoid court proceedings whenever possible if a financial dispute arises that involves your business. We can provide all the legal advice and support necessary to help you first try mediation or informal arrangements to resolve the dispute.

If you believe that you might require our financial dispute lawyers to resolve an issue for your business, the earlier you can get us involved, the better the chances of us finding a solution to the problem quickly and with the minimum amount of fuss and stress for all involved. The first step is for you to contact us for an initial consultation about the issue, so we can decide on the best way to proceed and what action needs to be taken next to aim for the best possible outcome for your business.

What is the cost of financial dispute resolution for my business?

The legal costs associated with this type of service will vary, depending on the circumstances around your particular financial dispute, meaning that some cases will be more complex than others, and much will depend on the responses of the other party or parties involved. We can provide you with an estimate of cost once our team has been apprised of the full details of the dispute and we will always keep you fully informed about any additional fees or costs that may be required as the process goes on.
