Our Commercial Litigation Department is headed up by our Senior Partner and the firm’s founder, Des Collins. Des is not only a lawyer with a superb reputation but one who’s unafraid to take on a challenge no matter what size the opponent. His David and Goliath approach and commitment to justice makes him a tenacious litigator and a rather formidable opponent. Clients have been known to remark they’re delighted he’s on their side and not on the other! His team have followed in his footsteps and at the same time are firm believers in demystifying the often mind-blowing complexities of the law for you.
Disputes of any size or type can be tiring and stressful, all the more so when you’re up against professionals or a large corporate entity. We aim to minimise your worry at the same time as guiding you through all aspects of your claim and maximising the results. We keep you fully updated at every stage as to costs incurred even when instructed on a CFA. This enables you to make fully informed choices throughout.
Please contact us for full details of individual packages. We do have flexible funding mechanisms in place and utilise cutting edge technology to keep costs down.
The commercial litigation team have been involved in a number of high profile and seminal cases including Etridge v RBS which was finally decided in the House of Lords and the guidelines set down in that case form the basic requirements to which banks must adhere when advancing mortgage monies to private households.
