Charity– Advice to charities Our litigation consultant can help with business related litigation including: • Claims in the County Court or High Court • Insolvency • Debt collection • Partner and Shareholder disputes
We will always give you a quote at the outset and make the charging basis clear so that you can budget accordingly. For some work we can agree a fixed fee. Within the Business Law department we also provide advice on less standard residential property matters.
