No matter how well you run your business, sometimes taking, or defending yourself against, legal action is unavoidable. In those circumstances you need expert and impartial legal advice to help you decide on the course of action which is most likely to help you achieve the result you need.

Whether you are looking to start court proceedings against someone else or are preparing your defence from an action brought against you, AMD Solicitors can provide expert support and guidance throughout the whole process.

Starting litigation

If you feel that bringing an action is justified we will work with you to ensure that this is done in the correct way, giving you the best chance of success. We will establish whether your claim is strong enough to justify moving forward, then work to build your case before submitting all necessary documentation to begin the action. Once the process is begun, we can negotiate on your behalf with the subject or subjects of the action. We will make your case in court if necessary and help you deal with any issues surrounding the final judgement and its enforcement, including lodging appeals.

Defending an action

If an action has been brought against you, we can help you build your defence, negotiate on your behalf and defend you in court if things progress that far. In most cases court appearances are not necessary as most issues can be resolved outside of court. This is often a cheaper, faster and less stressful option for everyone involved.

Dispute resolution

Where appropriate we can work with all involved parties to attempt to reach a successful resolution without going to court. We have a number of trained dispute resolution experts on our team, including those who specialise in collaborative law within Family work.

However, if court action is the best or only option, our solicitors have a strong track record of achieving favourable outcomes for our clients. We have the knowledge and experience to put together the strongest possible case and present it in the best way to maximise your chances of achieving a satisfactory outcome.

Our expertise

Our team of highly experienced litigation specialists have decades of experience between them dealing with both civil and commercial litigation. We will work closely with you at every step of the process to ensure you are always completely informed and able to make decisions which best reflect your interests. We will also keep you abreast of all expenditures as we progress to help you keep a handle on the financial aspects of the situation.

If you need expert legal advice on starting or defending yourself against commercial litigation, call AMD Solicitors today on 0117 962 1205. Alternatively you can email John Todd from our litigation team.
