To put it simply, when someone causes damage or harm, the injured party (known as the ‘claimant’) has the right to file a court claim against them (the ‘defendant’) for compensation.
Whether you are the claimant or the defendant to a court claim you should hire a Wakefield-based commercial litigation solicitor to handle the legal side of things.
These can deal with the following:
- Commercial and business disputes
- Debt recovery
- Partnership disputes
- Director and shareholder disputes
- Professional negligence
- Fraud cases
Due to the complexity of all of the above, we recommend that you seek expert advice at the earliest possible opportunity. This will greatly reduce the likelihood of any further escalation and go some way towards the creation of an environment where a quick resolution can be achieved.
With the process of going to court typically being both lengthy and expensive, litigation lawyers will try to solve the claim or dispute before it reaches that stage if this is possible.
If court proceedings are unavoidable, however, then reputable law firms will have the knowledge to deal with them and guide you through the entire process. They will also protect your rights, understand your objectives and promote your interests.
