Resolving Disputes and Debt Recovery for Business

If your business is in a dispute with a supplier, a customer or a commercial partner, you need solicitors who will fight your corner.Brown & Co Solicitors in Greenwich offers realistic advice on commercial litigation matters and debt recovery. We are aggressive when we need to be — in or out of court. But we also have the experience to deploy tactical negotiation skills to find settlements — without endangering the stability of your business.We carry out a risk assessment in each case, weighing up what you can hope to achieve by pursuing or defending a claim against what you might lose. This involves calculating the possible cost of pursuing any judgment you may obtain, including the cost of bailiffs, freezing orders, injunctions and bankruptcy petitions.

From Immediate Dispute Resolution to Long-term Risk Avoidance

Some clients instruct us on one-off matters, such as a particular dispute or contractual issue. But many businesses look to us for more long-term, proactive advice. This involves us working with you to review your relationships with your business partners.

We also scrutinise business terms and conditions and other contracts to develop strategies that minimise the risk to your business from unreliable suppliers and underperforming employees.

How We Work

Every business is different. Our solicitors are used to working closely with a range of clients with widely differing needs — from sole traders to SMEs and larger organisations.

We are a small team with the flexibility to give personal attention to each case we take on.

We have valuable experience too. Solicitor Winston Brown managed large-scale debt recovery actions for London local authorities so he brings an in-depth understanding of the practicalities and cost consequences of large-scale litigation. In areas like debt collection, we can provide one off assistance or act as a company’s ongoing debt collection agents.

Our work includes:

  • Contract disputes
  • Building disputes
  • Corporate and partnership disputes
  • Debt recovery and credit control issues
  • Disputes with customers
  • Fiduciary duty claims
  • Insurance matters
  • Landlord and tenant disputes
  • Insolvency-related disputes

Litigation Funding

We keep the issue of costs at the forefront of our minds when undertaking any form of litigation or debt recovery. From the outset we will advise you on your ability to recover your costs and provide guidance on how you may obtain legal costs protection, including legal expenses insurance.
