Our core values and approach to practising law

We are a leading firm of solicitors offering niche business law and litigation advice, based in Brighton but working nationally. We specialise in advising businesses on commercial and property related litigation including construction and employment matters.

Our background is as dispute and litigation specialists. We focus on being approachable and down to earth. As a firm we specialise in advising businesses on commercial issues such as contracts, litigation, property, employment and HR matters. We also have a specialism in construction, land and development disputes and property related litigation including landlord and tenant matters. We have significant strength in depth in adjudications.

We find most solicitors aloof, opaque in terms of costs and unclear at best in terms of the value of the service they are providing.

We have a ‘business first’ approach and are focussed on giving clear, practical and concise advice. As part of our commercial approach we offer innovative funding models to our clients not limited to fixed fees (which we have offered for years), but also including monthly retainers for clients (so the cost is clear at the outset), no win, no fee agreements (where we back our own advice and analysis for the benefit of clients) and damages based agreements (where we are paid as a percentage of the damages recovered).

As a matter of course we offer initial free, no obligation advice, and are always happy to meet with business people to see how we might be able to assist one another.  Equally the nature of our work means that occasionally it is necessary to move quickly to protect assets or pursue an outcome before others. We have strength in depth and a well-placed team to facilitate this where necessary.

Our fundamental belief is that we need to make as much effort as possible to understand your business or issue and to talk in language that you’re comfortable with.

Whatever your issue we hope we can help. From significant partnership and commercial disputes to land, property and/or development disputes, from unpaid invoices to a problem in your employment or a problem employee- as a firm we are able to assist. We punch above our weight and frequently litigate against city firms, whilst avoiding city costs for our clients. Most importantly we like to work with our clients to achieve the best possible outcome.

Enough about us. We’d love to know about you and how we might help you. Call us on 01273 761990 and we’ll be happy to speak with you or alternatively email us at [email protected] with your contact details and a summary and a member of the team will get in touch.
