Town & Country Legal Services LLP
legal services, Litigation
Our first aim is to achieve payment by mediation, negotiation and
communication. This generally produces the best outcomes in our
There are times when this strategy does not work, and it becomes
necessary to use legal processes. We understand the various stages
involved, and appreciate the cost implications, and so we will carry out
an analysis of the costs involved and the likelihood of success before
recommending legal action in these cases.
No action would commence without the full knowledge of our clients of
the costs involved, and the risk of losing the case – or winning the
case and still not being paid.
We are aware of many successful legal actions where County Court
Judgments are obtained, often on-line by creditors, but not enforced or
unenforceable because debtors have no assets, or have disappeared.
Mediation is a lot quicker and can result in a mutually acceptable
agreement for both parties. Compromises can be reached with regards to
payment method, financial and non-financial areas. Courts view Mediation
in a favourable light as an alternative form of dispute resolution.
Having offered Mediation before legal proceedings shows the court that
you have tried everything possible before this point to resolve the
matter, and may lead to them viewing your case more favourably.
When the need arises and it is appropriate, we have numerous effective
legal remedies. Our personnel work closely with our legal team resulting
in the best possible result being obtained as quickly and cost
effectively as possible.
Our debt recovery activities are complemented with legal fees lower than
those of high street solicitors, furthermore minimising unnecessarily
high fees that may be incurred. In most circumstances we are able to
offer our clients litigation at a fixed price, providing greater clarity
and aiding you in your decisions and planning of potential action.
In summary, we believe that legal action should be taken only
when all other avenues have been exhausted; even at this stage a clear
commercial decision needs to be made.
