Pursuing a commercial dispute can be a costly, risky and lengthy undertaking. In our experience, many businesses decide against pursuing a claim for those reasons and, reluctantly, write-off what they are owed.

Escalate is an award winning dispute resolution process that takes care of every stage of your claim whilst negotiating on your behalf and encouraging the defendant to settle quickly in your favour, reducing the usual length of time a typical claim can take from issue to judgment.

A business services company was sold their business to a UK company with a US parent. They had agreed for three sums to be paid in stages over a two-year period. However the final installment of £250,000 was unexpectedly not received.
We begin negotiating on your behalf as soon as you engage us, using experienced corporate recovery specialists to encourage the defendant to settle quickly in your favour, without the need for litigation. We allow up to a maximum of three months for this negotiation. We help with managing commercial disputes by providing a straightforward commercial dispute solution that removes all financial risk, including upfront costs by using:
• Experienced commercial negotiators
• Incentives to settle within three months
• Fixed fees that you don’t pay unless a successful settlement is reached.
If the defendant is unwilling to settle in this three month time-frame, we immediately begin preparing for litigation. We will take care of this process for you, paying the upfront fees and associated costs all the way up to a High Court resolution. Through the Escalate process:
• You have no upfront court costs, counsel fees etc
• You do not pay our fixed fees unless the case is successful
• You don’t pay the defendant’s legal costs if you lose.
The process minimises costs through fixed fees that are only payable if the recovery and/or settlement of a debt is successful. Importantly, unlike traditional litigation, there is also a cap on all costs to ensure that the client (claimant) is always the main beneficiary of any amount recovered.
