Why use a business dispute solicitor?

When things go wrong in a business, you need the right support, when you need it. Legal disputes can crop up out of the blue. HM Legal is committed to working at pace so when disagreements emerge let HM’s business dispute team step in – the earlier the better. As well as mediating to avoid costly litigation clients instruct HM to resolve boardroom and shareholder disputes, commercial property disputes involving landlords and tenants, commercial contract disputes, and complex probate disputes.

Let us make your life easier. We think you’ll notice a difference.

Why use commercial debt recovery solicitors?

Business owners and managers often come to HM Legal after repeatedly trying to recover outstanding invoices themselves, without success. Some were owed money going back years. Others are unfortunately too late to recoup what they were owed, as suppliers have gone out of business. For 9 out of 10 clients Mike’s team can recover what’s owed and more often than not they can also recover the legal fees from the debtor; meaning they – the client – do not pay. A win-win.

Another benefit of using HM’s legal experts to recover business debt is joined-up thinking. This includes providing a seamless recovery service which might begin as a very affordable Letter Before Action through to more complex litigation. A standard debt collection recovery agency simply cannot offer this cradle to grave service – and in fact they often outsource parts of the recovery process, adding unnecessary cost, time and complexity. Guess who pays? The business owner worried about the growing debt ledger threatening to sink the company.
