Litigation & Dispute Services
Litigation & disputes is a difficult area of law, and can often cause a huge amount of upset and stress. At David Lee Solicitors we are dedicated to helping, guiding, and supporting you to resolve disputes as efficiently as possible, with a minimum of fuss.
- Debt response
David Lee Solicitors’ Debt Response provides low cost debt recovery from just £15 plus VAT* to enable you to recover outstanding money owed to you which can often hinder your cash flow and trading. It is a well-known fact that the longer a debt remains unpaid the harder it is to recover.
Whenever payment is not received, we will be at hand to provide a solution that speeds up payment. This will give you peace of mind and allow you to dedicate your time to building your business, rather than chasing outstanding debt.
All fee quotes and estimates will be subject to review depending on the nature of the matter as it progresses. Your matter may be carried out by Solicitors, Members of CILEx, or other non-legally qualified members of the team, such as Paralegals, or Fee Earners who have substantial experience in their chosen field but no formal legal qualifications. Your matter will be supervised by David Lee.
- David Lee – Senior Solicitor – £244 per hour plus VAT*
- Diana Crone – Paralegal – £130 per hour plus VAT*
These costs apply where your claim is in relation to an unpaid invoice which is not disputed, and enforcement action is not needed. If the other party disputes your claim at any point, we will discuss any further work required and provide you with revised advice about costs if necessary, which could be on a fixed fee (e.g. if a one off letter is required), or an hourly rate if more extensive work is needed.
Anyone wishing to proceed with a claim should note that:
- The VAT* element of our fee cannot be reclaimed from your debtor.
- Interest and compensation may take the debt into a higher banding, with a higher cost.
- The costs quoted above are not for matters where enforcement action, such as the bailiff, is needed to collect your debt.
For debt values of up to £100,000 – our fee for the work outlined below is estimated from between £500 to £2500 plus VAT* and disbursements. Disbursements can range from as little as £3 to £5,000. Disbursements will attract VAT*.
Court fees will be payable dependent on the value of the claim. See the link below. https://www.gov.uk/court-fees-what-they-are
