The ground-breaking commercial dispute resolution process developed by Moore Blatch with Bermans solicitors and PKF Littlejohn, accountants At a glance
Pursuing a commercial dispute tends to be a costly, lengthy and risky undertaking. It’s hardly surprising, then, that many businesses decide against pursuing a claim and reluctantly write-off what they are owed.
That’s why we’ve created Escalate, a smarter way to resolve commercial disputes that prioritises your cash flow and gives you the support you need to achieve a prompt settlement for you and your business.
A winner of ‘Best Collaboration Initiative’ in The Lawyer Awards 2018 amd ‘Innovation of the Year’ at the British Accountancy Awards 2017, Escalate takes care of each stage of the process for you whilst negotiating on your behalf and encouraging the defendant to settle quickly in your favour without the need for litigation allowing up to three months.
Escalate is transforming how businesses manage disputes:
- No financial risk – you don’t pay out unless we reach a successful settlement
- No initial outlay – we pay for all of the up-front costs
- Rapid results – we aim to get your money back in just three months; if we can’t settle quickly, we have the financial backing to support you all the way to a High Court resolution
- A fixed fee basis – complete transparency from the start
- No restrictions on the types of cases we tackle – bad debt, contractual, negligence, IP infringement etc
- Not just current or future cases – we can go back to disputes that are up to three years old
If the defendant is unwilling to settle in this timeframe, we get on with the litigation. We’ll take care of this process for you, paying the up-front fees and associated costs all the way up to a High Court resolution, if that is what it takes.
The Escalate approach gives you an opportunity to resolve disputes in a way that saves you money, time and hassle, and enabling you to get on with running your business.
