How does Switalskis approach commercial litigation?

At Switalskis, we take a client-focused, strategic approach to commercial litigation, recognising that each case comes with its own unique set of circumstances and challenges. 

Our first step is to conduct an in-depth consultation with you to understand the intricacies of your case. We review all relevant documentation and assess the strengths and weaknesses of your position.

Based on our assessment, we craft a tailored legal strategy aimed at achieving the best possible outcome. Whether it's negotiation, arbitration or proceeding to trial, we outline the most efficient path forward.

Is it possible to resolve disputes without going to court?

Resolving disputes without going to court is not only possible but often encouraged. At Switalskis, we advocate for alternative dispute resolution methods as a first course of action whenever appropriate. These approaches are generally less confrontational, time-consuming and expensive than going to court. Here are some ways we aim to resolve disputes without litigation:

Our skilled commercial dispute solicitors are adept at negotiating directly with the opposing party. Through focused discussion and compromise, we often find it possible to resolve matters amicably and to the satisfaction of all parties involved.

While our team is fully equipped to represent you effectively in court, we view that as a last resort. Our primary focus remains on resolving disputes through alternative methods, aiming to save you both time and money while achieving favourable outcomes.

What is the fee structure for commercial litigation services?

Understanding the costs involved in legal services is critical for any business. At Switalskis, we strive for transparency and clarity when it comes to our fee structure for commercial litigation services. Here are the various options you might consider:

  • Hourly rate: our commercial litigation solicitors may charge by the hour for their services. The rate will depend on the complexity of the case and the level of expertise needed.
  • Fixed fees: for some types of disputes or specific stages of the litigation process, we offer fixed-fee arrangements. This enables you to manage your budget more effectively, knowing in advance what specific services will cost.
  • Retainer basis: for ongoing or complex cases, you may choose to retain our services for a set period. Retainer fees generally offer a cost-effective way to manage longer-term legal needs.
  • Litigation funding: some clients opt for third-party litigation funding, where an external party agrees to finance the litigation in exchange for a share of the proceeds if the case is successful.

Before we begin any work, we provide a clear and comprehensive breakdown of potential costs associated with your case. We also keep you regularly updated on any changes to these estimates so that there are no surprises.
