Businesses will often have disputes. That is part of commercial life. How a business deals with them, however, can often determine whether a business continues to thrive or withers and dies.

If not resolved quickly, these can have an immediate and detrimental impact upon profit and cash flow and will often require the business to redirect important resources to address the problem. Directors and senior management may need to focus their attentions on the dispute, often neglecting the company’s core business.

Having trusted legal advisers on hand is important.

Practical commercial legal advice

The Wellers Law Group commercial litigation and dispute resolution team have considerable experience acting for businesses [in London, Kent and Surrey] upon a full range of business disputes.  We provide practical advice so you can quickly understand your legal position and the options available to you.

Our advice and approach will depend on the individual dispute. We do not believe there is a ‘one glove fits all’ solution to dispute resolution: we may advise we write a robust letter of claim followed by litigation in certain circumstances, but in others, we may recommend attempting a resolution via Alternative Dispute Resolution via Mediation or otherwise.  We will identify your objective and advise the best strategy to endeavour to achieve this.

We regularly advise and represent businesses on

As a partner for nearly 20 years at a London West End Legal 500 firm, he brings a wealth of litigation and dispute resolution experience to Wellers Reece-Jones.

He acts for many types of businesses, from small and niche SMEs  to large and international PLCs, and everything in between.

He values his clients and their loyalty, takes time to understand their needs and makes no assumptions about their objectives. He recognises the importance of practical and commercial advice and providing cost-effective solutions.

Jonathan and his team take a client-focused and pragmatic approach to their legal advice and place great importance on understanding when to litigate and when to look to resolve the dispute another way. So whilst they are always ready take a robust approach at the right time, they also recognise that sometimes Alternative Dispute Resolution can be more productive.

Conditional Fee Agreement (no win, no fee)

A Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) is a contract that allows you to have a ‘no win, no fee’ or a ‘discounted fee’ arrangement. It is a contact between you and us to cover legal fees payable by you based on the outcome of your dispute.

Naturally, we go through a risk assessment with you prior to entering into a CFA and the outcome of that will depend on many factors including the merits of your case, the value of your claim and likelihood of recovery from your opponent.  We will undertake a risk analysis of your case and discuss the same in detail with you.

  • No win no fee arrangements are the most commonly known whereby you will not be liable for our fees if you are not successful in your case.  We would charge no fee if the case is unsuccessful. If the case is successful, we will charge a success fee (in terms of a percentage of the standard base costs) as well as the normal fees.
  • In a discounted conditional fee arrangement you will agree to pay our fees at a discounted rate during the course of the matter and will only pay the balance to make up the full fees due if your case is successful. You also pay a success fee is your case is successful.  We are therefore sharing the risk of the litigation with you.

Both types of agreement can include a success fee of up to 100% of our basis charges which will be payable should your case be successful.  Please note that you cannot recover the success fee from your opponent, even if you are successful.
