Commercial Litigation & Dispute Resolution

No business wants a commercial dispute, and any form of dispute, whether a shareholder dispute, breach of contract claim or other issue, will inevitably create stress, cost (including time-costs) and uncertainty.

Despite the best of intentions, sometimes disputes cannot be avoided and in those circumstances it is vital to seek the best advice.

Ferguson Financial Solicitors are ideally positioned to assist. From initially meeting with you, our role is, first and foremost, to advise on the legal position and the options for resolving the dispute in the best way possible. In real terms this means:

  • Identifying any solutions you may not have considered including arbitration, mediation, litigation and private negotiation or otherwise
  • Assessing the prospects of a successful claim based on the legal merits of your case
  • Identifying the likely costs of the case from instruction through to trial
  • Assessing the prospects of successful enforcement of any settlement or judgment against the opponent

Professional negligence

Professionals are legally bound to exercise “reasonable skill and care” when dealing with clients. If they fail to do this and their mistake was one that a reasonable professional working in the same field would not have made, and you suffered a loss as a direct result of the mistake, then they are liable for damages. These professionals could include, amongst others:

  • Accountants
  • Architects
  • Banks
  • Engineers
  • Financial Advisers
  • Insurance Brokers
  • Legal Professionals
  • Surveyors
  • Tax Consultants

If you feel that you may have suffered a loss as a direct result of professional negligence, or if you are unsure, contact Ferguson Financial Solicitors for immediate, no-obligation assistance and advice.

Gaining of redress for the mis-sale of Interest Rate Hedging Products (IRHP)

IRHPs are complicated derivative products which were sold to businesses, primarily between 2005 and 2008, as protection against interest rate increases. However, as interest rates plummeted in 2008 and 2009 many businesses ended up sitting on heavy losses as borrowers paid more as interest rates fell, forcing many businesses into financial distress.

Ferguson Financial Solicitors have the expertise to identify eligible claims resulting from for the mis-sale of these complex products, and the legal experience to manage claims, including any identifiable consequential loss and recovery.

Contact us now to request information or to discuss a potential complaint.

Business Rates Rebates

Ratepayers rely on their local council to formulate their business rates bill correctly. However, local councils have an ever growing amount of rate demands to calculate and distribute. When coupled with the complex legislation, and legislative changes that also need to be taken into consideration and applied, it’s easy to see why errors can occur.

Ferguson Financial Solicitors have the facility to investigate and identify where the errors have occurred (from 1990 onwards) and to work on behalf of the company to correct any errors and obtain any refunds due – all on a “no win – no fee” basis.
