Defending a Claim

Defending a Claim

When defending a claim if proceedings are served on you by the Court or a Claimant, you need to act urgently.

We can assist you by:

  • Giving initial advice relating to the Court process;
  • Giving initial advice on the matter itself;
  • Acting for you generally in defending the proceedings.

We will always advise you frankly about the prospects and the costs.

Using Clarke & Son as Your Litigation Consultant

Whether making or defending a claim you may wish to have some legal advice but do not want to instruct a solicitor permanently.  You just need some guidance or simply want to discuss the merits of the claim with a lawyer.

The need for help may come at any stage of the action.

This is sometimes known as an ‘unbundled’ service.

We can assist and will normally give fixed fee quotes for the work we are asked to do.
