Our commitment to you

At Gullands, we are your business partner with the legal know-how. We offer an initial telephone discussion with one of our team members to establish the nature of the dispute, whether there is any conflict of interest that would prevent us from acting and to identify what documents you will need to send us.

Our first concern will be advising you on the costs, so you can make an informed commercial decision on the best way forward. We can help with credit checks on the opposing party, to make sure the claim is worth pursuing. We will always consider alternative methods of settling disputes (ADR) tailored to your business and your commercial objectives.  

For example, if the best way forward is to retrieve a valuable commercial relationship with the opposing party, we may suggest mediation or another ADR initiative to achieve this.

We consider all the options for funding your legal fees too, from paying us on an hourly rate, a fixed fee for agreed work, or in some cases insurance or “no win no fee agreements”.


We pride ourselves on being approachable, adaptable and friendly. Here are some examples of what our commercial disputes clients have said about their experience with our team members:

  • Many thanks for all your guidance and professionalism in this case (an unpaid fees claim)
  • I am pleased to inform you that we came to agreement for a full and final settlement with …..which has been paid. Thank you for your help with everything (a contract dispute)
  • Thank you so much for all your time and help this week (an application to enforce a restrictive covenant)
  • Mr ….has been in today and paid the rest of the money - we nearly fell off our chairs! Thank you for all your help in resolving this matter (a contract dispute)
