Litigation

For Business

Contractual disputes

Contract disputes are not uncommon. They’re usually the result of a disagreement over the terms of the original contract or because one party has breached the agreement.  Breach of Jersey contract disputes can however quickly spiral out of control and result in substantial difficulty for your Jersey business.  Expert early specialist Jersey legal advice can often prevent problems later on. Our dispute resolution team can help advise on the best course of action to take, while protecting your legal position every step of the way.

Debt recovery

Even a business with a thorough and robust system for monitoring cash flow and chasing overdue invoices will sometimes need to resort to legal action for debt recovery. Parslows debt recovery team are committed to providing a cost-effective debt recovery service, helping you focus on recovering your debts quickly and efficiently.  Please note we do not accept claims that are worth less than £30,000.  This is because the Jersey Petty Debts Court has a simplified procedure allowing clients to represent themselves which in general terms means you cannot recover your legal fees.

We provide proactive advice, and give clear, pragmatic, and commercial advice that enables clients to resolve disputes at the earliest opportunity on favourable terms. But we also do not shrink from escalating legal proceedings and litigating robustly. We assist Jersey businesses to protect their businesses when key employees depart.

Partnership disputes

Partners’ business relationships are somewhat unique in that the relationship is based on mutual trust and respect, a shared outlook on how to run a Jersey business. When the partnership relationship goes wrong it can be difficult to prevent the dispute becoming personalised. Our Partnerships Dispute Resolution team provide advice to individuals involved in partnerships or joint ventures in property and other business sectors.

Shareholder disputes

The nature of shareholder disputes varies from business to business. Each business and the owners therein will be unique. A dispute can arise for many reasons such as a difference of opinion over the direction of the company or how the business should be managed. Securing an appropriate way forward for those shareholders often requires subtlety and expertise.  If all other options are exhausted and your dispute is still not resolved, litigation may be necessary. Parslows’ litigators will assist you to establish and protect your legal position and advise you on your best route to success.
