Fixed fee service offers peace of mind

Higgs & Sons has launched a new range of fixed fee services that aim to help businesses and individuals who are worried about the likely costs of pursuing or defending court claims.

“We appreciate that litigation can be expensive. Cases are often complicated and as a result become protracted due to the nature of the issues involved.  Costs can quickly become disproportionate to the sums in dispute,” explains Julia Lowe, Head of the Dispute Resolution and Litigation team at Higgs & Sons.

“There are many cases where the sums involved are relatively low and parties have to consider if making a claim is actually going to be worth it even if succeeds.”

In response to these issues, Higgs has launched its fixed fee services which provide a transparent and open pricing structure for Court claims with values up to £25,000.

“We have listened to our clients and our professional contacts and introduced fixed fees for bringing and defending court claims with values of up to £25k,” continues Julia.  

“We have also introduced a fixed fee option to complement our ‘no collection, no charge’ debt recovery services.” 

Higgs’ new fixed fee service provides a number of key benefits to clients unsure about pursuing or defending a claim. These include:

  • peace of mind through costs certainty
  • fair and affordable prices
  • no hourly rates or hidden charges

Court claims which are handled using Higgs’ fixed fee options are treated in the same way as all other claims. They are handled by one of Higgs’ litigation experts who will offer an objective assessment of each case and ongoing specialist advice as the claim progresses.

Julia concludes: “Making or defending a court claim is often a last resort for businesses and individuals and where the sums involved are relatively low, people often conclude that a claim is not worth pursuing”.

“From our experience, knowing that the costs involved are not going to spiral provides a peace of mind which allows clients to confidently pursue matters which previously they may have left unresolved.”

Higgs’ fixed fee services are part of a range of options available to clients depending on the nature and value of the claim in question. For more information on any aspect of Higgs’ fixed fee services click here or speak to a member of the Dispute Resolution team.
