We help many business clients in Eastbourne, Hastings and around East Sussex from established national brands to newly formed local businesses.  Our Solicitors pioneered the use of Conditional Fee Agreements for Commercial and Property related disputes within the local area and we continue to look for innovative ways to improve our services.

Contract disputes can be worrying and daunting.  With uncertainty over costs and the different possible outcomes of proceeding to court, we will always begin by outlining the strengths and weaknesses of the case so you know exactly where you stand.

Land and Property law is often complicated and challenging, we act in many construction and building disagreements for both claimants and defendants. Our lawyers are able to advise you on landlord and tenant disputes whether you have a tenant that has fallen into arrears, and you want your property back as quickly as possible, or you wish to defend a claim that has been made against you.

Nothing is more frustrating or harmful to your business than completing work as requested only to find that you have not been paid.  Debt recovery is a priority for any business and one of a number of specialist areas for our Solicitors.

We also have a team of expert Solicitors dealing with contested Grant of Probate should you believe that the wishes of someone have not been carried out properly or an estate has not been administrated correctly.  We are able to conduct claims brought by beneficiaries against an estate as well as advising and assisting executors.

We have a team of specialist Employment Solicitors that provide advice on not only the legal position but also the practical implications of your situation helping you make a fully informed decision on the impact of the route you want to take.

Our Solicitors also have diverse experience of advising a wide range of employers in Eastbourne, Hastings and across East Sussex including various NHS and Primary Care Trusts, schools, colleges, local government and care homes.  We are therefore fully aware of the additional terms and conditions of employment that bind workers within the public sectors and the additional safeguarding constraints that can impact care workers and those working with children and vulnerable adults.

Our lawyers are here to help and have particular expertise in settlement agreements, unfair dismissal and redundancy.  It is not always the case that if you find yourself in dispute with your employer that your case must go to court.  Some employers are willing to take a commercial view and pay compensation to bring litigation to a close.  Our Solicitors regularly advise on settlement agreements both in connection with private businesses and public authorities.  If you have been handed a settlement agreement and require some advice we have a team of experts waiting to help.
