How Lexoo works

What is your dispute about?

Disputes can arise in any business area and can involve customers, suppliers or even employees. And they can be of any size. We’ve been asked to source quotes for straightforward debt disputes to complex, multi-jurisdictional, multi-million dollar disputes.

Great commercial litigation lawyers will first try to settle a dispute. However, sometimes the only choice is to take the matter to formal proceedings (usually court or arbitration). The initial step usually involves a pre-action letter. From there, the process (and complexities) will depend on the type of dispute and the money at stake.

Lexoo lawyers have dealt with many different types of dispute. Here are some of the most common:

Commercial Disputes

A commercial dispute is essentially any dispute between two (or more) businesses. It also includes disputes between individuals and businesses. Typical examples include disputes concerning outstanding invoices, provision of poor services, cancellation or early termination of contracts, mis-selling, and more.

Founder Disputes

Founder disputes are those which arise within a business between key members of that business. The legal relationships between key members are usually set out in documents such as Articles of Association, Shareholders Agreements or Partnership Agreement. However, often with startups it can be more complex as these sorts of documents may not be in place.

Intellectual Property Disputes

The intellectual property of a business (be it a trademark, copyright, patent or trade secret) is usually key to the future growth and success of that business. It is also often extremely valuable. If someone is infringing your business’ intellectual property, a specialist lawyer can help you to protect it.

Common disputes arise when one party believes another has used, sold or imported its patented product or process; used work under copyright without permission; made, offered or sold its registered design for commercial gain; or used a trademark that’s identical or similar to one registered.

Employment Disputes

Employment disputes are a specialised category and typically involve a breach of employment contract (the agreement between your company and your employee, detailing each of your rights and responsibilities and how you manage the day-to-day relationship).

How much can you expect to pay?

We’ve seen hundreds of enquiries for dispute resolution come through Lexoo and prices can vary greatly depending on the nature of the dispute. While these figures are simply to give a rough estimate, typical fixed-fee quote for the first few stages of a straightforward matter typically range as follows (all figures exclusive of VAT):

Past the initial stages, the cost will depend largely on the value of the dispute, its complexity, how the other party behaves, how long it takes to resolve and whether formal proceedings are required.
