GENERAL LITIGATION

Our litigation team at Peacock Johnston is capable of applying our skills to all areas of litigation for commercial clients and businesses, including contract disputes, insurance disputes and damages’ claims.

As with all the discussions within Peacock Johnston, our litigation team strives to provide practical, expert advice in a cost-effective manner.  We fully appreciate that our business clients are seeking a commercial solution that works, and our comprehensive and diligent attitude often involves us advising on how best to avoid future commercial disputes.

LICENSING APPEALS

Refusal of a license application acts as a formidable barrier for both individuals and companies seeking to enter a broad range of service provision. As a result, it is important to be appropriately represented when seeking to appeal a decision made by one of the Licensing Boards throughout Scotland.

Our team at Peacock Johnston can provide specialist advice on licensing appeals, where there are very strict time limits and statutory grounds for bringing appeals, and may arrange representation at Licensing Board Hearings where necessary.

DEBT RECOVERY

At Peacock Johnston, we achieve excellent results by adopting a different approach from other debt recovery firms and agencies.

We are aware of the effect that that the current economic climate has had on many businesses, especially regarding their ability to pay suppliers.  However, we also appreciate that your business is not seeking to provide debtors with an interest-free loan.  Cash flow is integral to the success of business, and our approach to recovering debts takes this into account.

The approach of our highly qualified team will often be successful in recovering more for you than the amount that you were originally owed by your customer.  We combine courtesy with firmness and persistence, and by making sure that the debtor pays costs, interest and statutory compensation, to minimise any costs to you.  Furthermore, as we build our relationship with clients over months and years, we will work with you on an ongoing basis with a view to improving your own internal recovery procedures, and even preventing debts from arising in the first instance.

If you have outstanding debts owed to you, we can offer a service which we believe is highly effective in recovering your monies, often at a low cost or no cost at all.

BUILDING DISPUTES

Our litigation team at Peacock Johnston has developed a significant amount of experience and specialism in building disputes.  We fully appreciate that our commercial clients are seeking to reach a cost-effective solution to their problems, and it is our goal to help them to achieve this.  Furthermore, as a result of our fully comprehensive and meticulous efforts, we often seek to advise our clients on how best to avoid similar building disputes in the future.

Where individuals have disputes with builders it is essential to discuss fully the contract terms of any transaction at an early stage in order to seek rectifications and/or damages.

Our Approach


When you first make an enquiry with us, an experienced member of our medical law team will discuss your case with you. We will then arrange a detailed meeting to discuss your case and the surrounding circumstances. We fully appreciate that geography can sometimes prevent us from meeting with our clients, but in such an instance we are more than happy to rely on telephone or e-mail exchanges. It is also possible for a member of our team to visit those clients less physically able to meet with us in our office.
