Business Disputes – Quick & Cost Effective Resolution: Seminar
Tuesday 13th December 2016: 8.30am – 10.30am in the Boardroom at the Northop site of Coleg Cambria
Nobody likes commercial disputes but they are part of everyday business life. However, all too often SMEs lose money by failing to tackle disputes early on and worse still, SMEs face a litigation landscape which is hostile. This FREE seminar will be of interest to anyone who wants to know more about the tools that they can employ to stand up for themselves through the courts if they need to. The interactive business seminar will be led by John Lambe, Head of Litigation at Hillyer McKeown Solicitors and will cover:
- Access to justice for SMEs: Problems and solutions (John Lambe)
- How to win in the small claims court – A practical guide (Michelle Mayoh)
- Getting paid: Avoiding the pitfalls (Alex Irwin)
- Resolving disputes: Alternatives to litigation (John Lambe)
We will show you how to win in the small claims court – If writing off such debts is not an option you want to settle for, we will provide a step-by-step guide, including practical tips to maximise your chances of successfully recovering what’s owed to you.
If you run out of cash, you run out of business – It has been reported that 90% of businesses fail within the first two years of trading. This can be down to a number of factors, but usually this is down to failing get to grip with cash flow. We will show you how to streamline your collection policies and provide advice on the collection options and procedures available should something go wrong.
