Advice from Ridgemont

The Small Claims Court process is designed for low value claims.  If you have a claim, the value of which exceeds £10,000, then the claim ought to be brought in either the County Court or the High Court, depending on the value of the claim.  Both of those are adverse costs environments, which means, generally, the loser pays the winner’s costs.  Before commencing/defending such a claim, it is important that you get in contact with us on or on +44(0)204 579 8686, so that we can provide you with advice as to the merits of your claim/defence and the likely costs involved.
