BladeLaw Logo - Small Claims 

'Small Claims' is the term applied by the court (generally) to disputes where the value at stake is less than £10,000. That might be a lot of money to you and I, but it is small enough that the courts impose different rules to 'limit' the costs. To limit the costs that parties expend on small claims, the court severely limits the legal expenses that can be recovered from the losing side. The idea is that the process is simplified and litigants don't need a solicitor. Most clients disagree.

Many solicitors refuse to help with small claims at all because they can't earn enough from them. BladeLaw can help. We take a different approach. We can't avoid charging you something and we can't make the costs recoverable from the other side, but we can offer advice in bite-sized pieces at a very low cost. This won't solve all problems. If you need to claim £500, spending £500 on legal advice that you won't be able to claim back from the other side doesn't make commercial sense. If your claim is worth a bit more though, we can help.

The small claims process generally runs as follows:

Here's how BladeLaw might be able to help. In most cases, you can choose whichever pieces of advice you want depending on which parts of the process you find most challenging.
