Davey Law joins award-winning Escalate dispute resolution service


Well-known Gloucestershire law firm Davey Law has joined forces with Escalate, the ground-breaking dispute resolution service that is transforming how businesses address bad debt and other commercial disputes.

With offices in Cirencester and Gloucester, and a keen and committed team of legal experts, Davey Law has a long-standing reputation for real-world, pragmatic legal advice coupled with personal service. Its specialism in handling high value, complex personal injury cases is exactly the background needed to understand how to get the best possible outcome when it comes to commercial litigation too.

Thanks to its partnership with Escalate and its innovative and unique dispute resolution process, Davey Law is now able to offer business clients the opportunity to achieve prompt settlement to a wide range of bad debts and other commercial disputes, with a fixed fee payable only on a successful outcome and with no up-front costs.

The Escalate process has won many prestigious national awards since its inception in 2017, most recently winning the ‘NextGen Banking, Finance, & Business Services’ category at the Management Today NextGen Awards 2020.

Chris Clay, Managing Partner of Escalate, said:

“We’re very pleased to have Davey Law on board to help give businesses in and around Gloucestershire access to justice through the Escalate dispute resolution process.

“It’s estimated that £40 billion of commercial disputes and bad debt is written off each year by SMEs – and that’s now likely to be considerably higher due to the financial impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. Our mission is to help businesses recover the money they’re legitimately owed. In some cases that can mean the difference between continuing to trade or giving up. Our partnership with Davey Law will enable us to help even more Gloucestershire businesses to unlock cash tied up in disputes and other bad debts.”

Peter Davies, Managing Director and Head of Litigation at Davey Law, said:

“The Escalate process is simple, efficient and is making a real difference to businesses struggling with the impact of commercial disputes, so we’re looking forward to helping our clients benefit from this new service.

“The traditional commercial dispute resolution process has always been heavily stacked against the claimant because of the length of time it can take and the exposure to costs that comes with it, but by removing financial risk, shortening the process, and ensuring that the claimant remains the main beneficiary on settlement, we hope to make a real difference to businesses faced with the disruption caused by unresolved commercial disputes.

“We’re also looking forward to working more closely with other Escalate partner firms so that together we can provide the Gloucestershire business community with a complete range of business services.”
