BBF CONSULTING LTD DO NOT PROVIDE AND ARE NOT INDEMNIFIED FOR THE PROVISION OF LEGAL ADVICE. SHOULD YOU WISH TO OBTAIN FORMAL LEGAL ADVICE, YOU MUST PRESENT THE PAPERS TO YOUR OWN SOLICITORS TO OBTAIN SUCH ADVICE.
If court proceedings have been issued regarding a personal guarantee or related issue, very urgent attention is required. The cost and time involved attempting to defend a court action can be extensive and there can be a heavy price to pay both financially and emotionally. It is unusual for the matter to have progressed so far unless the organisation feel (rightly or wrongly) that it has come to the end of the line. We cannot stress enough the importance of getting the right support immediately because time will definitely be money if there is any further delay.
We are not solicitors, but we can help. Our legal executive with 40 years banking experience will be beneficial to you in this regard, so do get in contact.
If there is more than 14 days, there is still not much time, so for us to be able to help you in a timely manner, please get the papers to us (NOT by post) by either of the following methods: email firstname.lastname@example.org or fax: 0207 681 3958.
If you have a court deadline within the next 14 days (i.e. filing of papers such as, say, a defence or attendance at a hearing):
This is obviously quite late in the day for the situation to be recovered but, in most instances, something can be done. However, in such cases, we would have to charge an upfront fee before providing any support. If you email/fax/dropbox the papers to us and give us a call we can have a preliminary discussion and advise you how much that upfront fee will be.
If you decide not to contact us, we can’t recommend strongly enough the need to get proper legal advice.
