Often, the team at Chadwick Lawrence work with a number of third party organisations, adopting an all round approach to resolving disputes. The team at Chadwick Lawrence also have experience of advising individuals and organisations in respect of pre-publication material, carrying out risk assessment analysis, prior to publication of material that may expose the publisher to some form of adverse legal action. We are able to advise both pre or post publication of material, regardless of platform.
The Media Law Team at Chadwick Lawrence is lead by Asma Iqbal and Joshua Smith, who both have significant high level litigation experience, meaning that the team is able to effectively advise clients at both the pre-litigation stage and also at the Court proceedings stage, should it be necessary to issue formal Court proceedings. The team prides itself on offering a bespoke service to each client and testimonials provided to the team state that their approach is discreet, personal and commercially focused.
Aside from the strong legal experience that the team has, the team prides itself on adopting a client centred approach to resolving disputes. Client’s objectives are assessed and managed from an early point in time and they are also always in control of their legal spend. Chadwick Lawrence has experience of working with third party funders to explore alternative methods of funding, as well as exploring conditional fee agreement funding methods (CFA’s). Not every case is suitable for these types of funding but the team at Chadwick Lawrence are able to explore this with you, them having the appropriate connections to allow this to happen.
Clients are provided with pricing options at the outset and continually throughout matters, so that you are always in control of your legal spend. An innovative approach is taken to pricing, thereby allowing clients to chose the best method of funding, applicable to their circumstances.
The team commits to speaking to clients in plain English, in a language that they can understand. Clients expect law firms to be able to act within the law, but the team at Chadwick Lawrence believe that what sets them apart, is their ability to effectively manage client relations, at what can be a very serious stage in either an individual’s life or indeed during the lifecycle of a company.
