We know the prospect of paying legal fees is off-putting, so our civil litigation team have fixed our fees for small claim cases, meaning we don’t charge by the hour. And you don’t even have to instruct us for the whole case – just use us for the parts where you feel in need of help and limit your costs accordingly.

Small Claims Court Explained
The small claims court is essentially a simplified court procedure that is designed to resolve smaller cases in an easy and efficient manner. For a case to be eligible for the small claims court, the financial value of the claim in question cannot be more than £10,000.
Typically, the small claims court is there to resolve low-scale disputes between people, organisations or both. Some of the issues that can be resolved in a small claims court include:
- Low value/straightforward disputes between private landlords and tenants
- Unpaid bills, fines, loans or debts
- Mis-sold goods
- A refusal to fulfil a warranty (e.g. in respect of a vehicle, or household goods)
- Contractual disputes
- Housing disrepair
If you have a small claims dispute, Lupton Fawcett can offer a menu of fixed-cost services designed to help you navigate your way through the system, and give you the best chance of getting justice.
We act for both claimants and defendants on a wide range of cases, whether they are businesses or individuals. For more information on our small claims court services and their fixed fees, view our costs sheet here.
