The customer is king? The customer is always right? Maybe in a restaurant or shop. But what if you are an SME owner? Ignored by the government during COVID; dealing with IR35, Brexit and legal burdens such as Data Protection and GDPR all alone.
The reality? The customer is not the king; nor is he ever right: he is ignored and marginalised. JCLM is a crusader for the silent majority of SME owners and consumers who have been treated badly by those in power. It is our mission to restore fairness and balance to the market.
With our unique one stop shop monthly service, JCLM deals with many of the problems facing SME owners on a day to day and strategic level: problems with suppliers and employees, unpaid invoices, industry issues, legislation.
JCLM know how frustrating and damaging it is to be not paid on time. While we work with you to try and maintain business relationships, should a debt remain unpaid after it has fallen due, we has vast experience of the debt recovery process.
Our experience spans of all kinds of commercial litigation, ranging from defamation to property disputes, business disputes, business law matters, professional negligence (claims against surveyors and solicitors) and more besides.
We’re able to provide advice on your Terms of Business and those provided by your suppliers. This includes making any changes we consider are necessary as a result of legislative and industry requirements. We can also support you in disputes.
Accustomed to dealing with situations where a business or individual is exploiting your hard-earned ideas or knowledge base, we can request injunctions from the court in such matters and assist in claiming compensation.
We can draft restrictive covenants which preclude former employees from disrupting your business. We believe that prevention is better than cure, and have in place bespoke HR procedures to enable problems with employees to be dealt with early on.
JCLM provides advice on all business law matters- including disagreements among shareholders and directors’ disputes- in a timely and cost-effective manner. We believe in resolving tensions sensibly and calmly wherever possible.
Industry risk is all around you. It is our job to tell you about it. JCLM only works in industry sectors it understands. We’ll become your In-House Solicitor advising on risk, compliance and litigation for a monthly fee.
