Avoiding Common Pitfalls When Issuing a Statutory Demand - James McHugh

Trinity Business and Property Barrister, James McHugh was a speaker at Chambers’ Commercial Litigation Conference held in Leeds in 2022. James delivered a session entitled:
‘Stand and Deliver’ - Avoiding the Common Pitfalls When Issuing a Statutory Demand

Statutory Demands are a regular part of the commercial litigator’s toolbox. When used properly they can be a speedy and cost-effective way of recovering money on behalf of clients given the serious consequence on non-compliance. Unfortunately, those serious consequences also mean that when Statutory Demands are not used correctly, then they can lead to prolonged and expensive satellite litigation.

James' talk highlights some of the most common areas of dispute relating to Statutory Demands that he frequently deals with and in turn how to avoid them.

James’ highly practical session covers:
- Service
- Disputed Debts
- Offers to Compound/Secure the debt

There is a handout that accompanies the session. If you do not have a copy and would like one, please email stevew@trinitychambers.co.uk
