Tim Berg

I have run a business and I know how much of a diversion disputes are. I know you want straight forward advice and solutions. Insolvency problems are the most stressful that any person can face. Do not worry! get advice as soon as possible.

Tim is a dispute resolution solicitor who has over 25 years’ experience litigating and resolving cases for clients of all sizes. He has acted for multinational PLCs, small high street businesses and individuals and everything in between. Tim never forgets that the consequences of a dispute are very significant for the participants. Litigation is expensive, but not just in money. It’s expensive in many ways: in time, in diversion from real life, in stress. Sometimes its unavoidable and rights need to be enforced quickly to the full extent of the law. Each case is different and he treats them as such.
