Welcome to Whyte Fraser & Co

Legal Disputes and Debt Recovery

Fighting your corner to help you get the right result

Whyte Fraser & Co are a firm of dispute resolution/avoidance, debt recovery and civil/commercial litigation solicitors regulated by The Law Society of Scotland.

 

We pride ourselves in being pioneers in the field of dispute resolution and avoidance across Scotland. Our team is regularly involved in contentious work, helping your business with our expertise (in courts and tribunals and with Ombudsman complaints), fighting your corner to help you gain the right result, whether you are pursuing or defending a dispute.

 

We pride ourselves in helping clients to avoid and resolve disputes. We seek to resolve matters away from expensive litigation. We encourage alternative, lower cost forms of dispute resolution where suitable. However, sometimes that is simply not possible, and we have amassed thousands of hours of court appearances, having dealt with every conceivable type of hearing and dispute throughout Scotland and  beyond - from Stranraer to Wick and from Banff to Lochmaddy. There are few legal road trips (and flights) we haven’t taken.

 

With our solicitors working on cases in Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness to name but a few major locations, we’re highly skilled and ready to handle any dispute.

 

We also have fantastic partners in England who can handle disputes south of the border.

 

Our dispute resolution experience covers every sector of business including banking, construction, engineering, insurance, businesses (e.g. as between directors and shareholders), energy & natural resources, property, public sector and retail.

 

We also handle business and company disputes (shareholders, directors, misfeasance, wrongful trading etc) and private client disputes such as those involve death estates and trusts, homeownership and so on.

 

Dispute resolution starts with us listening to your situation. We’re in your corner to establish what matters most to you and to help your business. Our lawyers then form a plan of attack, anticipate the opponent’s moves, think fast on our feet and fight for you every step of the way.

 

Skilled in the Commercial Courts, Court of Session and Sheriff Court, tax and other tribunals, ICAS and other regulators, the Financial Services Ombudsman and other Ombudsmen our  proactive approach delivers, and our solicitors offer a personal, direct service. You will enjoy a single point of contact with a highly experienced solicitor from start to finish.

 

We must emphasise that there are alternatives to going to court. Our team can offer solutions to help you manage risk and save you unnecessary expense. These include round the table discussions, mediation, adjudication, arbitration and expert determination. Utilising Ombudsman complaints processes, coupled with our expertise in this area, can also help you resolve your dispute without unnecessary court costs.

 

It all comes down to our legal team listening to your situation and tailoring the right approach.

 

Whyte Fraser & Company are here to help you gain the result you seek!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Camscaff Ltd are more than happy to provide a testimonial for Whyte Fraser & Co for the debt recovery service provided for us.

We are very fortunate in that a lot of our clients we have had for years and have built a very trusting relationship with. This company was a one-off job and there was no relationship with the customer.

We have never had the need in all our years of trading (since 2002) to use the services of a debt recovery agent. We were very doubtful of recovering the debt from the company as we believed they had liquidated two previous companies. However, you were recommended to us by our bookkeeper Peter Gray and we decided to at least try and see if the debt could be recovered.

Your tenacity paid off and the debt was recovered in full in one payment.

Thank you for the first-class service provided.”
