Price Bailey’s dispute resolution partner firm, Escalate, wins the grand slam

Price Bailey is very proud that our partner firm, Escalate, who offer a ground-breaking commercial dispute resolution service, have won their third national award, completing a unique grand slam of major honours.

Escalate helps SMEs to achieve a prompt settlement to a wide range of commercial disputes, with fixed fees payable only on a successful outcome and no upfront costs.

Escalate was awarded ‘Excellence in Business Development’ at the Law Society Excellence Awards on 17 October.

This latest recognition completes a unique grand slam of major awards for Escalate, which was also named ‘Innovation of the Year’ at the British Accountancy Awards and ‘Best Collaboration Initiative’ at the Lawyer Awards.

Matt Howard, Partner at Price Bailey, said: “We’re all incredibly proud that Escalate has been recognised by both the legal and accountancy professions in three major areas: innovation, collaboration and business development.

“Completing this grand slam is a unique achievement – nobody else has won a hattrick of awards across the main professional services disciplines in 12 months – and a reflection of the genuinely pioneering approach that Escalate have developed. This is backed up by the demand that we’re seeing from businesses for the Escalate process – we’re already helping clients to recover more than £40 million that is locked up in commercial disputes and, through our ever-expanding network of partners.

“We would like to congratulate Escalate for making this historic achievement a reality.”
