Our Experts / Ben Dougal
An up and coming solicitor in Commercial Litigation.
Ben has worked in private practice dealing with a range of civil litigation claims since 2007, and has experience acting for both claimants and defendants. He acts for companies and individuals involved in commercial disputes, primarily breach of contract claims, and has experience of acting on claims ranging in value from under £50,000 up to in excess of £1m. Ben also has experience in group litigation work involving banking disputes on behalf of both consumers and commercial clients, and has been heavily involved in the firm’s recent group action work, such actions ranging in size from 20 claimants to in excess of 6,000 claimants. Ben also has experience of acting on claims for directors and shareholders.
He has previously worked at a large international firm within their Defendant Insurer Department, primarily acting for insurers and local authorities defending claims for injuries sustained either within the workplace or in a public area. Since working at Clear Commercial, Ben has also worked within their Personal Injury Department, however this time working for the injured party.
Like the rest of Clear Commercial’s experts, Ben will always look to fund claims on an alternative funding model to the traditional hourly rate model by either working on a fixed fee basis or accepting some of the risk by acting on a contingent basis.
