Suing: What You Need to Know as a Business

How should I collect evidence for my claim?

Collecting evidence to support your case can be a painstaking process, and you should consult your lawyer to find out exactly what to include. In general, you should follow these guidelines:

  • Be comprehensive– if you think something is at all relevant, include it
  • Collect evidence quickly – this is doubly important if you plan to use witness statements
  • Get it in writing – Written evidence can be used earlier and it carries more weight than uncorroborated statements. Your solicitor will normally take written witness statements.
