Escalate, the commercial dispute and bad debt resolution service for SMEs, has been named the winner in the ‘NextGen Banking, Finance, & Business Services’ category at the inaugural Management Today Next Gen Awards.

The Awards, which are organised by leading business magazine Management Today, seek to ‘to shine a spotlight on the next generation of ground-breaking, high-growth businesses’ in all of the main sectors of the economy across the UK.

Chris Clay, Managing Director and Founding Partner of Escalate, says: “The Next Gen Awards were conceived well before the current coronavirus crisis, and our win is recognition of Escalate’s important role in helping SMEs to unlock tens of millions of pounds in cash from their balance sheets over the past few years.

“That role is all the more important right now as small and mid-sized businesses across the country face a serious cash squeeze and focus on survival.

“Our message is very straightforward: if your business suffers a financial loss because of a dispute, bad debt or late payment, don’t simply write it off, and don’t automatically assume that the costs of recovery outweigh the benefits. We’re here to help you get your money back.

“This award is a testament to our staff and our Escalate partner firms across the UK who share our vision of supporting the UK SME community; we would like to thank them for their support in helping us achieve so much together since we launched three years ago”.

Management Today’s Next Gen Award is the latest prestigious award won by Escalate, following ‘Innovation of the Year’ at the British Accountancy Awards, ‘Best Collaboration Initiative’ at the Lawyer Awards, ‘Excellence in Business Development’ at the Law Society Excellence Awards, the ‘Legal Services Innovation Award’ at The British Legal Awards and ‘Innovation of the Year’ at the Modern Law Awards. Escalate was also shortlisted for ‘New Business of the Year’ at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, marking it out as one of the top ten most promising scale-up businesses in the country and one to watch.

Norfolk Chambers of Commerce have partnered with regional accountancy and law firms Price Bailey LLP and Ashtons Legal to deliver a new member service, which will give Norfolk businesses an alternative cost-effective way of resolving business disputes. This is being done through the multi-award winning Escalate dispute resolution service.

Many SMEs leave legal and financial disputes unresolved because they fear the potential cost involved without a guaranteed positive outcome – Escalate can help remove these barriers. The most tangible key benefit of the service is that it carries no financial risk to the client; a business which pursues a dispute in this way will only pay a fee if a successful settlement is achieved. This is great news for small and medium size companies, and will empower them to challenge, in particular, larger businesses in a way that they might otherwise not have done. 

This service is being rolled out nationally, with East Anglia being one of the first regions to benefit. We are excited to be able to be able to be early adopters of the service and to introduce it to Chambers’ members as another key area of business support. Price Bailey LLP and Ashtons Legal both have long-established reputations and credibility in this area so harnessing their expertise to help our members in this cost-effective way is a very positive move.

Commenting on the new partnership, Tom Bailey, Partner at Ashtons Legal said:

“Escalate’s mission is to help the SME community so that the £40 billion that’s written off each year as bad debt is reduced. In our view, a bad debt is just a commercial dispute that didn’t get resolved. Escalate is already helping SMEs to recover more than £50 million that is currently locked up in commercial disputes. The combination of the Norfolk Chambers of Commerce, Price Bailey and Ashtons Legal is a game-changing proposition to help members in the region with their cashflow and avoid some of the inevitable bumps in the road that SME’s experience.”

To celebrate this new member service and to provide more information, a free launch seminar will be held on Thursday 20 June 2019 from 3.30pm – 5pm at the offices of Price Bailey LLP in Norwich.
