What Clients Say

Originally we placed our case to recoup losses from a Builder who claimed that they had run out of finance and were unable to complete the contract we had to self fund the completion of the work.

We approached a Solicitor’s practice and they advised that after many months are investigation they felt that the builder could not repay the amount. We approached Stripes and they offered a no win no fee approached and we accepted.

Immediately they began proceedings against the Builder and they Court accepted the Claim and the Builder agreed to pay off the debt. Since then we have had a full settlement which Stripes concluded on our behalf.
