COMMERCIAL ENERGY CLAIMS
Energy brokers are an important source of information for companies in their energy procurement and an important sales channel for gas and electric suppliers.
Energy brokers are completely unregulated, which can often mean that businesses have lost money as a result of the lack transparency in the industry, leaving them open to sharp sales practices by the energy brokers.
Gas and electric procurement can be a complex area for businesses, and one that is growing in importance, as energy costs rise. Research indicates that many businesses look to energy brokers when selecting their energy tariffs.
Businesses and smaller companies in particular, are especially vulnerable to 'rogue'
brokers. Many business energy contracts are said to be 'bespoke'. Energy brokers often do not tell business customers how much they are being paid by the supplier, or whether they are receiving commission.
These undisclosed payments or 'hidden commissions' means that some energy brokers are charging customers excessive sums for their energy supply.
We work with clients to investigate whether they have been overcharged on their energy contracts and to consider whether there is a claim that can be brought against the energy broker or the supplier.
These sorts of claims may be suitable cases for
No Win - No -Fee agreements.
