Litigation

Disagreements are a part of life and the law is here to help resolve them. Most people, however, regard getting a solicitor involved as the last resort. That’s because it is seen as expensive – but in the long run it can save you time, money and heartache.

We take a very pragmatic approach, with the aim of getting you the best possible result in the most cost effective manner. You can expect professional and practical advice that focuses on achieving your objectives with the minimum risk, expense and delay.

We provide a bespoke service and help you select the appropriate tool from a variety of options to secure the desired outcome. These include:

Negotiation

Whilst we are wholly committed to pursuing your best interests we are also well practiced in the art of judging which battles to fight and which points to concede. We will do our utmost to avoid strategies likely to result in impasse, preferring to deliver clear and constructive solutions which lead to swift settlements rather than protracted court proceedings.

Mediation

We have extensive experience of mediation and regard it as far preferable to court proceedings. Mediation is not only a more cost effective way of resolving disputes but allows you to maintain a greater degree of control over the outcome. Working relationships can be maintained, risks are minimised, costs are much lower while everyone can swiftly put the dispute to bed.

We have a wealth of experience in guiding clients through mediation and can help with selecting a mediator, preparing for mediation and representing you at mediation itself.

Arbitration

In commercial contracts there is a clause which requires clients to refer disputes to arbitration. We have a proven track record of representing clients through the Arbitration process and presenting your case to achieve the best possible outcome.

Litigation

In some circumstances litigation through the courts is unavoidable. We have the expertise to advise when and where to issue proceedings, as well as when and how to defend claims which have been brought against you. We have strong connections with local and national chambers and have acted for clients in litigation claims in a wide variety of disputes, including:

  • Partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Debt recovery and insolvency
  • Construction disputes
  • Mortgage fraud claims
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Property and land disputes
  • Contentious probate claims
