Dispute Resolution

We appreciate that few people willingly choose to be involved in a legal dispute. However, from time to time an issue may arise in their lives that requires legal advice and action – whether it is a positive step that they need to take to protect their rights, or defending a civil law claim brought against them.

We provide high quality advice and assistance in those situations. Our Dispute Resolution team is highly experienced and highly regarded.

Whatever the reason for the dispute we focus on trying to get to a solution, and our clients’ desired outcome, as quickly and cost effectively as possible.

We consider the facts and legal position in the case and advise our clients on prospects of success at an early stage. We use our experience and expertise to advise on the right strategy to employ in the case to bring it to a successful conclusion.  We pride ourselves on being approachable and responsive to our clients' needs, so that we can be fully supportive during what can be a stressful time.

Many disputes are actually resolved through negotiation or other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution, such as mediation. Few cases proceed to a fully contested trial in litigation. Having practical and commercial advice, as well as having technical legal and procedural knowledge, enables our clients to get the right advice to resolve their case.

We appreciate that legal proceedings can be expensive. We provide details of a clear basis of our charges and projected costs in the case so that our clients understand the financial commitment that they may need to make.

We have a highly regarded dispute team, recognised by the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners independent guides to the legal profession, with long experience and wide expertise in a variety of legal disputes.
