Personal Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Finding yourself in some sort of dispute can be a stressful place to be. Tactics, costs and procedures are usually unfamiliar territory, and that’s why it’s good to get a specialist dispute resolution lawyer involved as early as you can.

Some disagreements are quickly sorted out, perhaps by some behind-the-scenes advice from a member of our team, or a well-worded letter or conversation. But that’s not true of every dispute; some take time and expertise to unravel. Tell us about your problem and we’ll give you clear plan for sorting it out.

Being specialists in dispute resolution, we are results-focused. It’s our job to get you out of a difficult situation as quickly, cleanly and inexpensively as possible, with all due regard to the intricacies of your situation – your relationships, for example. We handle all sorts of issues, from problems with neighbours, to faulty goods, to poor professional services. Some are more complex than others. Some are higher value. But all are handled with impeccable care, strategic thought and legal expertise.

Although we are skilled advocates, we will always try to settle your dispute before it gets to court. As well as being members of accredited panels and professional associations, our lawyers are skilled negotiators, experienced in alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation and arbitration. We’ll discuss your options with you and help you decide on the best way forward.

We’ll also be clear and upfront about our fees. We want you to understand exactly what we’ll charge and what you will get for your money. It could be a fixed fee, or a no win, no fee arrangement - it depends on the type of dispute you are involved in.  Whichever yours is suited to, you will know from the outset where you stand, and there won’t be any surprises along the way.
