In a dispute there are alternative solutions that are far more productive than locking horns

Disagreements between people are an unfortunate fact of life. These civil disputes range from seeking recompense for shoddy building work to conflicts with neighbours about boundary lines and many more in between.

Finding yourself in this situation can be challenging so we offer a free half hour, no obligation, consultation to give an initial indication of your legal position and options. We deliver concise, constructive advice in plain English and are fully focused on achieving a solution that’s right for you.

Taking legal action often proves to be a daunting, emotive and ultimately destructive process, so we guide our clients through alternative options that may resolve the dispute including negotiation, mediation and arbitration.

No-one wants to end up in court, and whilst we explore every opportunity to reach a settlement, sometimes the parties are too far apart and litigation is the only route. If this happens, our considerable experience representing clients in both the County Court and the High Court ensures your case is handled in the most effective and successful manner.

Whilst litigation costs can be disproportionately high, we provide a well-considered estimate at the beginning to make sure you are fully aware of the likely expense of bringing or defending a claim. We may also be able to offer you a degree of flexibility when it comes to funding; in a limited number of circumstances we offer fixed fees or agree to fund a case on a no-win no-fee basis. Please call us if you wish to discuss this further.
