Claims and Disputes
OUR CLAIMS AND DISPUTES SERVICES
Whatever the nature of your dispute our specialist team are here to make the process as stress free as possible.
Disputes come in all forms and sizes; be it a dispute at work, with a neighbour, where money is owed by you or someone claims you owe money, or you have a contractual dispute. The list is endless...
Why use a solicitor for a dispute?
It is always hoped that a dispute can be settled by negotiation. We can help you with the negotiation and advise as to the best way forward, in a practical and straight forward manner.
If the dispute is not concluded by successful negotiations, the matter will need to be determined either by court litigation or an alternative form of dispute resolution.
We are here to guide you through the complexities of the path forward, protecting your best interests.
Will I have to go to Court?
Court is always viewed as a last resort but this may be the only option available. Our Dispute Resolution team have experience of representing clients in all types of Civil court proceedings.
We can provide you with the representation that you need.
