Dispute resolution & litigation
Dispute resolution is a method of resolving disputes or claims between individuals, companies, local authorities and government departments.
Generally, such matters fall into two categories. One is based on a contract being an agreement between two or more parties and the other is based on a civil wrong, caused by one party to another deliberately or negligently. The range of disputes based on a contract can vary from the relatively minor case of the purchase of a defective item, such as an electric kettle, to a multi-million pound claim arising as a result of a penalty clause in a building contract.
If you are involved in a dispute with another individual or company, we can advise on your chances of success and the possible value of your claim. We can negotiate on your behalf and, if necessary, commerce of defend proceedings in the County Court or High Court.
