Litigation & Dispute Resolution
The Litigation and Dispute Resolution Team act for private individuals to find a solution focused on your needs, always seeking a successful outcome in the most cost effective manner. Our experienced and skilled team will support and guide you through the litigation process in a professional manner. We use pre action protocols and alternative dispute resolution procedures to try and keep you out of Court whenever that is appropriate and we actively explore your options to try and find a solution that is right for you. We are able to refer cases to independent and accredited mediators whenever mediation offers the best chance of finding a resolution of your dispute. We provide cost information at the outset and will assist you in looking at your funding options including the availability of legal expenses insurance. We offer a fixed fee initial interview at £180 including VAT, and we are always happy to have a without obligation initial interview on the telephone to see if we can assist you before you arrange to come and see us.
We appear in disputes before the High Court, County Court, arbitrations, Leasehold Valuation Tribunals, Lands Tribunals, and Public Inquiries. We use selected barristers and have access to specialist experts to assist in case investigation.
