Dispute Resolution

At some point in your life, you may be involved in a dispute, perhaps at work, with a neighbour, family member, business, or landlord.

We have a team of dispute resolution solicitors who have years of experience in helping clients resolve a wide range of disputes in an efficient and effective manner.

If you find yourself in a dispute it can be stressful and upsetting. Disputes can arise for many reasons and it can be hard to know what steps to take to resolve them.

There are several options that can be used to solve a dispute, and court proceedings should only be considered as a last resort. Wherever possible we will try and resolve matters outside of court via alternative dispute resolution methods. This helps to keep costs down and the matter from escalating to formal proceedings.

Areas of Expertise

Our dispute resolution solicitors can provide help and advice on a range of disputes, including:

  • Business Disputes
  • Civil Fraud and Investigations
  • Commercial and Contract Disputes
  • Financial Services Disputes
  • Insolvency Litigation
  • International and Cross-Border Disputes
  • Professional Negligence
  • Reputation and Media
  • Shareholders and Boardroom Disputes
  • Wills, Trusts, and Inheritance Disputes

Some disputes may require you to preserve a commercial or personal relationship, alongside the need to avoid any adverse publicity surrounding the dispute.

In these circumstances, we can work with our clients to avoid court and instead explore other practical and cost-effective avenues to resolve disputes, including mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

Negotiation

Negotiation is a process whereby the parties and their legal advisors seek to resolve the dispute by reaching an agreement either through written correspondence or a meeting between both sides.

Mediation

We understand that communication can sometimes break down between opposing parties, especially during civil proceedings. This can make it harder to resolve a dispute.

Mediation is a similar process to negotiating a settlement in a meeting. The key difference between negotiation and mediation is that mediation is conducted with the assistance of a third-party mediator. 

Our team is experienced in successfully representing clients in both civil and commercial mediation sessions.

Other Methods

In specific circumstances, other forms of ADR may be relevant such as Conciliation, Adjudication or Arbitration. Where relevant we will also advise you on these options.

Not every method of ADR is legally binding and so in understanding the nature of the specific dispute, we will advise you on your chances of success and the potential pros, cons, and outcomes of each option available to you.

Litigation

Where matters cannot be resolved outside of court, you may want to proceed with formal proceedings. If the situation arises, we can robustly defend or advance your position in court.
