Dealing with a dispute, be it small or large, can be a particularly stressful experience, especially if you are unsure about the costs and procedures involved. Our Litigation Team regularly handles a wide range of disputes, and we can provide practical and specialist advice with the aim of resolving your dispute quickly and cost-effectively.
We have helped with the following situations:
- Issues between you and your landlord
- Boundary and property disagreements
- Conflicts with retailers, suppliers or service providers
- Problems with contracts (employment and others)
- Claims on the estate of someone who has passed away
- Professional negligence (medical negligence or other)
- Where you are having problems repaying debts
Wherever possible, we always seek to settle disputes by negotiation. In many cases, disputes can be resolved by using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as mediation and arbitration. These procedures tend to be more informal and less adversarial, as well as less costly, than going to Court. Our Litigation Team will work with you to reach a mutually satisfactory outcome to both parties.
There are occasions however, when court action is necessary. Rest assured that our Litigation Team will provide a robust and efficient presentation of your case in order to gain the best possible result.
We aim to provide a high quality service and will deal with your matter in a friendly and professional manner. We also work hard to ensure that there is regular communication to ensure you are kept informed about the progress of your case.
Disputes relating to the exact boundaries of land that you own are increasingly common due to mistakes made when your boundaries were drawn or when previous owners moved fences beyond the location that they should have been in.
We can give specialist advice at an initial appointment to help you ascertain whether you are likely to be successful and also give you vital information about how the case can be funded.
We can arrange for surveyors to be instructed and detailed plans prepared over the boundaries with an assessment and comparison of the Land Registry title to determine the exact boundary locations. If necessary we can make application for you for adverse possession or defend such an application if one is being made over land that is owned by you. The sooner you seek advice for disputes such as this the better as disputes can often be resolved quickly and with minimal expense.
