Dispute Resolution

Whilst we work hard to positively avoid disputes, they are an inevitable part of life. As a firm, we would always seek to resolve any conflict or dispute in the most straightforward and cost effective way possible for all involved. We are pleased to say that, when involved from an early stage, the majority of disputes we come across are resolved without the need for lengthy or costly court involvement.

However, where resolution is not an option, our team of litigators will work with you to determine the most effective approach.

With 18 specialist litigation lawyers, we are one of the largest teams in the South. Whatever your dispute, our team will help you through it.

Wherever possible, we seek to settle disputes via negotiation. However, there are occasions when Court proceedings are necessary and you can be assured that our team will present your case robustly and efficiently to obtain the best result on your behalf.

We recognise that cost issues are important to you and are transparent about our fees. Before any work is undertaken we will outline what we propose to do on your behalf and provide you with written confirmation of our estimated total fees. We will consult you if the total fees are likely to exceed the original estimate and always provide you with an indication of the timescale it will take to complete your matter.

There are a number of methods that can be used to meet the costs involved in settling a dispute, which include Legal Expenses Insurance. We will explain the funding methods available and recommend the most suitable option based on your circumstances.

The team is recommended in Chambers (2017), with clients saying we are:“… excellent, very client-focused and very commercial.” and “… very thorough and practical.”.  Richard Cook also receives a special mention in Chambers for his wealth of experience in commercial litigation.
