Dispute Resolution

Sadly, disputes are a fact of life. But with the right approach, the majority of conflicts can be resolved without lengthy – or costly – court involvement. Where resolution isn’t an option, we will fight your corner with strength and tenacity.

Our 18 specialist litigation lawyers share a single goal: to resolve things in the most straightforward and cost-effective way possible. Where we can, we aim to settle disputes through a negotiation method known as alternative dispute resolution (ADR). But if litigation is the best or only option, we will work closely with you to get the result you want.

Of course, settling disputes costs money. So from day one we are transparent about our fees. Before we do anything, we will provide an outline of our involvement and give you a written estimate. We will always then consult you if these fees are likely to change. We’ll also explain other funding options – such as legal aid or legal expenses insurance – which could help meet some of your litigation costs and fees.

“Excellent, very client-focused and very commercial… very thorough and practical.”
