Disputes

Consumer Disputes

Debt Recovery

If you are in dispute with a supplier or customer, or another person or organisation, then we can help you resolve this.

We will give you clear and honest advice on your case from the outset. If your case is not worth pursuing or is high risk then we will tell you at the earliest opportunity to ensure costs are not wasted. This clear and honest advice ensures that we have an extremely high success rate.

We will try and resolve your case in the most time and cost effective way. We will always consider whether an application for strike out/summary judgment of the claim or defence can be made to ensure the matter does not progress to trial unnecessarily. We will also advise on alternative methods to try and resolve this case, for example mediation.

We will advise you on the best tactical steps to take to ensure you are in the very best position.

Neighbour Disputes

If you are in dispute with your neighbour regarding a boundary or party wall we can provide you with advice on the best way to resolve this.

Neighbour disputes can get expensive and the costs can get out of proportion to the dispute so it is always important to try and resolve these yourself first of all. Litigation should be considered as a last resort.

If you are unable to resolve your dispute feel free to contact us to discuss the best way forward.
