Business and commercial disputes can usually be resolved without litigation if the right legal partner is chosen to deal with it, adopting an appropriate and effective dispute resolution strategy (potentially ADR) that takes proper account of the issues, amounts involved and costs.

We appreciate that in some cases litigation is unavoidable and in such cases litigation will be conducted by our employees through an associated company which is regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA). 

However, increasingly, the courts now generally expect that conflict resolution attempts have been made to solve disagreements between disputants before the case arrives in court. The resolution of disputes between two or more parties avoids  potential litigation, saves time and money in all types of disputes, and avoids the need for commercial litigation.

There are 4 key methods of alternative dispute resolution: direct negotiations, the mediation process, neutral evaluation and the arbitration process.

We specialise in

Inheritance Dispute Solicitors

Estate Trusts & Inheritance

We act for clients in a wide range of contentious probate matters including disputes with executors and administrators over estate administration, challenging the validity of a Will and claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 where the Will or intestacy rules do not make reasonable financial provision for the client.

Insolvency Dispute Solicitors

Contentious Insolvency

We have extensive experience in dealing with insolvency matters for businesses and individuals acting for insolvency practitioners, creditors, debtors and other stakeholders and often involving substantial sums of money, for example, transactions at an undervalue, preference claims, reservation of title claims and claims against directors for breach of fiduciary and other duties.

Landlord & Tenant Dispute Solicitors

Property and Landlord & Tenant Disputes

We are experienced in representing clients involved in property or landlord and tenant disputes and we will always deliver logical and pragmatic advice and, where appropriate, try to resolve the dispute through negotiation, mediation or other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

We regularly use ADR to resolve disputes in a pragmatic and cost-effective manner. Costly, stressful and drawn-out litigation can be avoided by the use of ADR in commercial dispute resolution cases and other types of disputes and we regularly use mediation to resolve disputes. Our clients are often surprised at how seemingly intractable and adversarial legal disputes can be resolved, and a way forward agreed on, using ADR.

Man and woman talking at desk

Misrepresentation Claims

We have successfully brought claims for misrepresentation following the purchase of property where the seller has given false, incorrect or misleading information to the buyers about the property during the conveyancing process.
