Resolving Disputes

If you are involved in a dispute you will want to resolve the dispute as quickly and cheaply as possible.

We can provide realistic advice on the options available to resolve the matter, via arbitration, negotiation or litigation. We can then pursue the appropriate course of action to resolve the dispute in the most cost effective way. Wherever possible, we will assist you to avoid the disruption and costs of litigation by encouraging parties to negotiate a settlement before the case reaches Court.

We aim to resolve your disputes and bring them to a successful conclusion but, when required, our services extend to providing full representation in Court.

The sort of disputes that we can assist you with are as follows:

Debt recovery

We can help your business maintain cash flow by providing debt recovery services and pursuing debtors on your behalf. From recovering a single debt to dealing with all your debt recovery work we aim to recover unpaid debts quickly and cost-effectively, but always with a view to protecting the business relationship between clients and their debtors.

Disputes with customers and warranty claims

We can advise on consumer or sale of goods legislation and how it affects manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers for all aspects of current consumer legislation, rights and remedies, including warranty and guarantee claims.

We can also review the contract terms and conditions you have in place to ascertain the rights of all parties involved and, where required, represent your business to resolve any disputes with customers.

Insurance matters

We can act for either Claimants or Defendants for insurance related disputes, including giving advice on the scope for negotiation.

We strongly recommend businesses take a proactive stance on insurance matters and review any potential liability; taking appropriate action to mitigate any claims. Alternatively, insurance cover should be considered to cover the liability – our services extend to reviewing your situation, explaining what is required and arranging cover, where requested.

Partnership disputes

We can assist with disputes in partnerships with or without a formal written partnership agreement. We can review the Partnership Deeds to examine the terms originally agreed and any subsequently amendments, before providing advice on the most practical way forward to deal with any dispute.

Where the partnership dispute cannot be resolved we can provide assistance to dissolve the partnership without involving Court action.

Landlord and tenant disputes

Our team can advise on all aspects of property litigation. This includes claims against tenants, claims on behalf of tenants including service of statutory notices, quitting of premises and statutory compensation claims.

We also handle mortgage related disputes, forfeiture of leases, boundary disputes (including dealing with rights of way and other easements) and arranging processes for the removal of trespassers from land.
