Dispute resolution for individuals

When life takes you into new territory, it’s best to talk to someone who's been there before.

When disputes arise, for whatever reason, you will be looking for a cost-effective, speedy resolution – one that aligns with or reflects your priorities. 

Often this will be possible without litigation, by pursuing alternative strategies such as arbitration or mediation. These routes are usually faster and less disruptive than litigation, which can be time-consuming, costly and unpredictable, and we will always recommend considering such approaches.  However, there are times when litigation is the best or only option. In such cases, we have the skills and experience to pursue your interests vigorously and forcefully. 

Our team comprises qualified arbitrators and mediators – all experienced and robust negotiators – and we will work with you to design the most appropriate strategy for your circumstances.

We can also draw on the experience and knowledge of specialist teams, including colleagues from our employment, property, clinical negligence and personal injury teams, to ensure that whatever course you take, we have the best possible chance of success.

We recognise that value for money is also a concern for you, so we provide estimates and updates to help you to project manage litigation costs effectively. We offer a range of innovative pricing solutions to ensure that our services are tailored to your budget as well as your need. In some cases, we will offer a “no win no fee” arrangement, or fixed prices for set pieces of work. It is rarely cost-effective to instruct a solicitor to act for you in a small claim (valued at £10,000 or less) but you may want to buy legal advice on a pay-as-you-go basis and we will be happy to provide an estimate on this basis.

I thought my world was ending when I first contacted them. Very quickly they took a lot of that pressure from me and I felt like we were a team. I am sure they had other clients, but they made me feel like I was their only one
