Our litigation solicitor’s expertise

Acting for both claimants and defendants, our litigation lawyers have extensive experience across a broad range of civil dispute matters.

Proud of the results we have achieved, we explore the circumstances of each dispute to devise the perfect strategy for each client, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to how we resolve each disagreement. As well as resolving disputes that have occurred, our considered and sensitive approach stops them from escalating.

Common types of litigation cases we deal with include:

Contract disputes

If you are accusing another party of breaching a contract, we can help. This could mean obtaining a court order to force the other side to carry out their contractual obligations or claiming damages to restore the position you would have been in if the contract had been honoured.

On the other hand, if someone has accused you of breaching a contract, we can find out whether a violation occurred, robustly defend your position, and help you to negotiate a swift settlement.

With an eye on your objectives, our litigation lawyers always deploy a pragmatic approach to save you time, money, and potential reputational damage. And regardless of the civil litigation dispute you are involved in, we will establish what you want to achieve and explain all the options available.

Property disputes

Our litigation lawyers assist with a broad range of property disputes, including residential property and landlord/tenant cases. Providing a bespoke service to each client, we look at the specific circumstances of every dispute to devise just the right strategy.

Of course, most of our clients want to resolve their property disputes as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. And, to help you get on with your life, when you appoint us as your litigation lawyers, we use all our expertise and experience to ensure a swift and satisfactory resolution wherever possible.

Our litigation lawyers always go the extra mile if you need a trusted partner to provide quality legal support for your property dispute. Moreover, we will work with you to keep communication open and discussions constructive.

Construction disputes

Construction and building disagreements are amongst the most common contract disputes seen by our lawyers. Any pre-created legal agreement should safeguard all parties to ensure that payments are made and that the work provided is of an adequate standard. But disagreements can quickly become complex if a contract is not drafted correctly and does not include the necessary terms.

Construction contracts should dictate how both parties must move forward to resolve any disputes. But here again, in the absence of correctly written terms, one of the first steps in resolving a conflict can be identifying the rights of both parties and the potential legal remedies.

Helping claimants and defendants to a satisfactory resolution, our litigation lawyers deal with complex construction disputes valued in excess of £50,000. We can even help in cases where the evidence is limited to “your word against mine”.

Debt recovery

Recovering money owed to you can be frustrating, emotional, and time-consuming. Our expert litigation lawyers can help you get your money back if your attempts at debt recovery have been unsuccessful.

In most cases, we advise starting with Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to help the disputing parties reach a legally binding decision without going to court. ADR can be effective when the debtor wants to honour the debt but is struggling to pay it back. However, where such attempts are not suitable or successful, or if the debtor has no intention of paying, we can mount a robust case in court.

As well as debt recovery, our litigation lawyers can help with high-value and/or complex asset recovery claims. For example, when one person has an asset that allegedly belongs to another. Such cases are common after divorce, separation, and death. Utilising our considerable resources, experience, and legal acumen, our successful litigation lawyers will pursue your interests to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

Shareholder disputes

Shareholder disputes can quickly become acrimonious and damaging. And if not handled correctly, such conflicts can result in expensive legal fees, high levels of stress, and even the end of a business.

Our litigation lawyers have vast experience in resolving shareholder conflict and can end most disputes quickly and with minimal impact on everyone involved. Where a resolution is impossible, and the relationship cannot be repaired, we can ensure a clean break to help everyone move forward in the best possible position.

In the vast majority of cases, we avoid costly and disruptive litigation. However, our litigation lawyers have everything it takes to protect our clients’ positions in court. If you’re stuck in a shareholder dispute and need expert legal advice, contact our litigation lawyers today.

Commercial disputes

As well as helping our clients through a wide range of civil litigation matters, we also help our clients with all forms of commercial litigation matters to avoid disputes whenever possible. And when a business conflict occurs, our litigation lawyers provide in-depth, tailored, and practical advice to resolve their issues quickly and effectively.

Focusing on our client’s strategic and commercial objectives, we help to de-escalate and resolve commercial disputes through negotiation and mediation. But, if we need to go to court, we have everything it takes to win.

With extensive knowledge and expertise in all areas of litigation, we are proud of the results we have achieved. So, if you are a business owner or manager in need of legal help to resolve a commercial dispute, you’ve come to the right place.

Civil dispute resolution options

When a dispute becomes hostile and drawn out, there can be significant emotional and financial consequences. Appointing expert civil litigation lawyers will help you achieve a suitable resolution whilst minimising any adverse effects.

A boutique London law firm, our litigation lawyers are experts in alternative dispute resolution (ADR), and we focus on constructive communication wherever possible. The most common methods of ADR we provide to our clients include:

Mediation, where both parties attempt to resolve the dispute with the help of an impartial mediator. While the agreement reached will not be compulsory, it can be made into a legally binding order if agreed.

Arbitration is more formal than mediation, and a qualified arbitrator will consider the dispute before ruling. Arbitration is more commonly used in more complex business disagreements.

ADR can be less costly than going to court and more flexible. Furthermore, through ADR, both parties can achieve a resolution much quicker. However, where alternative methods are unsuitable or where they have failed, our litigation lawyers will help you to present the most robust possible case in court.
