If you are involved in a civil law dispute where the value exceeds £10,000 (the current small claims court limit) then it is likely that our civil dispute resolution team will be able to help.
We can advise you on the appropriate way forward and devise a strategy to best achieve your goals, whether this is through a negotiation, mediation or contested court proceedings.
Much of our work is privately funded, but we do represent some claimants on a No Win – No Fee basis where the circumstances allow.
We operate a £200 (plus VAT) fixed fee civil dispute resolution service and are sometimes able to work on a ‘deferred fees’ basis.
We can also offer limited or ad-hoc assistance where it may not be economic for us to act for you throughout an entire dispute.
We pride ourselves on offering practical, cost-effective advice. We will create a case plan at the outset that is consistent with your budget and identify the strategy that’s most likely to achieve your desired objectives as quickly and economically as possible.
We will advise you on the benefits of negotiation, mediation and others forms of alternative dispute resolution. By adopting a proactive approach to settlement a dispute can often be resolved at an early stage, without the expense and worry of court proceedings.
Where a negotiated settlement is not possible we will guide you through the court processes to bring your case to a resolution.
Throughout any dispute the emphasis is on achieving an outcome that is proportionate to the legal costs and the litigation risks involved.
Lead lawyers Andrew Wood and Emma Slade both have considerable experience and expertise in civil litigation, both in court and at mediation.
We are always happy to provide a free informal assessment of any proposed case and to talk through the issues with you before you make a commitment.
