Dispute resolution

Our dispute resolution team has wide ranging experience of civil law disputes involving individuals and businesses. We act for clients in the south west and nationally always offering practical, cost effective advice to find the best solution open to you.

How we can help

If you are involved in a 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 act for 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.

What makes us different?

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.
