We take a realistic and practical approach to the resolution of disputes. When a dispute or disagreement arises, we explore all options for concluding the case on the best terms achievable for our client. There will often be a range of outcomes available depending on the facts, the evidence, the relative strengths of the parties and the time which the client wishes to pass before the conclusion is reached.
Suitable approaches to finding a suitable outcome may include negotiation and mediation in order to avoid the need for expensive and potentially stressful court proceedings.
If court action does become necessary, however, we provide our clients with representation, which is vigorous, robust and of the highest legal and ethical standard.
Litigation can be expensive, sometimes very expensive. We are able to advise on what methods of funding are best to use in each individual case. If the case is suitable, we are willing to accept instructions on the basis of fee arrangements, which depend on the outcome of the case, including conditional fee agreements, also called no win no fee agreements. With conditional fee agreements, we are paid hourly rate fees, but only if we win the case. We also act for clients under legal expenses insurance, working closely with their insurers.
We have a strong record of success in the dispute resolution we undertake, and our clients can be assured of having a strong and skilful team in their corner.
