Litigation

We appreciate that litigation is an expensive and time consuming process which often leaves all parties, including the winner, feeling dissatisfied.

Our approach, therefore, is to explore with clients from the outset what their objectives are in any dispute and to seek to identify the speediest and cost effective route to that end.

If litigation proves inevitable, we seek to establish with our clients a strategy to achieve agreed goals, which we keep under review at each stage of the litigation process, balancing costs with achievable results.

In England only a small percentage of disputed cases result in a full trial at Court and whilst we are well equipped to deal with the cases which go that far, and have an extremely high success rate, we pride ourselves in our ability to achieve the best possible settlements for our clients.

We have experience in handling a wide range of matters from major disputes to simple debt collection. We have particular expertise in the following areas

  • Commercial Disputes
  • Contractual disputes
  • Consumer
  • Debt Claims
  • Libel (Defamation and Slander)
  • Housing
  • Landlord and Tenant
  • Professional Negligence
  • Probate Disputes
  • Welfare Benefits
  • White-collar crime
  • Fraud, Income tax, PAYE and VAT investigations
  • Representations in Magistrates/Crown Court

We are willing to consider Conditional Fee Agreements (“No Win – No Fee”) for suitable cases. Our experience encompasses all levels in the Court system, from County Court up to and including the House of Lords and the Privy Council. We have been involved in numerous reported cases and regularly handle matters in the specialist divisions of the Commercial Court and the Technology and Construction Court.
