Dispute Resolution

We are pleased to offer a free half-hour initial appointment for all civil dispute and employment matters.  In the appointment you can expect to receive basic information to help you decide whether to take matters further.  You will not receive legal advice tailored to your particular problem.

Should you decide to instruct us to deal with your matter, we can then advise on costs, timescale and your prospects of success.

Call us on 01326 316655 or email us for an appointment with Ross Pascoe or Jo Fisher.

We seek to resolve disputes in a cost-effective way using mediation, adjudication and other forms of dispute resolution.  We will steer you through the legal process efficiently and effectively.

We advise and act for clients on all types of civil disputes including claims relating to commercial, construction, regulatory investigation, wills and estates, contract, property, landlord and tenant, employment, possession proceedings, professional negligence, debt recovery and insolvency.

Raised awareness of rights and entitlements has prompted a dramatic increase in the number of contentious probate cases going to court in recent years. Wills can be validly contested, provided that there are certain prescribed circumstances.

Weighing the Costs

Before we begin work on your behalf and as the case progresses, we will give clear and frank advice about  the merits of your claim and the chances of success. We will help you weigh this against the likely level of legal charges and expenses and any other concerns that you may have regarding your case. We strive on finding the best way to resolve the matter as efficiently and inexpensively as possible.

Our Approach

Many disputes and claims can be resolved effectively out of Court and we will consider with you the options available including mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution, in addition Legal Expenses Insurance or conditional fee agreement, ‘no win, no fee’, may sometimes be available.
