Our expertise and the way we help you

Litigation refers to proceedings instigated between two opposing parties in order to enforce or defend a legal right. This process is usually settled by agreement between two parties, but may also be heard and decided by a jury or judge in court. Therefore, litigation should always be treated as a last resort and even then, it is not always the best course of action to take.

It may sound strange to hear a law firm telling you this, but that is because we know there is more than one way to settle a dispute and court hearings can be costly.

If you are unlikely to get any financial redress at the end of the process, taking the matter to court could leave you or your business out of pocket. The best solutions are often found if action is taken at an early stage to find an amicable solution that both sides are happy with.

Whether you are hoping to recover losses or otherwise seek redress as an individual, or on behalf of a business, your legal team should guide you to consider all options, based on a clear understanding of timescales and costs. We can help you to get the best possible outcome, in or out of court.

Enlisting the help of resolution solicitors to assist with disputes is vital as all parties will receive expert advice on both how the dispute should progress and how to resolve the dispute in the most appropriate way.
