Civil Litigation Solicitors & Civil Dispute Resolution

Sometimes, disputes arise that cannot be resolved without external assistance. Unless you receive the right advice about pursuing or defending your claim, and winning costs back from your opponent, the legal process can seem daunting and can end up being incredibly costly.

Our team of dispute management solicitors will work closely with you from the outset to identify your needs, define legally enforceable and affordable outcomes, and help you choose the right solution. We have experience dealing with:

Banking and Finance Litigation

Our specialist banking and finance litigators advise lenders, financial institutions, corporate and domestic borrowers and guarantors.

We work closely with our non-contentious banking and finance team, allowing us to provide the highest and most comprehensive level of service to our clients.

Our disputes team specialises and deals with a wide range of financial disputes, including:

Types of Dispute Resolution

Our dedicated dispute management department is experienced in all courts, and in all forms of dispute resolution, including litigation, mediation, arbitration, adjudication and expert determination. To find out more, take a look at our alternative dispute resolution page.

We will take time to explore all of the options for resolving your dispute, including out of court settlements. What’s more, we will fight hard to secure the best possible outcome for employees. In addition, we will always be open about the associated costs, so you can make informed choices throughout the process.

Above all, our team of lawyers knows that while winning does come at a price, we will aim to give the highest quality advice throughout the legal process. We will also aim to dedicate most of our time to staying one step ahead of your adversaries, rather than wasting countless and unnecessary hours in court and the cost that entails.
