Any dispute or disagreement can cause stress, upset and difficulties – at home or at work. Whether it’s a conflict at work, problems with landlords or tenants, an unpaid bill or poor workmanship (the list of legal disputes we deal with is almost endless) we’re here to help you resolve the issue.
Our approach to legal disputes
Before we take any action – before even recommending a suitable course of action – we discuss your legal dispute with you and assess it on an individual basis. We carefully consider your specific requirements and the circumstances surrounding it.
We’ll give you all the information you need: what your options are and how much they are likely to cost.
You can then decide what action, if any, you want to take and whether you want us to put our experience and expertise to work for you to get the outcome you want.

Helping you find a solution
Not every client wants to go to Court. You might just want help sometimes it’s just help with making a formal complaint, or receiving getting an apology or refund.
Negotiation and discussion does not resolve every dispute though. Sometimes, the only place to settle a dispute and deal with it is, is in Court, before a Judge. One of our Disputes & Litigation team, or a specialist barrister appointed by us, will talk you through the process and be by your side in the courtroom.
Paul Herbert is our Disputes and Litigation specialist and will negotiate on your behalf or represent you in proceedings whether in court or tribunal.

When should you use a Probate Solicitor?
Deciding whether you need a probate solicitor largely depends on your individual circumstances. For example, if the deceased person had a small amount of money and owned little else, the process is much simpler, and you may be able to administer the estate yourself. If, however, the deceased person owned a property in their sole […]
