Let us help look after your interests and, where appropriate, defend them. Our litigation team will work with you to in resolving disputes either by negotiation or where necessary at court on your behalf.


We deal with almost any kind of dispute you can face in your life, from contract disputes to employment issues, immigration assistance to debt recovery, from disagreements with neighbours to inheritance claims and much, much more.


We will represent you before Tribunals, the County Court, High Court and above. Where necessary we will instruct a barrister to work with us as part of a team assisting with advice or at court. If appropriate we will secure public funding or alternatively look at the availability of Before the Event Insurance or After the Event Insurance policies. If you need to pay privately, we have a number of payment options including our popular debt recovery fixed fees.



To avoid proceedings, we will consider with you alternative ways of resolving the dispute by way of mediation / arbitration to minimise costs to you.

Having obtained judgment, we can assist you with enforcement. These measures range from bailiffs to bankruptcy and we provide full advice on all the pros and cons.

We also assist businesses with disputes. If you are a business owner seeking to resolve a dispute, please visit our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution page.

For individuals, our team can assist in resolving disputes in the following areas:

Contract Disputes

Every day the average person will enter at least one contract. It is only when things go wrong, do we then consider and examine the transaction closely.

If you need assistance with a Contract Dispute, we can help.
