Our approach to Civil Litigation Disputes

By adopting a proactive approach, our Civil Litigation Solicitors always aim to achieve a quick, cost-effective and positive outcome.

With our knowledge and expertise in your corner, you’ll always feel assured. No matter what type of dispute you are embroiled in.

Wherever possible, we try to resolve disputes through methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) as this can bring matters to a close without the need for formal court proceedings. Not only can this save time and costs, avoiding court allows the dispute to remain private and ADR can often lead to a positive outcome.

If ADR fails to provide a satisfactory conclusion, we won’t hesitate to bring a Civil Litigation claim through the court system.

Free Legal Advice for Civil Litigation Claims

We don’t think costs should ever be a barrier to seeking expert legal advice. That’s why we offer a free 30-minute session where we can discuss your case, assess the legal merits of your claims and analyse how likely you are to be successful.

We cannot guarantee that we will be able to help. But our experienced Civil Litigation solicitors will listen carefully and advise on the best course of action to take.

If your case is a small claim that’s worth less than £10,000.00 and likely be a small claims matter then it may not make financial sense to hire a solicitor as the costs could outweigh the amount you’re owed. However, there are still a wide range of place where you can gain affordable access to legal assistance – such as the Citizen’s Advice Bureau and the Law Centres Network.

In some cases, there may be a compelling business reason why you would pursue a commercial Civil Litigation claim even if it is worth less than £10,000.00 such as the protection of your business reputation.
