A certain degree of conflict is to be expected in both our personal and professional lives, and often resolves naturally. However, in some instances, when conflict is not managed properly from an early stage, a dispute can turn into a substantial drain on a business or individual’s resources and time, becoming a source of deep unhappiness and stress.
Our specialist dispute resolution team has extensive and broad-ranging experience in this area, having acted for numerous clients, both claimants and defendants, in an array of cases, including:
- landlord and tenant
- partnership and director disputes
- trusts and probate
- professional negligence
- debt recovery
In every case we see, we use our negotiating expertise, commercial awareness and litigation experience to ensure we offer you a balanced and considered view of your case to help you find a solution. All avenues are considered, including: negotiation, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) – such as mediation, arbitration, expert determination or adjudication – and litigation, or a combination of these approaches.
Working hand in hand with you we will formulate a strategy to resolve the dispute to your satisfaction as quickly, cost-effectively and with as little stress as possible.
In addition, our head of department, Alistair Wells, is an accredited mediator and accepts instructions to act as mediator on a range of disputes. For more information please see Mediation.
