Civil Litigation Dispute Resolution

WELFARE BENEFITS AND DEBT SOLICITOR
Civil Litigation and Dispute Resolution

 

 

 

 

 

Litigation is a legal dispute between two or more parties. I have experience of advising in a wide range of civil & commercial disputes, including proceedings before Courts and Tribunals, as well as settlement of disputes by way of negotiation or mediation.

Being involved in a legal dispute whether you are bringing a claim or defending one can be very stressful and the procedure and rules can be very burdensome and lengthy.

 Litigation can also be costly and confusing if you don't have the right legal team in place at an early stage. Most clients find that getting legal advice early on in the case can save them time, money and stress in the long run.

 

Initial consultations are free of charge and available by contacting me for a case appraisal. I have experience of representing clients in court proceedings, locally and nationally and can provide representation for you in court actions. I am highly experienced in litigation matters and can assist you in exploring all the options available to you such as those listed below.

 

Alternative Dispute Resolution -encourages both parties to work together towards resolution of claims- especially in cases where the cost of a claim might be outweighed by the cost of litigation.

 

Dispute Resolution - generally involves one of five types of alternative dispute resolution

 

Arbitration – a voluntary measure, which can be stipulated in a contract in case of dispute between the parties. Arbitrators can impose a resolution on the parties.

 

Conciliation – the conciliator is not an adjudicator and does not make an award, but acts to help the parties explore and settle their differences and consider making concessions or compromises, if necessary. Conciliation can help remove the “heat” from a dispute to negotiate a settlement and avoid costly litigation.

 

Mediation – the mediator helps the parties work towards resolution – and can suggest a resolution to the parties, which they do not have to accept.

 

Negotiation – participation in negotiation is voluntary between the parties, either directly or through their legal representatives – but without a third-party intermediary to impose a resolution.

 

Ombudsman – an independent adjudicator examines the claim or dispute, makes a ruling and awards any compensation due.
