Compare Dispute Solicitors

Legal disputes come in many different forms, such as those with neighbours; with employers; over wills, debts or products and services; or between landlords and tenants. With the right legal advice and mediation, private disputes (between two private individuals, or between an individual and a company) can often be resolved to the satisfaction of everyone involved.

Is it necessary to go to court to resolve a dispute?

Sometimes a dispute may be resolved without going through the Courts. Mediation or arbitration may help to settle a conflict; or alternatively a matter may be settled out of Court through negotiation.

How can a solicitor help?

A solicitor’s expertise in a specific area of litigation may hasten a resolution in a cost-effective and practical manner; saving time, energy and heartache for the Litigant, whether corporate or individual.

Employing a solicitor may also help to avoid a dispute or, by identifying key issues at an early stage, help to bring the parties to an early mutual agreement.
