Civil Litigation

We have a wide range of experience in Civil Litigation, which includes the following areas:

Contractual and other disputes, including professional negligence against Solicitors and other professionals.
Contested probate claims. These generally arise where a spouse or family member wishes to make a claim for provision or where a client seeks to challenge the validity of a Will.
Landlord and tenant disputes. We act for a large number of both landlords and tenants.
Employment disputes both in the civil courts and the employment tribunal. we also advise on Settlement Agreements, for both employers and employees,
Personal insolvency, including bankruptcy, applications to set aside statutory demands and bankruptcy orders and preference claims.
Education claims. These generally arise where a parent wishes to appeal against the refusal of a school to admit their child.
Property Claims; These can arise where unmarried couples or others disagree as to their respective interests in property, and the matter falls to be resolved under the Trusts of Land Act 1996.

Although we have expertise in pursing all these matters to trial with a high rate of success, we are also very aware that most of our clients do not wish to become involved in protracted litigation, and at all times we will consider the possibility of achieving an early settlement. As a firm we recognise the advantage of concluding matters through mediation, and this is reflected by the fact that we have a qualified mediator on our staff.
