Our dispute resolution services

Our dispute resolution solicitors support clients with a wide range of legal disputes in Chichester, Fareham and Havant, as well as throughout West Sussex, Hampshire and South East England.

Building Disputes

When you employ a builder or related tradesperson, you put your trust in them to do good quality, safe work that will enhance your property. Where you feel you have been let down by a construction professional, we can support you with taking legal action to ensure the work is made right and/or you can secure appropriate compensation.

Consumer Disputes

If a product you buy does not meet the description provided by the seller, whether because it is faulty or due to any other reason, you may have grounds for a claim. We can advise you of your rights and whether we believe you claim has a reasonable chance of success, then guide you through the entire process of making a claim.

Contested Probate Matters

Contested probate is any dispute relating to the administration of a deceased person’s estate, whether it involves a dispute over the value of assets, the interpretation of a Will, or dealing with difficult executors or feuding beneficiaries. Disputes of this nature can be time-consuming and complicated to resolve, with the potential to put a big strain on family relationships. We can help you achieve a fair outcome while keeping things amicable wherever possible, minimising any negative impact on you and your family.

Contractual Disputes

Contracts define all sorts of important transactions and service relationships in our lives, so if you believe a product or service hasn’t lived up to what was promised, we can help. Our dispute resolution team can help to establish whether a contract has been breached and then rectify the situation quickly and cost-effectively.

Employment Disputes

Whether you work for a small local business or a large commercial company, you are an Employee. As such, certain rights will be acquired and certain responsibilities will be provided. Due to the nature of an employer/employee relationship, there is always a possibility that a dispute may arise. We can advise you with even the most complicated Employment related issues whether this involves a new employment contract, redundancy, an amicable departure from the business or a dismissal.

Professional Negligence

When a professional you trust to advise you or manage your affairs lets you down, it can have a significant impact on you, both financially and in other ways. If you have been negatively affected by professional negligence, we can help you pursue a claim and secure compensation wherever possible.

Property Disputes

Whether you own, lease or rent a property, there are various issues that can arise, costing you time, money and effort to resolve. We can help you deal with even the most complicated and contentious property disputes, including boundary disputes, landlord & tenant disputes and dilapidation issues, helping to protect your property rights and financial investment.

Small Claims Track

We have experience from both sides of small claims, including launching claims and defending clients against claims. This means we have the expertise you need to make it as swift and easy as possible to resolve a small claim in a way that’s fair for you.

Our dispute resolution service

While we have extensive experience in resolving disputes through court action, in general we find it is in our clients’ best interests to seek a solution outside of a court hearing.

We offer a number of different methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), meaning we can normally find a fast solution that costs you less and keeps conflict to a minimum.

The advantages of ADR include:

  • You do not have to wait for a court date
  • The legal fees involved are usually lower
  • The process is less adversarial
  • The dispute can be resolved privately
  • It can allow you to maintain or repair your relationship with the other party or parties involved in the dispute

Our Alternative Dispute Resolution options include:

Correspondence – We are able to resolve disputes simply be setting out your legal position in a formal solicitor’s letter. This is often all it takes to convince the other party to offer a settlement or drop their complaint.

Negotiation – We are highly experienced negotiators and will typically take a friendly but firm approach, which can allow the issues involved in your dispute to be resolved while maintaining a positive relationship with the other parties involved.

Mediation – We can provide a neutral third-party mediator to meet with both parties and guide you in talking the issues involved in your dispute. This can allow you to retain control over the process and agree a solution while keeping conflict to a minimum.

Without prejudice meetings – This allows both parties to meet and discuss the issues with the reassurance of having a legally binding agreement in place that means nothing said in the meeting can later be used in court proceedings.
