Dispute Resolution

...with you every step of the way!

Few organisations can avoid disputes in today's business climate. We can advise you how best to present your arguments or defend your position, be it in negotiations, arbitration, litigation, mediation or tribunal proceedings.

The right advice, at the right time, can save you money.

We operate cost effective procedures to resolve issues that include going to the Court but also consider other methods of resolving disputes including mediation, arbitration and negotiation.

If you have problems in any of the following areas we will advise and help you.

  • Contractual disputes
  • Debt collection
  • Employment
  • Property disputes

Getting the best advice quickly often saves considerable costs and time.


We act for both employers and employees in connection with Employment Tribunal claims including claims of unfair dismissal, redundancy, discrimination and bullying in the workplace. We have also successfully negotiated settlement of claims on behalf of our clients where appropriate.

Our full range of services for employers is available here.

Our services for individuals are available here.

Alternative dispute resolution

For some time we have recognised the importance of 'horses for courses'. Whilst litigation may sometimes be the only way to resolve a dispute, there are other ways. Recent procedural changes in the courts have made it more important that alternatives are considered which will resolve a dispute effectively and cheaply.

The members of our team are aware of the alternatives and will recommend them when appropriate. We have partners trained as mediators in both family and commercial disputes.
