Individual Disputes

Our areas of expertise in individual disputes include:

Professional negligence

Occasionally, the people you put your trust in to advise and assist you get it wrong. Be it solicitors, accountants, surveyors or architects, we have the ability to decipher what went wrong and seek for you the appropriate compensation to put matters right.

Contested probate

Unfortunately, a considerable numbers of families are thrown into turmoil upon the death of a loved one. We are adept and experienced in all areas of contested probate, including issues of incapacity, undue influence and claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. View more on our Contested Probate expertise.

Insurance claims

Being astute can involve obtaining insurance for when things go awry. Occasionally, your insurance company will try and wriggle out from their responsibilities. We have experience in keeping them to their obligations.

Consumer claims

Whether your new purchase is not of satisfactory quality, or not as described, we can assist in seeking the return of the goods (and your money back) or compensation in lieu.

Claims against the police

No-one likes to think that the police act contrary to the law, but it happens. We have considerable experience in this specialist area with claims of wrongful arrest, assault and malicious prosecution.

Debt recovery

We know how frustrating it can be when you’re left out of pocket by customers or clients who fail to pay - sometimes debtors only pay those who shout the loudest and longest. We have a wide range of options to help you recover these bad debts in a costs-proportionate manner, including reasonably priced fixed-fee letters before claim. For disputed or contested debts we can provide a fixed fee initial meeting to advise you on the strength of your claim and the options and tactics open to you.

Landlord and tenant

Landlord and tenant law can be confusing and daunting. We are experienced in assisting landlords with a wide range of issues, including serving the appropriate notices to end tenancies, court possession proceedings and bailiff eviction where tenants refuse to leave voluntarily, and unpaid rent/disrepair claims. We also act for tenants in enforcing and protecting their rights against problem landlords.

‘Mark Fitch was known to me professionally as a Mediator and it was in that capacity that I felt that he was the ideal person to deal with a very difficult personal matter that I became embroiled in. Mark is much more than a mediator though. He advised me to take a much more confrontational stance than I had intended. How right he was and I will always be grateful for the utterly professional and careful way he dealt with the matter, which resulted in an outcome much more favourable than I had hoped possible.’

‘We had tried to deal with an insurance claim against us without success and felt out of our depth. Mark was very understanding and supportive and his secretary was also very professional in a ‘human’ way. Thanks to Mark, we were able to prevent the claim against us going ahead.’

‘Handled most expertly by Mark and his team. Warm reception to myself and family and any problems that arose were ironed out quickly and with little fuss.’

‘Great to know and reassuring that professional help is at hand in such an awesome way. No messing and got the job done. Thank you very much.’
