Our areas of expertise in individual disputes include:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.< Back to Disputes
