From landlord disputes to licensing issues
It’s easy for minor problems to escalate into major disputes, seemingly in the blink of an eye. Opposite sides of the fence become entrenched in their views, dialogue turns to silence, action becomes impasse.
We’ve built more than 150 years’ experience in helping people overcome what might seem insurmountable. We do this through our expertise in litigation and skills in mediation.
The right approach is vital. Involving a lawyer early can often be more effective than waiting until things get worse. Choosing an advisor who really knows the law is only half the battle. Strategy and tactics need to be spot on. And you need to feel confident you’ve the right team of counsel and experts around you, acting in your best interests.
Our dispute resolution service covers the full range of issues in both consumer and commercial matters.
