Realistic Advice to Resolve Your Disputes

Our lawyers, headed by Partner, Geoff Lamb, have a wealth of experience and will guide you through the often complex legal issues arising out of your disputes. Dealing with a dispute can be time consuming and we appreciate that to a business time is money. We therefore, make an early assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the case and offer pragmatic advice to ensure we meet your objectives in pursuing the matter on your behalf including advice on resolving your dispute through negotiation/mediation.

The cost of pursuing/defending a claim can be an obstacle when facing the prospects of litigation. We discuss funding options available and where appropriate will enter into a conditional fee arrangement with you. We also offer an initial fixed fee interview for one hour to review your potential claim with you.
