Civil litigation is conducted within a complex framework of rules setting down law and procedure. As one of our clients you can be assured that we have an impressive track record in dealing with a broad range of civil litigation cases from the small claims court to the High Court.
We understand that budget is important and will always advise you whether legal costs are likely to be proportionate at the outset of your case. Whether you are bringing a claim, or defending a claim, you can rely on our expertise in negotiation to seek settlement where possible.
We can provide immediate advice upon a full range of litigation matters.
In most instances we also offer fixed-fee preliminary consultations. A consultation will help you to understand the legal and practical issues relating to your case and allow you to make an informed decision about what action to take.
