Disputes can be very stressful – and there’s often a lot at stake.
If the last thing you want is for your dispute to escalate into a lengthy court case, you need to receive prompt and effective advice from solicitors who are experts in dispute resolution.
Our dispute resolution expertise spans mediation and arbitration – through to litigation.
We deal with a wide range of disputes and are experienced in acting for either claimants or defendants in all sectors, ranging from corporations and general business groups to public bodies and charities. We equally act for individuals in professional and public positions.
Our commercial litigation and dispute resolution department comprises a team of lawyers who are committed to assisting our clients to resolve their disputes and achieving the best possible outcomes.
Whilst the resolution of disputes will frequently involve litigation, we always advise our clients on the various ways a matter can be brought to a speedy and satisfactory conclusion, including mediation and arbitration.
Court proceedings may not be the answer and we would not advise a client to litigate if their dispute resolution objectives can be achieved in a more efficient or cost-effective way such as through mediation, arbitration or negotiated settlement.
Our dispute resolution team is based in Leeds, Pontefract and Harrogate, and is experienced at providing help and advice on a wide range of issues, including:
“Straightforward and practical advice with very transparent pricing – a refreshing change from a solicitors! Simon Bass was both supportive legally and personally after a recent bereavement, as well as being a lovely chap with it.”
