How our Dispute Resolution solicitors can help

We specialise in the following departments:

Our Litigation Services

Disputes appear in many areas of life. They can relate to your family, home, workplace, or professional services. Our litigation solicitors can help with both civil and commercial disputes.

Disputing a Will

Going through the probate process after a family member or friend has died is never easy. The situation can be made much worse if you feel you weren’t left what you felt you deserved in the Will, or that the person who died made the Will under undue influence.

Professional Negligence Claims

Sometimes professionals that you rely on make mistakes that have a negative impact on you and your affairs. This can be classed as professional negligence.

If you have been let down by a professional such as an architect, accountant, lawyer or other advisor, we may be able to help you claim compensation for your loss.

Making a claim for Mis-selling

Many people trust a financial advisor to give professional advice about their savings. Whether you are planning for retirement, investing for your business or just need somewhere safe for your money, it is important that the professional you put your trust in treats your money with care and attention. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.

Making a TOLATA Claim

Seeking a Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act claim (TOLATA) can feel daunting. Understanding the process and documents needed for these claims is crucial for ensuring fair outcomes and protecting your stake in jointly-held assets.
