Court Claims

Legal disputes can be stressful, costly and time consuming. We can advise you and if needed represent you in civil law disputes in the County or High Court. This can cover a very wide range of types of claim. If we need to obtain specialist advice from Counsel, we will do so.

At the outset we will always advise you on whether the claim has reasonable prospects of success or if it is financially viable to pursue it.

The County Court operates a “small claims court” for money claims up to £10,000, in which it is usually not possible to recover your legal costs from the other side. This means that your legal costs will come from whatever compensation you recover.

We have particular expertise in acting for professional landlords in possession/ rent arrears proceedings, recovering debts and also for beneficiaries and personal representatives in situations where the dispositions made in a will are in dispute. We also can assist in business partnership and company disputes.

We can offer an initial fixed fee case assessment to guide you at the outset.

Please note that we do not undertake personal injury clinical negligence, or criminal courts work, but can recommend other lawyers if needed.
