Litigation and Disputes

Litigation and Disputes

Litigation covers a variety of subjects. We are able to advise and pursue some of them. There are many ways to resolve disputes and we will discuss the options available to you, the processes, advantages and disadvantages.

The Litigation and Dispute Team has a variety of experience in numerous legal areas. We offer a service of help and advice in respect of:

  • Business & company matters
  • Partnership & company law matters
  • Distribution of deceased estates
  • Property disputes
  • Landlord & Tenant matters
  • Contract Law

We will endeavour to resolve all matters without the need to go to court. This can include negotiation and mediation, where appropriate. If, however, it is necessary, we are able to provide a service in the High Court and County Courts.

Wills, Trusts and Probate

Wills, Trusts and Probate

Your Will lets you decide what happens to your money, property and possessions after your death. If you make a Will you can also ensure you don’t pay more Inheritance Tax than you need to.

Our Wills, Trusts and Probate Department offer a sensitive and cost-effective service and can meet you at your home if you require.

It is important to us that we help you with planning ahead – whether by Wills, Trusts or a Lasting Power of Attorney, and that we also assist our clients to deal with affairs in the event of a death. We have an experienced and highly qualified team, who can help you to ensure your decisions are met about what happens to your assets once you have died.

By making a Will you can decide who looks after your estate and what happens to your belongings. If you have children you can indicate who will look after them and how they will be financially provided for in the future. We also have a wealth of experience in helping people through what can be a difficult time, dealing with estate and trust property and dealing with complex estates. Whether there is a Will or not we will help you to sort out the financial affairs and will help you through the process of dividing the estate between the people who are entitled to it.

We are happy to assist with grants of representation and we can act as Executor to the Estate, if you wish.
