Dispute Resolution 


Resolving Conflict

 
Try as we might to avoid them, disputes can and do arise. If they do, we can help.
 
Our team of dispute resolution specialists will do all they can to help prevent disputes arising, or see if there is any way in which the problem can be resolved at an early stage.
 
Jeremy has long experience in alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation, and will do his utmost to assist in solving difficult issues between people even when it seems impossible to bridge the gap.
 
At all times your best interests are first and foremost. But if your case can only be resolved in court  Jeremy  as a solicitor-advocate can represent you on the day or we can brief a barrister for you, or even advise you how to conduct a small claims hearing yourself if you prefer.
 
The sorts of disputes we commonly manage include:
 

Landlord & Tenant Disputes 


Landlord and tenant relationships revolve around someone's home, and it’s vital that these relationships are kept fair and professional.  We help people deal with issues in areas such as notice periods, unacceptable behaviour and health and safety in the home.
 

Inheritance Claims


Jeremy has substantial experience of dealing with contested wills and estates, acting both on behalf of claimants and defendants.
 

Negligence
 

Our experience covers contractual, professional and educational negligence, as well as landlord and tenant issues.
 

Animals


We often act in cases involving the sale or purchase of animals, or injuries they cause, especially horses. Jeremy is an equine specialist and member of the Equine and Animal Lawyers Association.
