Generally civil litigation fall into two categories. One is based on contract, i.e. an agreement between two or more parties, and the other is based on a civil wrong caused by one party to another either deliberately or negligently. The range of disputes based on contract can vary from the relatively minor case of the purchase of defective items such as an electric kettle to a multimillion pound claim arising as a result of penalty clauses in a building contract. Civil wrongs include cases of personal injury and damages to property and reputation.
If you are involved in a dispute with another individual or company we can advise you on your chances of success and the possible value of your claim. We can negotiate on your behalf and if necessary commence or defend proceedings which, according to the subject matter and the amount of the claim, will be dealt with in either the County Court or the High Court.
Law suits, or the circumstances with could give rise to one, are major challenges whether they be directed at individuals or businesses. They can be life changing events and can have very serious consequences. Certainly they are very stressful.
