Choosing the right route

Alongside the traditional method of court proceedings, you may want to consider alternative dispute resolution (ADR). This includes mediation, arbitration and adjudication and could be a quicker and cheaper way to resolve the dispute. We will talk you through the options and advise you on which route is best suited to your objectives.

If court action is required, then your specialist litigation solicitor in our Dispute Resolution team will provide you with all the support and advice you need to get the best possible result.

With one of the strongest dispute resolution teams in the area we have many years’ experience of dealing with disputes about:

  • Contracts
  • Negligence (including professional negligence)
  • Partnerships
  • Directors and shareholders
  • Property

Pricing – Our Philosophy

We believe that it is important that our clients should have access to a dispute resolution fee structure that is open, transparent and sufficiently flexible to meet their needs.

We realise that your control of costs during a dispute is an important consideration so we have made flexibility a cornerstone of our fee offering.

We will always take the time to provide you with a fee proposition that is based on your particular circumstances and to discuss with you the most cost effective approach for your needs.


Our two fee offerings are :

  • Hourly rates – these rates are linked directly to the experience of each solicitor. You may prefer this option as you will only pay for any work that is carried out.
  • Fixed fees – this option provides you with certainty of costs from the outset and can cover either the whole dispute or predefined stages.

No matter which option you choose, we will provide you with as much information on the potential likely costs of using our services as we sensibly can. We keep you regularly updated on how our fees are building up
