Meet David Mallinson, Head of Dispute Resolution:
Expert Litigation Lawyers
The team provides wide-ranging advice and a dispute resolution service that deals with all types of commercial and contractual situations. At Girlings, our main aim is to guide clients towards a cost effective and speedy resolution and to avoid, wherever possible, an extended time consuming and costly litigation process. An experienced litigator in our team will be able to advise you on all types of disputes, irrespective of how simple or complex they are. We offer a full litigation service and are experienced in acting for a client base that includes large corporations, SMEs, partnerships as well as individuals.
Where litigation appears to be the only course open to a client, we do regularly represent our commercial clients (both large and small) in substantial matters in both the High Court and the local County Courts.
Our services extend to other related commercial areas which include:
- Property litigation
- Landlord and tenant
- Partnership disputes
- Professional negligence claims
- Shareholder actions/disputes
- Insolvency and winding up procedures.
If you need help with resolving conflict in the workplace, please contact one of our expert Employment Law Solicitors who will be happy to help.

Alternative Dispute Resolution
As well as providing advice about conventional forms of litigation, we can also advise you on alternative dispute resolution methods, including arbitration and dispute mediation (both formal and informal), which an increasing number of our commercial clients are opting for nowadays.
Debt Recovery Services
In addition we provide a dedicated and cost effective debt recovery service, based at our Ashford office, which deals with all steps from an initial 'letter before action' through to the issue of formal proceedings and the application for and enforcement of judgments.
Often an initial letter is sufficient to generate a positive response from the debtor. If further action is required, this is always dealt with in close consultation with the client to ensure costs are minimised throughout the process and unrecoverable debts are, hopefully, identified at the earliest possible opportunity. For further details of this service, please see the Debt Recovery Services section of this website.
