Meet David Mallinson, Head of Dispute Resolution:
Expert Dispute Resolution Solicitors
Our Dispute Resolution team is able to offer friendly advice extending from initial informal advice through to full representation in court if required. Speak to a litigation lawyer in our team who will be able to assist and guide you towards a cost effective and speedy resolution of any dispute or issues which you may be experiencing, whether you wish to start proceedings or are subject yourself to a claim made by another.
Our litigation Solicitors have a wealth of experience in resolving conflicts and can provide litigation advice and assistance which includes the following areas:
- Partnership disputes
- Boundary disputes: boundary fence law, boundary wall disputes and other related problems
- Building disputes
- Debt claims
- Landlord and tenant dispute resolution
- Consumer protection/credit/sale of goods
- Claims against professional advisers
- Contentious Probate: Will and probate claims.
If you find yourself involved in any type of dispute or potential claim, speak to a member of our team at Girlings to see if we can help. We are also able to refer you to other specialists who may be able to help such as an accountant, an insolvency practitioner or a surveyor, with whom we have close professional contacts.
We are familiar with the expense and the pressures which can be created by any form of dispute, and we will always do our best to minimise the impact of these issues.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Court proceedings can be expensive, so we offer clients advice on a variety of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) options. These include arbitration advice (appoint someone to resolve the issue), mediation (both formal and informal, appointing someone to help negotiate a decision) and other forms of alternative dispute resolution - as well as the more conventional forms of court proceedings.
Legal Costs – We Work With You
We are familiar with the expense and the pressures which can be created by any form of dispute, and we will always do our best to minimise the impact of these issues. Legal costs can become an additional burden, so we are flexible about funding arrangements. We recommend, for example, that clients initially check their own household insurance policies, as increasingly these do provide cover for certain types of dispute.
