Drawing a line under disputes.

Litigation

In the Legal 500 2017, we have been described as ‘Integrated and friendly, but still able to call on sufficient resources for heavy litigation‘ as well as providing ‘great technical expertise and a good level of service across a broad spectrum of commercial and other litigation, ranging from insolvencies and professional regulation to catastrophic injury cases, crime and family law.’

Finding yourself in dispute with another party is never an enjoyable experience.  Our job is to take the weight off your shoulders and make a difficult process as easy as we can while we guide you to the best possible outcome.

We are regularly instructed by individuals, families, businesses and law firms, both locally and internationally and the range of cases we have resolved is totally diverse, ranging from simple contractual matters arising in Jersey to large scale complex international cases.

Whoever the client is and whatever the size and nature of the dispute, we know the reason our clients come to us is the unique combination of our reputation and approach.

We have a reputation for successfully resolving disputes and an approach that relies upon reason and realism rather than aggression.  In fact, our first port of call is always to look at alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation, negotiation or arbitration to spare you from an unnecessarily protracted and expensive action.

However, if proceedings cannot be avoided, our team possess all of the advocacy experience and technical skills required to make sure you achieve your desired results in Court.

In terms of process the first step is always the same.   We will take all of the time required to understand your situation and the outcome you want to reach.  Only then will we start to tailor a strategy, which we’ll continue to adapt as we proceed so you stay one step ahead of the other side and achieve the end result you want.

As things unfold we will maintain total clarity, explaining what we are doing and why at every stage, providing continual updates so you know exactly where your dispute is at any given point.

The types of disputes we can help you resolve include:

  • Contractual disputes
  • Trust disputes
  • Professional negligence
  • Banking litigation
  • Asset recovery
  • Fraud
  • Conflicts of law
  • Contentious probate
  • Regulatory and shareholder disputes

If you are facing a dispute and would like to discuss how to make sure you achieve the outcome you want, please email either Jeremy Heywood or Mark Renouf or call us on +44 (0) 1534 760 860.
