Disputes are not pleasant. When two parties have a disagreement, it can often result in damaging behavior and allegations. No one enjoys falling out but sadly, it happens. At Norton Peskett, we work with you to find the best outcome – a resolution that avoids undue unpleasantness, unnecessary costs and prolonged anxiety and worry.
Disputes can arise for any number of reasons. You may have a boundary dispute with your new neighbour; a disagreement with family members over the terms of a will or perhaps it is the quality of workmanship carried out on your property by a builder. Whatever the reason, you want to trust your solicitor to achieve the best possible result for you. At Norton Peskett you will have access to some of the best lawyers in the UK.
Disputes are often seen as expensive and lengthy. At the outset, we advise you on what the costs may be of pursuing your matter. We promise to keep you updated on costs throughout so that there are no nasty surprises when your dispute is resolved. Our lawyers will negotiate on your behalf and try and resolve your disagreement as promptly as we can.
We may also be able to mediate with the other side. Mediation is a formal process which can often reach a speedier conclusion and may avoid taking matters to court. Your lawyer will discuss the best approach with you and you can then decide which approach is best for you.
We offer free 15 minute appointments but this is simply to let you know if we can help you and advise on costs. No substantive advice is given. We also offer a 30 minute fixed fee appointment which will include advice where it can be given for £75.00 plus VAT.
