Litigation solicitors London: Types of disputes

·        Commercial litigation – Our commercial litigation team can assist with legal disputes that arise throughout the course of business and negotiate any settlements. Our commercial litigators have vast experience resolving business disputes and commercial contract disputes.

·        Breach of contract claims – When a party fails to uphold their side of an agreement, it can be expensive and disruptive for others involved. Claiming damages for breach of contract can help the affected party recover their losses.

·        Professional negligence claims – If a professional’s work or advice does not reach the expected standard, they may have breached their duty of care to their client. If their client suffers as a result of this, they could make a claim for professional negligence. We regularly assist in the litigation of professional negligence claims against solicitors, for example.

·        Fraud claims – Our litigation team can assist clients in the recovery of assets and losses following cases of fraud.

The process of making a claim

When a client initially contacts one of our dispute resolution lawyers for advice, it is the solicitor’s role to analyse their legal claim or defence and discuss the next steps. They will then ask the client questions about their situation and may require further information or documentation to gain a better understanding of how they should proceed with their case.

The litigation solicitor will advise the claimant or defendant on whether they believe they have a strong case or not.

Each case is unique, and the steps in the case will be dependent on the type and complexity of the case. However, in most cases, the solicitor will usually suggest an attempt to settle the case using initial negotiations before proceeding to more formal alternative dispute resolution or court proceedings.
