Delivering positive outcomes
Dispute Resolution and Litigation
Disputes and conflicts can arise in every walk of life and can be stressful, time-consuming and costly for those involved. Whether to do with property, contract, landlord and tenant, professional negligence, commercial agreements or employment, we can help you steer through the resolution process and assist in reaching an early solution, thereby saving time, effort and money.
LGP Solicitors advises on a number of Dispute Resolution techniques that avoid the inflexibility and costs of litigation. We focus on enabling the parties to achieve a better or similar result without the need for lengthy and expensive Court or Tribunal proceedings.
All parties to the dispute are advised to consider all aspects of Alternative Dispute Resolution including mediation, adjudication and conciliation. This can be either a formal mediation process or a more informal approach on your behalf to try and reach common ground with an opposing party. We have a network of other professionals who can also assist.
If a settlement is unsuccessful and Court proceedings inevitable, we can advise and assist you through the litigation process, either by issuing or defending a claim in the Civil Courts. We will steer you through the Court process and help you to obtain a satisfactory outcome. We advise on the practicalities of settlement and will endeavour to secure the most beneficial resolution for you while taking into account the legal issues and personal circumstances that have led to the dispute.
The enforcement of debts and Judgments can be time-consuming and frustrating. By working with you, our team can advise you on the most effective and sensible approach for dealing with the enforcement and recovery of debts.
We can advise you on your employment rights and obligations, both from an employer’s or an employee’s perspective.
We have experience in disputes concerning Wills and Grants of Probate including both bringing and defending proceedings under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. Issues can arise upon the death of a close one that can create ill-feeling and disputes between family members arising from arguments of testamentary capacity and undue influence. We can help resolve such issues by way of informal mediation or more formal litigation.
Claims between landlords and tenants can prove costly and time-consuming, but we can help to minimise the distress of such matters by providing clear and sound advice to resolve all issues to your satisfaction. We specialise in commercial lease renewal proceedings under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 as well as all manner of neighbour disputes that can arise relating to boundaries, trees, access and rights of way. For an informal discussion concerning any ongoing dispute that may require our assistance, please contact us for a no-obligation conversation to decide on the best way forward.
