Finding resolutions and mitigating conflicts

Throughout life and in business, disputes will sometimes occur, which can cause stress and prove to be an inconvenient distraction. Acting quickly, understanding what’s at stake and knowing how to resolve a dispute is critical to the success of the resolution.

Our dispute solicitors are passionate about fully understanding the nature of your dispute and achieving a positive and speedy outcome. Whether we are working with private individuals, local, national or corporate clients, we listen to you and work with you to resolve your dispute quickly, giving you a range of solutions and costs involved.

We believe that it’s not always necessary to resort to court action to overcome differences. Although traditional litigation still plays a key role, resolution can often be achieved through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), which includes arbitration, mediation, and negotiation. During this process, we’ll work with you to achieve your goal in less time, and at a lower cost.

Our successful team of 6 specialist lawyers, led by Director Chris Ozimic, provide a combined expertise and experience of 109 years.

FAQs

Your questions answered. Take a look at some our frequently asked questions for more Information.

When should I involve SE-Solicitors in my dispute
You should involve us at the earliest opportunity, so that we may advise you on how best to approach resolving the dispute and take the appropriate pre-action steps, which may avoid your dispute ending up in court or result in immediate protection through injunctive relief.
What is Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) ?
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a collective name given to forums of dispute resolution which are not standard Court proceedings. The majority of disputes are now resolved before a full trial. ADR includes mediation, arbitration and negotiation.
Does SE-Solicitors offer ADR?
Yes we do. Traditional litigation can be a time consuming, costly and stressful process. We believe that it’s not always necessary to resort to court action to overcome differences and will work with you to achieve your goals quickly and at a lower cost.
How can I fund the legal costs of my dispute?
You should always check your existing property, car or business insurance policies to ascertain if you have legal expenses cover in place which covers your dispute.

Depending on the nature, strength and value of your case it may be possible to obtain after the event insurance, to cover third party payments, such as court and barrister fees, and the risk of having to pay the your opponent’s costs if you are unsuccessful in bringing a claim. This type of insurance does not cover our fees, but we may be willing to act for you under a Conditional Fee or a Damages Based Agreement, sharing the risk of litigation with you in return for either receiving a success fee or taking a percentage share of your damages.

In high value cases it may also be possible to source funding from a litigation funder, who will invest in the litigation for a funding fee, typically a multiple of cash advanced or a percentage of your damages.

What is an Injunction?
An injunction is an Order from the Court stopping a person from taking a particular action (a prohibitor injunction) or requiring a person to do something (a mandatory injunction).
