What is Dispute Resolution?

Disputes happen every day and are usually resolved so quickly that we don’t even recognise them in the first place. For example, two people bumping into each other on the street is usually met with mutual apologies before both people walk away without a second thought. Receiving the wrong order in a restaurant is commonly resolved by alerting the waiting staff who switch it there and then.

That being said, we recognise that not all potential disputes are settled as effortlessly.

A range of disputes have come through our doors at Jackson Boyd. Our dispute resolution lawyers act for broad spectrum of individual and commercial clients.  We have particular expertise in the following areas:-

  • Contract disputes;
  • Consumer disputes;
  • Debt recovery;
  • Property and boundary disputes;
  • Landlord and tenant disputes;
  • Professional negligence.

Each client and each dispute is unique. We will give you clear and pragmatic advice setting out the merits of your case, the options available to you, and the risks you may face.

We understand that having a legal dispute in your life is not an expected matter, and may be uncomfortable and all-consuming. Although the team has a depth of experience in litigation, we recognise that, for most people, court proceedings are seen as a last resort. Therefore, part of the strategic advice we offer will be a consideration of all options for dispute resolution, including negotiation, arbitration and mediation. Our approach reflects the concern, which all clients have to minimise costs by working as closely as possible to agreed budgets.

That being said, there will be occasions when a court action is necessary in order to expedite matters or in situations where the third party is not willing to enter into settlement negotiation.  Our team of experienced litigators will not shy away from taking your case to court in order to resolve matters in your favour.

Our expert team are here to guide you through the legal dispute resolution process, from the initial letter to the final one.
