Disputes Happen

Unfortunately, there are times in business when disputes arise.

This could be as a result of non-payment of your invoices or a dispute about the services provided by one or more parties to an agreement.

Each situation is different and more often than not, early intervention is key to resolving a dispute.

Usually, a letter of demand setting out the claim and providing adequate time to pay should resolve the situation.

Dispute Resolution Services

In some circumstances, unfortunately some people will only pay once they receive a letter from a lawyer, or a statement of claim.

We have a lot of experience in dispute resolution and can assist you, even if it’s obtaining a short advice about the prospects of success of a claim or writing to the other side.

If you’ve received a statement of claim or statutory demand, you need to act fast in order to comply with relevant time limits, so don’t delay in getting some tailored advice.

We provide customised legal guidance and are focused on providing the right solutions to your dispute or legal issues.

Dispute Resolution FAQs

How to settle a dispute without going to court?

There are alternatives to settling a dispute without going to court.

In some instances, direct negotiation and mediation may result in a resolution.  If a solution is agreed to, put it in writing and provide a copy to the other party.

If that fails, you could seek legal advice, even if it’s obtaining a short advice about the prospects of success of writing to the other side.

In many situations, a letter of demand setting out the claim and providing adequate time to pay should resolve the situation.

However in some circumstances, further action may be required. We recommend obtaining legal advice before proceeding with any further action.

What is a statement of claim?

A Statement of Claim (SoC) is a document filed with the court when you’re having a dispute with another party who owes you money or goods.

SoC’s are serious and timely legal documents which are the beginning of court proceedings. Therefore, we recommend obtaining legal advice ASAP if you have received a SoC.

What are dispute resolution clauses?

Dispute resolution clauses are contractual provisions by which parties specify how their disputes are to be resolved. Including a dispute resolution clause in your Terms and Conditions is extremely beneficial as it establishes a process for resolving disputes that the parties are required to follow, often resulting in less clients/customers taking you to Court.
