The usual steps to help you are:

  • An initial chat
  • Assessment of any documents or evidence
  • Meeting to discuss and consider options
  • Agreeing what work needs to be done
  • Taking action
  • Ongoing discussions and changes as disputes change and evolve

Disputes usually require a third party to intervene and look at the issue from a practical rather than an emotional perspective. In doing so, the answer can often become quite clear.

In the event that a dispute cannot be resolved amicably, and court proceedings are required, we can assist and advise you through the process.
