Our approach to dispute resolution

We appreciate that disputes can be divisive, disruptive and expensive to resolve, but that there may be points of principle at stake. We will discuss your objectives at an early stage and consider the practical steps involved in pursuing a resolution alongside issues such as insurance cover for any claim, reputation protection and, of course, cost.

We offer a cohesive dispute resolution service, identifying and advising on related issues as they arise, such as data protection or Charity Commission reporting.
