Dispute Resolution

Our specialist Dispute Resolution team strives to resolve disputes and we pride ourselves on our practical and commercial approach to our clients’ problems.

Dispute Resolution

No one likes being involved in disputes, especially if costly and time-consuming litigation is likely. The chances are though, that, at some point, you will be involved in a conflict situation. It’s therefore important to know that you can turn to someone in order to receive pragmatic and astute advice.

At Rooks Rider Solicitors LLP, dispute resolution is not about legal ‘point scoring’ between solicitors, but rather about resolving disputes sensibly and cost-effectively. We understand the commercial realities of being involved in disputes, the time and financial pressures these cause and that, given the chance, most people prefer to settle quickly and on agreed terms, rather than leaving a Judge to determine the outcome, with all the uncertainties that brings.

On occasion, circumstances dictate that Court proceedings are the necessary route. However, where this is not the case, we will advise you of any appropriate ‘alternative dispute resolution’ procedures that are available to help you resolve the dispute without the need to go to Court, such as negotiation, mediation, arbitration and expert determination. Keeping your objectives in mind, we will then advise and guide you through that process until the resolution of your dispute.

Where litigation is unavoidable (or your preferred option), we will utilise the full scope of our significant expertise to achieve the best possible result for you and to ensure that the litigation is handled both efficiently and cost-effectively.

As legal costs are likely to be at the forefront of concern, where appropriate, we will also advise on the availability of litigation costs funding and After the Event legal expenses insurance.

Case Studies

The client obtained a Judgment from a High Court in Asia, against two individuals of English nationality.  The Judgment obtained was full and final with no right of appeal.  The client was concerned how the Judgment could be enforced and how money could be recovered from the two Defendants, given their place of residence was in England.
