Civil Litigation & Contract Disputes

Becoming embroiled in a contract dispute can become protracted, expensive and most of all very stressful. You will need to instruct a lawyer who can see the ‘wood from the trees’, who can make practical decisions for you, who can take out the emotion (which often forms part of a contract dispute), who can provide intuitive thinking, who can guide you to success.


As the national winners of ‘The Federation of Small Businesses Award for Triumph over Adversity’, we believe there is no firm better than us to fight your corner and win your case.

We look at everything as a whole; the chances of success, the cost of getting you the result, alternative solutions for you.

We understand that the cost of paying for the advice can be prohibitive and we firmly believe in access to justice. We therefore offer many commercially attractive funding options for our clients that will suit all our Clients finances.

If you know the claim amount the court fee is based on the amount you’re claiming, plus interest.
