Our solicitors give you clear litigation advice

If you have had any legal disputes in your business, you know how painful they can be. At best they are time consuming. At worst they cost you money, relationships and – maybe worst of all – your reputation.

Yet sadly, in today’s increasingly regulated world, commercial legal disputes are an unwanted fact of business life.

But we can help you no matter what type of dispute you are facing. This is because we are one of the largest and most experienced departments of solicitors and legal professionals in the Midlands. A department that has top rankings in commercial litigation and professional negligence litigation in The Legal 500 directory; the definitive guide to the best lawyers in the UK.

What’s more, Chief Executive and Head of Litigation, Qamer Ghafoor, along with Chairman and Senior Partner, Andrew Cochrane, are two of just a handful solicitors named on the Legal 500’s ‘Leading Individual’ list of solicitors in the East Midlands.

How our solicitors can help you

Our goal is to maximise your chances of bringing your dispute to a successful conclusion, whilst minimising your costs and risk. To do this, we view every dispute we work on as unique. Sometimes our approach is forceful, sometimes it is more measured.

Either way, our solicitors always make calculated decisions that are in your commercial interest. If you decide to work with us on your legal dispute, there is a high chance we will help you through alternative dispute resolution rather than taking this to court. Although we can take your dispute to court if needs be.

You might be pleased to know that the majority of disputes our solicitors advise on settle successfully out of court – a record that we are very proud of – and something that can save you an awful lot of time, hassle and money.
