What is a Civil Dispute?

Civil Disputes are those between two individuals or an individual and an organisation. The different types of Civil Dispute include:

What is a Contract Dispute?

Contract Disputes arise from a transaction that involves two or more parties. They are extremely varied, but can include:

  • Faulty goods and/or vehicles
  • Poor quality workmanship from a tradesman
  • Warranty disputes
  • Incorrect utility bills
  • Rejected insurance claims
  • Non-delivery of good purchased

Because contract disputes do not usually involve criminal activity, they are managed under civil law.

How can I resolve a Civil Dispute or Contractual Dispute?

There are two main ways of resolving a dispute, either through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) or Litigation.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

We will always recommend one of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods before taking a matter to court. These methods can include negotiation, mediation, conciliation, and arbitration. If you can resolve a dispute this way, you will avoid using a great deal of time and money that a court case would require.

Civil Litigation

Unfortunately, sometimes the ADR process fails or is not possible and therefore you may have to bring a civil claim to resolve the dispute. Litigation is not a quick or straightforward process, but not all cases have to go to trial and can be resolved before a court date.

How we can help

Our specialist solicitors are highly experienced in all types of Contractual Disputes and Civil Law Disputes. We will discuss your case with you and ensure that you are fully informed of every step of the process, whether that is through resolution or litigation, including:

  • Evaluating your claim and advising the possible outcomes
  • Advising the costs involved and discuss funding options
  • Liaising with the other parties to gain full information of the dispute
  • Gathering evidence to support your case
  • Negotiating with the other parties to try and resolve the claim

If litigation is necessary, we will:

  • Lodge the claim with the applicable court and serve the defendant, or lodge your intention to defend a claim
  • Understand the court’s timetable for proceedings and plan accordingly
  • Represent you in court
  • Debate for a judgment in your favour or lodge an appeal if required
