Civil Litigation and Property Disputes

Whether you are a business or an individual, disputes are always disruptive and emotive. If you get as far as litigation, you need the help of lawyers with substantial court and litigation experience.

Before a matter reaches court, we will do our utmost to resolve the issue swiftly and without resorting to Court. We will discuss with you whether that should be mediation or an informal meeting and we can negotiate on your behalf. When settlement is reached we can draft a comprehensive agreement to set out the terms.

Court cases take time and money to resolve but the outcome is often critical. It may not feel like a battle you can win but with Abbleys on your side, starting or challenging legal proceedings does not have to be quite so daunting.

When cases arise it is in your best interests to seek expert advice. It is crucial to the success of your case that you can present the facts (in correspondence and witness evidence) in the best way possible. Equally, do not underestimate the importance of following procedure – not complying with rules or orders can mean your case is dismissed or you pay the other side’s costs.
