Litigation

Litigation

Our director – Michael Coyle – is Solicitor Advocate, meaning that we are able to represent you in all civil courts throughout England and Wales, so there is no need to appoint external counsel. Not only does this mean that we can deal with the whole process for you, but it also reduces your costs.

We are available to represent you across a wide range of actions, including:

  • Contractual claims and recoveries
  • Commercial litigation
  • Commercial contracts
  • Legal disputes
  • Shareholder and partnership dispute
  • Trademark and copyright infringement
  • Passing off actions
  • Patent and design right actions
  • Defamation actions

 

Although we are prepared to take a case to court whenever necessary, we always try to avoid litigation whenever possible through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and arbitration. This is in your best interests as it will save you the money, time and effort that a court case entails. However, if court proceedings are inevitable then we will pour all our effort and resources into ensuring a successful outcome for you.

Fees

Whenever possible we work on a set fee basis, but the amount very much depends on your circumstances. On occasion, we can also accept County and High Court action cases on a no win-no fee basis, but this is also subject to the nature of the situation.
