Litigation and Dispute Resolution

In business and in everyday life, disagreements happen. How they are approached from the start often determines the eventual outcome. The result can never be guaranteed, but when you first come to see us at LMK Law, we take the time to understand all of the issues so that we can advise you realistically on the best course of action.

There may always be an element of risk in litigation, and if a case is unsuccessful, it can be expensive. We provide you with dedicated, one-to-one advice throughout, and in litigation cases this continuity of service is crucial:

  • We are on top of the facts at all times
  • We respond quickly and effectively to developments as they arise
  • We provide a consistent and reliable service at a time of uncertainty

Our solicitors work hard to resolve issues without going to court — we encourage dialogue and alternative methods of dispute resolution to settle matters to avoid unnecessary costs. It may help to involve a commercial mediator, and we have built up a good network of expert mediators whom we can approach to assist. If we face an unreasonable opponent, however, we have the experience to initiate proceedings at the right time and to defend your position with vigour.
