Civil litigation solicitors

We have specialist expertise in many areas including: 

Commercial property and lease disputes – issues such as rent arrears, termination and renewal of leases, taking possession and breach of lease.

Contractual disputes and debt recovery – we have a wealth of experience on complex contractual disputes and effective processes to help you recover debts such as enforcing court orders against debtors.

Defamation – our specialist libel and slander solicitors can tell you if you have grounds to make a claim.  There is a 12 month time limit on these claims – so act quickly if you think you have a case. 

Intellectual property – IP disputes tend to be complex and it’s vital for the wellbeing of your business that you get specialist legal advice. We can identify and explain the threats you may face and how to protect yourself, as well as how to make the most of your intellectual property.

Company disputes - we know what makes partners tick and have a lot of experience of handling the sorts of disputes that can break out about, for example, about the strategy, partner performance or succession planning. It’s vital that you start pulling in the same direction again and we can help.

Corporate recovery, restructuring and insolvency - If your business is facing the prospect of insolvency, our litigation solicitors will help you act quickly and find a resolution. Our insolvency experts work on all aspects of administrations, receiverships and liquidations. Talking to an insolvency expert will be your vital first step towards sorting out what is usually a very complicated process.

What our clients say

Mr Jon Tidbury, Ramsden Trailer Conversions


I'd like to say how helpful Sarah Stanyer was. Sarah gave me a very reassuring phone call and great advice first thing, followed by an excellent email that appears to have made the gentleman in question back down. For the average 'Joe Bloggs' like me with no legal knowledge, it was invaluable.

Mr Nick Loftus


I have instructed Caroline Metcalf twice on what turned out to be very complex and protracted disputes and on both occasions Caroline’s hard work and determination have ensured we’ve reached a very satisfactory resolution. I felt that Caroline was as keen as I was to achieve a favourable outcome for me and was completely committed to ensuring that this happened. She is always incredibly responsive, diligent in all she does and very pleasant to deal with.
