"Dispute Resolution" is the area of law that is dealt with generally in the county and high courts where one is suing or is being sued for money or property. It can vary from multi million pound company and partnership battles to simple rent arrears cases or professional negligence actions. When you have a requirement for litigation we understand you require speed, efficiency and an understanding of commercial risk. At Owen White & Catlin we have a team of skilled and experienced solicitors who will take time to understand your business needs and devise a litigation strategy that best suits you.
We will listen, provide wise counsel as well as legal expertise and offer innovative solutions to address and resolve issues on your behalf. We will advise on your position and your options through to helping you take appropriate action.
We have an experienced Commercial Litigation team of solicitors who offer expertise in the following areas:
- Contractual disputes
- Debt recovery
- Professional negligence
- Property litigation
In certain specific circumstances, Owen White & Catlin can represent parties on a no win, no fee basis. This is subject to a number of factors, including the volume of claims, the merits of the case and the financial circumstances of the opponent. The decision whether or not to deal with the claim on a no win, no fee basis is entirely at the discretion of the partners at Owen White & Catlin.
If the claim is dealt with on a no win, no fee basis, then it means that in the event of an unsuccessful outcome, you would not normally be liable for our legal fees.
We can also advise you on obtaining an After the Event insurance policy which would cover you against your opponent’s legal fees and disbursement if you lost, and potentially your own disbursements.
Non-personal injury claims with a value of under £10,000 cannot be dealt with on a no win, no fee basis, because the costs are not recoverable from the opponent.
In certain specific cases, we can also deal with a claim on a contingency fee basis, again entirely at the discretion of the partners.
