"I have used Neves previously for a number of transactions and recently I used their services for a possession order regarding a property. I had the pleasure of liaising with Charlotte Clements during the situation. We were let down by the restrictions of Covid19 but Charlotte went out of her way to make the transaction a lot easier. The pricing was given to us from the start and what I appreciated the most was the transparency and honesty from Charlotte. She kept us updated throughout the whole process; albeit we hit a few hurdles due to a very difficult tenant. We have today gained possession of our property via the High Court and are extremely grateful to Charlotte and Neves for all their efforts, support and help during what was a very difficult and stressful time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Neves to anyone looking for a professional and efficient service. Charlotte is definitely an asset to the firm. Thank you again - an extremely satisfied client."

Trusted, straightforward advice for dispute resolution

Despite our best endeavours and sometimes through no fault of our own we can find ourselves involved in legal disputes. Should you find your business faced with a dispute or potential dispute, it is very important to understand what your business is getting involved in. It is usually better to find a commercial solution to a dispute rather than resort to court action. 

Practical steps to take when a dispute arises.

  • Your business should take legal advice as soon as possible after an incident occurs. If you receive any formal documents requiring a response within a specified time, take legal advice immediately.

  • Do not leave everything to the last minute. There are time limits that your business needs to comply with.

  • You should consider whether talking to the other party without having a lawyer present is appropriate, whilst talking is sometimes the best way of resolving a dispute quickly. You do not want to say something that may be used against you at a later date if the dispute continues.
  • Do not admit anything or agree to settle without taking legal advice unless you are absolutely certain as to the implications of the agreed terms.

  • Limit internal discussions to those with a real “need to know”. However, ensure that anyone within your business with day-to-day contact with the other party is aware that there is a potential dispute.

Before getting involved in a legal dispute there are many things worth considering, such as the value of the claim, the costs involved and the overall effect this could have on your business.

Negotiating a settlement

You should not consider it a sign of weakness to approach the other side to explore the chances of a settlement. This can be done at any time during the litigation process, even during a trial, if the dispute gets this far. Settlement negotiations facilitated by a neutral third party (known as mediation) are increasingly popular.

Our dispute resolution team of specialist solicitors at our Milton Keynes office can help you to resolve these disputes and review the remedies available, so give us a call.
