Legal disputes and issues which affect you personally are, by their very nature, distracting but they can also be immensely stressful, time consuming and emotionally draining. Our team of qualified and experienced dispute resolution solicitors, based in Southampton and Winchester, recognise that there is a need to navigate and resolve these matters quickly and with the minimum of fuss: we welcome the opportunity to help you to do so both successfully and efficiently.
Wherever possible, we will advise you as if we were standing in your shoes; providing not just legal comment on your situation but also our honest opinion on what we would do if we were you, in plain English. We can be involved in your case as much or as little as you would like us to be; whether you seek a one hour appointment to go through a claim you are managing for yourself, or to instruct us to have complete conduct of your case. We will match our service to your requirements and financial circumstances.
From our many years in practice we have learned that you will want to speak to someone from the outset who has the right level of experience, who can get to grips with the issues quickly and who will advise you of your options as well as the possible costs involved in pursuing those options. Our lawyers will work with you to agree the best strategy for you to achieve an appropriate outcome in line with your objectives. Combining strength in depth of technical legal expertise with a fresh project managed approach and proportionate cost funding options, we will help you achieve your aim, whether this lies on the other side of litigation, arbitration or alternative dispute resolution, or simply in a specific piece of legal advice to set you on the right track.
Our team, which comprises expertise in a wide and varied range of specialisms, is headed by experienced partner, David Eminton. To suit your needs, we are able to field a number of lawyers to work with you in a legal team, for example, to handle larger or more complex disputes, whilst also being able to advise and assist you on a purely one to one basis, if that is what you would prefer.
