Disputes are a fact of life modern day life. Still, finding yourself in a dispute with;

  • A neighbour
  • Someone at work, or
  • Someone you have hired

Can be a lengthy and stressful experience.

Our dispute resolution solicitors can help you resolve a wide range of disputes.


What is a Civil Dispute?

Civil or personal disputes are private cases in which one or more parties want;

  • Compensation, or
  • A solution

To a situation that outside of criminal law.

Civil disputes are governed by The Civil Procedure Rules which simplify legal proceedings. These rules are the framework on which all civil disputes are judged. Especially where no specific laws exist.

They are designed to reduce both the cost of civil cases and how long they take to resolve.


Common Types of Civil Dispute

There are lots of types of civil disputes. Here are just a few that Rotheras can help you resolve;

You could find yourself in a dispute as a claimant, defendant, or a witness to someone else’s case.


Dispute Resolution Options

There are two main ways of resolving disputes;

1. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

It is always best to use an Alternative Dispute Resolution method before taking a case to court. There are several methods of alternative resolution. These include;

  • Mediation
  • Round table negotiation
  • Arbitration, or
  • Conciliation

Alternative Dispute Resolution can prevent long and complex court cases, saving both time and money.

2. Civil Litigation

If alternative dispute resolution does not work, we might start court proceedings. Not all civil dispute cases go to court, even if we start court proceedings. If they do, they can be long and complex.


Why Choose Rotheras?

Our civil dispute lawyers have considerable experience in a wide range of disputes. We have represented clients in County Court, High Court, and special tribunals.

That said, we will always try to settle a dispute with alternative dispute resolution methods first.

When you instruct us to represent you, we will assign a dedicated solicitor to your case. They will work with you from the start of your dispute, all the way through to resolution.

We work closely with you to establish the full details of your dispute. We can then provide advice on the best strategy to resolve your dispute as quickly as possible.

We can also draw on the experience of our other departments including;

  • Debt recovery
  • Commercial property and
  • Corporate law

National rail strikes

National Rail Strikes: What if employees can’t get into work because of the strikes?

In 2020, the Department of Transport reported that 37% of people used the trains to commute to work. With the post-pandemic increase in demand for employees to start coming back to the office, the planned National Rail strikes this summer will have an impact on thousands of employees and their employers.
