Consumer Rights Disputes
Businesses and service providers have a duty to ensure that the products or services they are selling comply with the expected standard. If a business fails in this regard and refuses to rectify the issue then you could find yourself in dispute with them and may even find yourself in need of legal representation.
In some cases a business will try to resolve the issue by offering to fix or replace a product that is faulty, improve a bad service or provide you with a refund; however if these options have not been offered to you and the business refuses to acknowledge a problem with its product or service then seeking legal advice can help you to resolve the matter quickly.
Consumer rights law can be confusing; as a result many people are unsure how to resolve the issue and decide not to exercise their legal rights. At Rotheras our Dispute Resolution team are well-versed in advising and representing clients in relation to consumer rights disputes.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.
