Dispute Resolution & Litigation

jargon-free and commercial

Our team of litigation solicitors have acted, and continue to act, for a wide variety of individuals and businesses dealing with their legal disputes, both outside and within the Court system. We, at Wheelers, take a refreshingly pragmatic approach to all litigation by working closely with you to identify a practical and cost effective solution to your dispute.

How we can help

Court litigation can be time consuming, costly and stressful. However, where litigation is your best option, our prime objective is to ensure that your legal case is presented to your opponent and the Court in the most persuasive manner possible.

We will identify whether your case has a realistic prospect of succeeding and formulate a legal strategy with you. Having done so, we will advise carefully on the methods of funding your case and assess so far as we can, the approximate cost to you so that you can budget accordingly. Even when Court proceedings have started, mediation and negotiation are encouraged and built into the Court process so that most cases are resolved without reaching trial, saving you time and costs. Where appropriate, therefore, we will seek to obtain a resolution of your dispute through alternative dispute resolution methods, which include mediation, arbitration and adjudication.

Every case evolves in its own unique manner; your case will be subjected to a continuing assessment of risk management and cost analysis particularly at the point when we see your opponent’s evidence. We ensure that at every stage in the litigation process, you are kept fully in the picture.

We recognise the importance of ensuring legal costs remain in proportion with the sum claimed. Emphasis is placed on preventing delay and ensuring that your case gets to trial as soon as possible. There are various penalties that the Court can now impose against a slow and dilatory opponent.

We have extensive advocacy experience at all levels. We have also developed an excellent professional relationship with Barristers, ensuring that you always have access to the best possible and most appropriate professional legal advice to help with your case.
