Disputes & Court Claims.

Dispute Resolution Solicitors & Civil Litigation Lawyers for Court Claims.

If you are involved in a dispute of any kind, it can be a very stressful situation.

Our dispute resolution and civil litigation solicitors here at Lanyon Bowdler can be your professional guides through the process from start to finish – even if the end result is a trial at the small claims court.

We pride ourselves on being approachable, friendly and professional, and we will be realistic about your case. That means we will give you clear guidance about the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and what we expect the outcomes to be, as well as the likely timescale and costs.

The cost of legal action is often a major stumbling block – indeed, it sometimes puts people off at the outset – so here at Lanyon Bowdler we have developed a range of pricing options, including fixed fees and service level guarantees.

The advantage of a fixed fee is that it gives you certainty about what you will be paying.

We are able to take your case all the way to a hearing, and represent you in court with a team of selected barristers, or we can give you the tools and confidence to handle the hearing yourself, which will keep costs down even more.

You even have the option of a ‘pay as you go’ service in low value cases which may not need to go to trial, when we would give you the support and information needed to represent yourself.

The typical kinds of disputes we handle include:

  • Property repossession
  • Land disputes
  • Insurance claim problems
  • Boundary disputes
  • Claims against professionals or tradesmen
  • Issues with rental property
  • Debt recovery
  • Problems with high-value goods, such as cars, electrical goods, furniture and caravans
