Litigation Matters

Litigation Matters

We offer a free initial interview to discuss and assess any kind of civil dispute including the possibilities open to you, what those options might cost and the range of methods of funding that might be available.


Please call today to see how we can help.

Civil disputes unavoidably arise from time to time, whether it be with a family member or neighbour, an employer or employee or someone you have done business with either commercially on behalf of your own business or as a private individual.


Few people willingly find themselves before a Court or Tribunal and the various processes involved can seem intimidating and difficult to follow. At Platt & Fishwick, we have accumulated wide experience of all kinds of disputes over many years and are here to guide you through whatever type of case it might be.


Quite rightly, the Courts themselves regard litigation as a last resort and encourage parties to settle their disputes were they can either by negotiation or some other form of alternative dispute resolution. At Platt & Fishwick we will advise you on the range of options open to you but with the experience and ability to take firm and decisive action as and when needed.


Our litigation department deals with all types of civil dispute including:


                  Business disputes

                  Employment claims for both employer and employee

                  Contractual disputes and consumer claims

                  All aspects of property litigation

                  Wills and Inheritance Act matters

                  Debt recovery
