Specialists in Dispute Resolution

Dispute Resolution Experts Eccles Heddon Solicitors Yorkshire and Cumbria

Sadly, it is almost inevitable that in the course of everyday dealings with others, whether on a private or commercial level, disputes will occur or accidents happen because of someone else’s fault. It is then a question of how to resolve those disputes and achieve settlement in the most sensible and cost-efficient manner.

It is important to appreciate that letting a dispute ‘brew’ can be detrimental and instructing a solicitor to act on your behalf from the outset should help to clarify the issues at an earlier stage, which may result in the dispute being settled rather more quickly – saving both money and stress.

OUR SERVICES EXPLAINED

Contractual Disputes

Most people enter contracts daily, whether in a personal capacity or that in business. When a disagreement arises, it is important to seek professional advice from a member of our specialist Litigation Team from the outset. You will need to understand whether there is even a contract in place, if so, what the contract states, the position of both parties in light of the events that have occurred and what action / remedies are available to either party. We will be able to talk through any options with you in a clear, easy to understand manner and offer our thoughts on any wider implications. It should also be appreciated there may be a wider balance at play, with both reputation and maintaining working relationships at stake. Having received this information, you will be in a much better position to decide how to proceed, and we can work with you accordingly.

Contractual Disputes

Contentious Probate and Inheritance Disputes

Disputes involving an estate are both sensitive and stressful. Our Litigation Team are on hand to help executors or beneficiaries with any issues they may face. Working closely with our existing Private Client Team, we have the experience and knowledge to deal with any common issues that may arise. This might include circumstances where a will has or will require challenging, a will does not make reasonably provision for a family member, there has been a disagreement over the value of an asset or how the Will is interpreted. We can also assist with any subsequent action that may be required, for instance, an action to remove an executor or an application to course for directions over the administration of an estate. By instructing our team of probate solicitors, you have confidence of knowing everything will be handled correctly, in a cost-effective outcome.

Landlord and Tenant Disputes

Eccles Heddon advise both Landlord and Tenants daily and we are often asked to deal with common disputes arising from a tenancy. Whether it concerns a dispute about the repair of a property, dilapidation claim, service charge arrears, failing to return a deposit, disputes over how the property is managed, the likelihood will be that we have come across the situation before and we have the experience, knowledge and time to listen. We appreciate such matters can be stressful and it is important to grasp the crux of a matter early so we can provide helpful advice from the outset and guide you through every step and scenario along the way. We can help deal with a dispute in an efficient and effect way.

Landlord and Tenant Disputes

Consumer Disputes

There is nothing more frustrating than buying a faulty product or receiving a bad service. In some situations, you can claim against the business that sold you the product / service. Contact one of our Litigation Solicitors today to see how we can help. However, please note that if the claim is for less than £10,000, it is unlikely that you will be able to recover any legal cost from the opponent (even where you are successful).

Consumer Disputes

Financial/Insurance Disputes

Most individuals have some form of insurance policy. This could be building insurance to pet or other income protections. What happens when a claim is made, and the insurance company refuses to pay? Contact one of our Litigation Solicitors today to see how we can help.

Financial/Insurance Disputes

Partnership/Shareholder Disputes

Running a business is both difficult and stressful, worse still when a dispute arises between business partners. To mitigate any further anxiety / worry, and perhaps most importantly, ensure the business is not adversely affected, early advice should be sought from an expert within our Litigation Team. We have a solid understanding of the different types of partnership and regularly draft partnership agreements. We can review the circumstances that have arisen, consider and interpret any key obligations within the partnership agreement and move quicky to provide valuable and insightful advice to assist you going forward. We have expertise in the dissolution and termination of partnerships, the partition of partnership assets (farms), retirement of partners and claims for breaches of fiduciary duty or misuse of the business current account.
