Ways to resolve a dispute

Though most of us would rather avoid a dispute, sometimes it’s just not possible. That’s when you need specialist advice, both about the strength of your argument, and how best to resolve the issue.

With a wealth of experience over a whole range of disputes, we can help you to choose the right course of action. Taking your matter to Court is still an option but increasingly clients are finding that alternative routes like mediation and negotiation can be less traumatic and more effective than the Courtroom in solving disagreements.

By trying to find creative solutions and using a full range of alternatives, where possible we aim to help you to avoid Court litigation by means of mediation and negotiation.

Finding resolution through discussion

If you are having issues with someone, either a dispute with another business or in your personal life, how do you seek a resolution? Should you wish, you could benefit from our years of experience in the Courtroom. However, these days there are potentially more productive and far less destructive alternatives to consider.

Mediation

Where Court litigation deals in confrontation and argument, mediation encourages reasoned discussion. A skilled mediator can help you establish communication even where it has completely broken down.
Whether in business or in a personal relationship the benefits can often include savings in emotional stress, time and cost. Even the most strained business and personal relationships can sometimes be restored and preserved.

Collaborative Law

This also involves a discussion rather than an argument. Each party is represented by a solicitor who agrees in advance to seek a resolution by reasoned discussion, and agrees not to represent their client further should Court litigation become unavoidable.

Funding your case

“How much will it cost me?” is often one of the first question clients ask when considering whether to seek legal advice.
For your peace of mind, Thomas Dunton is able to offer a wide range of funding options that may be suitable to your case. These include the fixed fee interview, where you are able to talk through your concerns with a specialist lawyer, while knowing exactly what it will cost.

  • Dear Lisa, Maria and Tessa,

    Thank you all for your amazing support throughout last year. It really was a hideous experience, but every time I got to the point I couldn’t breathe and I spoke to one of you, I felt instantly strong again. You really are a fabulous team.

    When Margaret left, I was really worried, but Maria you picked up the baton and ran with it brilliantly. Then when Maria you obviously had to put your own family first, Tessa picked up the baton and just kept running for me. Lisa you made me giggle and reassured me whenever I was about to cry or hide in a cupboard, often picking up the phone to check I was ok – so very kind. Crackerjack will now forever remind me of you!

    I will recommend you to any of my friends who decide they need to take this brave step. You are simply the best. I hope you all enjoy your acorns, and remind you of how much you’ve helped people like me get out of unhappy situations. As they say, from acorns mighty oaks grow.

    Many thanks to you all,

    I kind of miss you!!
