Business Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Disputes can lead to expensive, time-consuming and stressful court litigation. PCB’s skilled team can help to resolve disputes, whether by negotiation, arbitration, mediation or court action.
Whether the dispute involves a large sum of money under a building contract, or a consumer problem over the purchase of a defective product, a claim for compensation for a personal injury, or dispute with a neighbour over a boundary, we are here to help.
If you become involved in a dispute - or circumstances which could lead to a dispute - it is important to obtain advice at an early stage as to your legal position. Sound advice in the early stages can help to reduce the escalation of a problem which may end up costing a great deal in terms of your time and the damaging of personal or business relationships, let alone legal costs.
Many people find themselves involved in a dispute through no fault of their own, in situations which demand some form of action to recover losses, or defend claims made against them.
Our aim is to resolve problems as quickly and cost effectively as possible, ensuring the best possible outcome for you. We can advise you on your prospects of success and the possible value of a claim. We can negotiate on your behalf, assist you in identifying alternative means of dispute resolution (such as mediation) and, if necessary, act on your behalf in bringing or defending court proceedings.
We can advise in relation to ways of funding the costs of litigation.
