We have expertise in acting for individuals in a wide range of disputes. Our team here at Guillaumes understands that being party to litigation is a stressful event and we aim to make the process as stress free for you as possible.
Whether acting for you as a Claimant or Defendant, we have experience of claims in respect of debt actions, disputed wills & probate claims (including claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975), Court of Protection disputes, claims for a beneficial interest in land/property, breach of trust, insolvency advice and proceedings including service of statutory demands, bankruptcy petitions, professional negligence, fraud, tort of deceit claims, validity of agreements, misrepresentation, mistakes in documents and rectification, partnership disputes, sponsorship agreements, banking disputes, claims for unpaid commission, enforcement action including attachment of earnings, charging orders and instruction of Bailiffs, international tracing actions, service out of jurisdiction and emergency injunctions.
The Courts and Tribunals should be seen as an option of last resort and we aim to use practical and creative solutions to achieve an early cost effective resolution to your case if possible. We are equally at home with an assertive litigious approach or a more conciliatory stance aimed at maintaining personal or business relationships.
We conduct litigation in Courts, Tribunals and arbitrations and deal with disputes in Surrey, London, the UK and internationally. Where appropriate we have settled disputes through negotiation, expert determination, mediation services and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
Should litigation be required, we will consider with you the best strategy to achieve your objectives. We aim to help you understand the issues in dispute and keep you fully informed as the case proceeds. We also ensure that you understand the level of legal costs incurred at each stage of your case. In cases where a party is not capable of managing their own affairs because they lack the necessary capacity to do so, we can also arrange the employment of a power of attorney solicitor to help manage personal disputes.
