Civil Dispute Resolution
Alternative Dispute Resolution in Civil Matters
It is preferred to keep civil disputes out of the courts and look to mediation. At Burt Brill & Cardens, we are experienced in pursuing ADR in civil disputes. With our fully trained mediators, you can reach an agreement without the need for litigation. We can arrange mediation meetings where all parties can discuss the matter and work towards a resolution without the need to go to court.
When litigation is required, our team has obtained extensive experience in civil law cases. We are highly organised and ensure that no details are overlooked, essential when dealing with the large amounts of paperwork involved in civil litigation.
Throughout the Civil Litigation process, we will keep you informed of our progress in jargon-free terms.
Civil Litigation costs
We are mindful that you will want to know about the possible legal costs around civil litigation. At Burt Brill & Cardens we provide transparency of costs before starting work. Once we have helped you identify your case objective and the likely timescale, we will provide you with a clear cost breakdown for each stage. Fixed fees are also an option when workable.
