In an increasingly competitive world, invariably disputes arise. And when they do, Prettys' litigation lawyers guide clients through to resolution as smoothly as possible, whether the matter is a multi-million pound dispute or of lower value.
We provide a realistic and objective assessment of the situation, suggest possible courses of action and discuss in full the implications and likely outcomes. We aim to achieve practical, workable solutions that suit the objectives of the business involved.
Disputes can range from breach of contract and sale of goods disagreements to major issues involving construction, engineering and property. Many cases involve problems that are internal to an organisation, such as partnership and shareholder disputes. We also have particular experience in insolvency and bankruptcy proceedings.
Prettys provide sensible, practical solutions and sound advice based on a wealth of experience. We are leading advocates of alternative dispute resolution and other alternatives to what can be lengthy and costly court proceedings.
Our litigators work closely with other lawyers specialising in employment, company, commercial and property law. We take a holistic view of a business and the wider implications of any given course of action.
Prettys is also able to offer assistance where required with legal proceedings outside England and Wales by utilising an established network of experienced foreign legal correspondents.
