Private Disputes

It is an unfortunate fact of life that even the most cautious of people can become involved in legal disputes with other individuals or businesses, through no fault of their own. Whether you need to make a claim against another person to enforce your legal rights, or defend a claim made against you, we have the knowledge and experience in a wide range of legal disputes to provide you with sound legal and practical advice.

The law and the court process can be complex and intimidating for people who are not used to it. It can also be stressful, time consuming and expensive. However we pride ourselves on our reputation for providing clear advice, in plain language, to help you understand the legal position and the options available for resolving the dispute. Most importantly, we want to understand your aims and objectives and find the right strategy to achieve the best possible outcome - so that you can get back to normal as soon as possible.

We will put forward your case in the strongest possible way and, wherever possible, we use the art of persuasion to encourage settlement. As a result, we are able to resolve many of the disputes we deal with without ever going to court. If, however, settlement is not possible, we are vastly experienced in all types of formal legal action. We use that strength to fight your corner to get the best result for you.

We can also draw on the legal expertise of colleagues in specialist areas of law, which sometimes overlap. This provides our Dispute Resolution team with an even greater ability to handle all types of disputes and enables Verisona Law to provide all manner of private legal services to fit the needs of you and your family.
