Disputes are not pleasant. When two parties have a disagreement, it can often result in damaging behaviour and allegations. No one enjoys falling out but sadly, it happens. At Burn & Co, we work with you to find the best outcome - a resolution that avoids undue unpleasantness, unnecessary costs and prolonged anxiety and worry.

Disputes can arise for any number of reasons. You may have a boundary dispute with your new neighbour; a disagreement with family members over the terms of a Will or perhaps it is the quality of workmanship carried out on your property by a builder. Whatever the reason, you want to trust your solicitor to achieve the best possible result for you.

Disputes are often seen as expensive and lengthy. At the outset, we advise you on what the costs may be of pursuing your matter. We promise to keep you updated on costs throughout so that there are no nasty surprises when your dispute is resolved. Our lawyers will negotiate on your behalf and try and resolve your disagreement as promptly as we can.

We may also be able to mediate with the other side. Mediation is a formal process which can often reach a speedier conclusion and may avoid taking matters to court. Your lawyer will discuss the best approach with you and you can then decide which approach is best for you.

Once we know what your dispute is, our aim is a quick and successful resolution for you.

Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution

No one enjoys a dispute. They are damaging, can be costly and time consuming. Mediation is a form of ‘Alternative Dispute Resolution’ or ADR and is a different way of resolving a dispute.

Any dispute can be stressful and time consuming. Lengthy and expensive litigation may appear to be the only solution. Often, the time and legal expense this demands can prevent a successful resolution. An alternative way to resolve your dispute is through mediation.

Mediation is an alternative and very successful way to resolve disputes. Burn & Co’s’ experts will explain in simple terms what mediation is, and how it differs from litigation. We ensure you understand the process, and how any agreement is reached. Mediation can be quicker and less costly than litigation. We promise that you know the timescales involved, and likely costs of mediation.

To help you resolve your dispute in a different way, contact Burn & Co.
