Court claims and applications
In situations when court litigation is the right course of action, we have the experience and depth of knowledge to manage your dispute and will fight your case vigorously.
In almost all legal disputes, tactics, strategy and negotiation skills are as important to the outcome as the underlying law and evidence. Having an experienced, tactically astute litigation lawyer on your side is essential to creating the right conditions to settle the claim out of court. This is in many cases the best available solution bearing in mind the inherent risk, high cost and uncertainty of almost all disputes.
Tactical use of court procedures which can secure a major advantage in the dispute or bring the dispute to an early conclusion include :
- applying for an injunction or defending an injunction
- applying for a default judgment
- enforcing judgments including charging orders
- setting aside a judgment
- joining in additional parties to the dispute
- strike out applications
Out litigation lawyers can advise on the advantages, suitability and risks of all of the above and other aspects of securing the best outcome.
