We’re Here To Help When You Have A Civil Dispute

Civil Dispute Solicitors

At Routh Clarke we understand that disputes and disagreements with other people and companies, can be extremely stressful. When you are no longer able to deal with it yourself or when the other party decides to take legal action, you need a skilled communicator, negotiator and litigator to act for you. We have helped many people to resolve their commercial or personal disputes, using the most appropriate dispute resolution method, such as mediation, negotiated settlement or if necessary court proceedings. We know the financial side of civil litigation scares many people, so we always keep this in mind and endeavour to reduce the financial risk by being transparent on costs and trying to minimise them, finding the optimum funding method, such as a conditional fee agreement, whilst giving you a high level of service.
