Acting for both individuals & companies to minimise the impact of disputes.

Litigation Services

Dootsons litigation department provides sensible and practical advice for both businesses and individuals who become involved in disputes.

We believe that taking early advice before a dispute escalates can often nip a problem in the bud, minimising its impact on you or your business. If litigation through the courts is necessary, it is important to take the correct steps to give you the best chance of a successful outcome and to also consider the alternatives to running the matter to trial.

In today’s economy, we also understand the importance of litigation being carried out at a proportionate cost.

Our Litigation Department provides expert litigation advice from specialists with years of hands on experience.

What is Litigation Law

Disputes can arise in many different ways and over many different issues. When a dispute arises which requires resolution, litigation is sometimes needed to achieve that resolution, whether through the courts or negotiated settlement
