Full support for your personal and business claims and disputes

If you find yourself in the middle of a dispute it can be very distressing. It’s best to seek legal advice as soon as possible to try and resolve the conflict before it escalates.

Personal claims and dispute resolution is often complex and sensitive. Disputes can arise from many different circumstances, including in employment, personal relationships, with neighbours, businesses and so much more. It’s better and less expensive to try to settle a personal claim or dispute through mediation rather than going to court. However, if the situation arises that your dispute cannot be settled through mediation, we can give full support to see your personal claim and dispute through to court proceedings.

Our Bowcock & Pursaill Personal Claims and Disputes solicitors will assist you with your dispute resolution in a sympathetic and understanding manner.

We have a sterling reputation for supporting our clients through these difficult periods and have worked with clients to resolve disputes for more than 90 years. We are compassionate and act in your best interest at all times.

We offer advice about a range of options which are well-timed and affordable.

As litigation solicitors in Staffordshire, we also specialise in commercial and property disputes and act for all types and sizes of business throughout Staffordshire and the rest of the country.

We offer advice on action to take in the early stages of any type of dispute to avoid costly legal proceedings which can include mediation as an alternative resolution.

At the outset we will explore funding and insurance arrangements to enable you to pursue or defend your claim through the courts. Where appropriate we will take steps to protect your interests via an application to the court for an injunction.
