Civil litigation Solicitors

Our experienced team of Leeds civil litigation solicitors covers a comprehensive range of County Court and High Court claims and defences.

We represent individuals, companies, partnerships, sole traders and other organisations.

We aim to offer a prompt, efficient and practical service and are flexible enough to adapt what we do to the needs of each individual client. We are comfortable with County Court and High Court proceedings, but also recognise that civil litigation is expensive and the outcome may be uncertain. While we will fight your corner vigorously in court if appropriate, we realise that there are often more creative and less expensive ways of resolving commercial disputes.

We work closely with our clients in working out what they want to achieve through instructing us, and adopt a strategy to suit each individual client.

We are able to assist and advise in the following Dispute Resolution areas:

1. Commercial Disputes 

  • Contract Disputes
  • Shareholder and Director Disputes
  • Partnership Disputes
  • Trust Related Disputes

2. Commercial Fraud

3. Commercial Property Litigation (not residential or agricultural)

  • Commercial Landlord and Tenant
  • Land related Disputes
  • Restricted Covenants
  • Development Disputes

4. Civil Litigation
