Ross Williams offers a comprehensive service to clients who have opted to go to court themselves or are faced with court action.
We can advise you regarding disputes in the following areas:
- Land law and trusts
- Wills and Probate
- Business and partnership
- Company and commercial
- Contractual matters
We encourage our clients to consider alternative dispute resolution – for example, through mediation before or during the court process.
Common examples of a contractual relationship are:
- Partnership or joint venture agreements
- Agency agreements
- Distribution agreements
- Construction projects
- Loan agreements
Whether you are bringing a case or defending it, we will advise you on your position and on the best course of action. The latter could be a matter of a simple letter from us or a method such as alternative dispute resolution. We will work with you to agree timescales and keep the costs/benefit analysis of the whole process under constant review.
Under the law, an unmarried partner of someone who dies intestate has no automatic right to that person’s estate. The same applies to a same sex partnership where the parties are co-habiting without the benefit of a Civil Partnership. Nevertheless, such partners may wish to pursue a claim for an entitlement to the deceased’s estate. A dependant can also make a claim against a deceased’s estate.
If you are a beneficiary of a will, we can advise you as to your rights and help you to achieve a just resolution. If the only way forward is to initiate court proceedings, however, we will act for you.
There can be a number of disputes between property owners. Such disputes can include:
- Where a landowner takes or defends proceedings relating to the extent of his/her boundary or rights over his/her adjoining property
- Where one joint owner of a property requires the property to be sold and the other owner refuses to sell
Litigation can be expensive and so we will always give you the best costs information from the outset. We offer fixed fee consultations together with fixed quotes for certain areas of work. Payment options include payment by regular standing order, debit or credit card.
