It is unfortunate that some of our clients have found themselves in the situation where they either

need to defend themselves from civil litigation, or take legal action against someone.

At Seatons, we aim to resolve these disputes as smoothly as possible and provide clear, pragmatic solutions legal at low sensible fees.

Mediation

Mediation is a very effective way to resolve disputes without the need to go to court. The process involves an independent third party, known as a mediator, to help both sides reach an agreement. The process is treated with strict confidentiality and the decision-making rests solely with the participants involved.

Mediation is a voluntary process and will only take place if both parties agree. It is important to note however that Courts are increasingly expecting parties to have attempted mediation at some point in the past before issuing Court proceedings.

Court Action

Court action is advisable if, having explored alternative options, you are still unable to settle the matter. Due to the high-risk nature of this approach, it is important that such an option is only ever used as a last resort.

You should be aware that, unlike mediation, Court proceedings potentially take months to complete with no guarantee of success. For this reason, it is vital that professional legal advice is sought before pursuing this path. At Seatons, we can assess your case to advise whether Court action is an appropriate and effective solution to go down. For more information, feel free to give us a call on 01536 276300.
