Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Warners has a team of experienced litigation and dispute resolution solicitors based in our Tonbridge and Sevenoaks offices who are able to advise on all aspects of civil and commercial litigation. We can pursue or defend claims for damages. We will discuss the merits of the case with you at an early stage and advise you on your best course of action using clear and simple language.
We have extensive experience of pursuing or defending claims to a final hearing in the County Court, High Court and Court of Appeal. Our litigation solicitors always seek to resolve matters as quickly and efficiently as possible helping you through each step of the process. Where appropriate we consider mediation or other forms of dispute resolution in order to seek to achieve an early compromise acceptable to you. Our dispute resolution solicitors have an excellent record of achieving settlement by this route.
