Litigation

Civil Litigation involves disputes between individuals or companies and can involve substantial sums of money. In certain circumstances litigation requires the assistance of the Courts to resolve the dispute in question.

At Highfin Solicitors, we have an experienced Litigation team that provides the highest quality ser-vice to both individuals and organisations on a private fee-paying basis.

Due to the complexities entailed with Civil Litigation, it is essential that you receive expert legal advice at your earliest convenience in order to build the strongest possible case.

Here at Highfin we prefer to encourage clients and opponents to settle their differences rather than prolong disputes. This is not always an easy task, but we try. We firmly believe in alternative dispute resolution, for example, mediation. We are prepared to act more dominantly when the circumstances require.

Our fee structure is entirely transparent and flexible. We are also prepared to fix our fees for certain stages of a case or for a specific one-off piece of work.

We have experience of running cases in the County Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber)

  • Interim and terminal dilapidations claims
  • Service of break notices
  • Forfeiture of leases by peaceable re-entry or Court proceedings and dealing with applications for relief from forfeiture
  • Easements
