Civil Litigation


Civil and commercial litigation describes the process whereby corporate, private and public legal disputes are settled through negotiation, alternative dispute resolution, or use of the Courts. Most of these disputes relate to financial compensation but others may require a party to take a specific action or refrain from a specific action. Civil and commercial litigation therefore involves a very wide spectrum of disputes. At Oakfield Solicitors our aim is to swiftly understand the issues and provide practical and workable advice to resolve the dispute before matters become escalated. We will advise on the probability of success as well as the risks involved. Should an early settlement not be possible we will manage the dispute in an efficient, timely and dedicated matter whilst always informing you of the estimated costs and legal procedures at each stage. We will use our experience to adopt a variety of strategies to successfully resolve any civil dispute.  In appropriate cases, we may suggest the use of alternative dispute resolution, mediation or arbitration. We have considerable experience of dealing with a wide range of civil and commercial litigation matters.
