Disputes arise in business. They are an unfortunate part of the normal business cycle.

But with the right team supporting you, disputes needn’t be time consuming, stressful and expensive to resolve. Our team at Francis Wilks & Jones has been helping business successfully resolve disputes since 2002.

Early settlement is always our focus

Whether you are a claimant or defendant, our mission is to help settle your claim on the best terms possible and as quickly as possible. Our aim is to free up our clients to get on with their business goals, free from the pressure of threatened litigation.

How our dispute resolution team can help you

Our dispute resolution team can help you with the following

1. Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution is designed to help clients settle claims without the need for formal court proceedings.   It includes without prejudice discussions, mediation, arbitration, expert determination and early neutral evaluation.  We have been helping our clients settle claims using ADR since 2002. If there is a way to resolve your claim outside of formal court proceedings – we will help you find it.

2. Commercial litigation

Commercial litigation and formal court proceedings cannot always be avoided. But even when a legal claim is issued in court, there are ways to bring it to a successful conclusion without the need for a full trial.  Our brilliant team has decades’ experience acting for Claimants and Defendants in a wide range of litigation claims.  No matter what stage you are at of your claim you are at, we have the team to help.
