What is dispute resolution?

Dispute resolution is the process of resolving a civil dispute between parties. This could be from unfulfilled contract terms, breach of fiduciary duties, a disputed will or claims of professional negligence.

We advise on urgent matters and can help with most civil disputes including:

Contract Disputes

Debt Recovery

Data Protection, GDPR and Privacy Claims

Professional Negligence

We help you to find the best way to resolve your dispute. This may be through negotiation, mediation, arbitration. For more info click here.

Examples of dispute resolution cases we have worked on

Contentious Probate –

Our client sought to challenge a Will executed very close to the death of his late mother, despite the close relationship and the normal expectations the Will made no provision for him. Surprisingly the clients’ sibling had been left the entirety of the residual estate. Pre-action letters were immediately served seeking to contest the validity of the Will.

The outcome

The clients’ sibling very quickly and without the need for any formal action, negotiated ‘acceptable terms’ with our client.

 

A Halakah outcome.

Our Joint clients sought our assistance on a longstanding contract dispute.

Our clients were both observant Jews (and former close friends), sought to resolve their dispute relating to the formation and share ownership of their joint electric car start-up company.

Their aim was to informally find a Halakah solution, using the flexibility afforded to solving such modern problems not explicitly found in the Torah but at all costs to avoid publicity and any threats of civil litigation.

Following the joint review of the documents bundle, the process was treated as a form of alternative mediation, using halakhic inquiry methods with reference to relevant scripture and tradition which lasted several hours.

The outcome

Both parties eventually reached a mutually acceptable division of the company assets with a balanced financial compromise and so ended the dispute, parting on significantly friendlier terms then when they had arrived.

 

   

Data Protection compliance 

 

Data Protection & Privacy Law

Service overview:

Personal data is information held about living individuals (data subjects) who can be identified from that data or a combination of data.

There is additional protection for ‘sensitive’ personal data which can include information about racial or ethnic origin, physical and mental health etc.

The control and processing of personal data is regulated currently by the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Brexit: The Data Protection Act will mirror the GDPR for when the UK leaves the EU.

Data controllers need to notify the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) annually before processing personal data. Breaching the Data Protection Act is a criminal offence for which individuals can also be liable
