Litigation

Being involved in a dispute that affects you personally can be tough. For the very reason that it has an impact on your home life, your immediate environment, or people with whom you have previously had a good relationship. You need lawyers you can trust, who will act quickly and understand the impact and costs of litigation both financially and emotionally.

Disputes can be stressful and sometimes costly. Our expert solicitors understand this and will support you with advice, outlining your options at the very first meeting and help you to balance the risks against the potential rewards. We will answer the questions most clients are anxious to have answered:

  • Will I win?
  • How long will the process take?
  • How much will it cost?

What our clients say

  • Dear Scott,

    I just wanted to write to you to say thank you for the fantastic service that you and your team have provided so far with HR Assist. I think the product is fantastic and couldn’t be without it.
    I didn’t think that Owl Projects needed a service like HR Assist, until I had cause to call you for advice on an employment law matter. It was that conversation that triggered my interest in taking up HR Assist and I am so glad we did! I didn’t realise how exposed we were to having a claim made against us. I now have peace of mind knowing that all of our HR needs are taken care of and that all of our contracts, handbooks, documents and processes are kept up to date by specialist solicitors.

    I would heavily recommend Poole Alcock and HR Assist to any business. It’s scary how quickly the law changes and things become out of date. I didn’t understand how massive the area of HR is. I don’t have to worry about that anymore.

    Thanks again!

    Miss Alison Kershaw – Contracts Manager, Owl Projects
  • To Vicky,

    Thank you for all the hard work you have done for me.

     

    Mrs D
  • “Thank you Andrew thanks for all your hard work and the team we really appreciate it.”

    Mrs. C
  • Thanks James, I wish you the best of luck in the next stage of your training. The service that you have provided has been excellent and far superior to other solicitors that I have used it the past. Should you require any supporting evidence for your portfolio I would be happy to write a more detailed account of this.

    Mr L
  • Hi Tim,

    This is just a quick note to thank you very much for all your help on Friday 16th at Crewe Magistrates Court.

    You understood my exact situation perfectly and communicated this very effectively to the court. You were a great comfort to me in unfamiliar circumstances.

    Thank you very much again and you are correct – things are looking up once more!

    Mr. C Miller
  • Special thanks to Sarah Jarrett and Scott Harding from Poole Alcock who provided us with legal assistance for a management buyout and HR assistance for our business.  We have been delighted with the levels of service, advice, friendliness and positive approach from Sarah and Scott, as well as all the support staff at Poole Alcock.  All aspects were dealt with in a personable but meticulous and professional manner with plain English explanations which was very much appreciated.  We would highly recommend Poole Alcock Solicitors to other businesses and individuals that are considering instructing legal services.  Thanks again for all your help and continued support.

    Martin Jones – Director, Practicon Limited.
  • “I just wanted to say thank you. As frustrating as this whole thing was for me, on the occasions when I could have and would have felt very vulnerable and way out of my comfort zone, you brought the situation back to being very relaxed and “human”. I really appreciate that, I doubt I could have had that experience on a court day with many solicitors, and I honestly left the court hearing on both occasions pleased it was you at my side. Thanks Amie, I’ll be back in touch if I need to, but for now I hope all is good with you.”

    SG, Cheshire
  • The unexpected experience of a H&S Executive prosecution was facing my company and this proved to extend over a period of several months because of the slow process. I instructed Poole Alcock to handle the matter on behalf of the company and I found Dan Brooks, the Partner who heads up Criminal Litigation, to be extremely supportive and responsive from initial enquiry and instruction through to the hearing and thereafter. The process did prove to be stressful but Poole Alcock walked us through each stage and ensured that it went as smoothly as possible. I was specifically grateful for Dan’s advice on the day of the trial. Their advice proved to be accurate and their recommendations were offered sympathetically and in a measured way.

    I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the services of Poole Alcock to any company facing similar circumstances.

    Mr P – Director of leading Cheshire building company
  • Thank you for your hard work in reaching a settlement in the claim following the death of my late husband. The final sum far exceeded what I’d imagined it would be.

    Again my thanks.

    Mr E L
  • “I cannot praise Poole Alcock highly enough for the work they have completed for us. The Academy conversion has gone extremely smoothly largely because of the excellent service we received from Sarah Jarrett who handled our conversion. Sarah kept us informed every step of the way; dealing with the Local Authority and the Department for Education. Headteachers rarely go through this process twice so it was hugely comforting to have the support of such an experienced and competent legal partner.”

  • Our relationship with Poole Alcock is an important one to St Luke’s Hospice for a few different reasons. For one Poole Alcock and staff have been supportive of St Luke’s as a local charity. Great efforts have been made both Corporately and by the team at Poole Alcock to raise much needed funds for us to care for the people of Mid and South Cheshire.Just as important to us is the support we have received professionally. We have used Poole Alcock’s legal services to minimise our risk and to help grow our business arm. The staff we have dealt with have been fantastic. We have always been dealt with courteously, professionally and with respect, and an understanding that the law can be complex for non-professionals to understand.This professionalism is underpinned by excellent knowledge and coupled together we are left feeling both supported and secure as an organisation….which means we can get on with what we are really here for, supporting and caring for our patients and their families.

  • I would just like to personally drop you a line to thank you for your considerable personal and professional effort today, I am well aware that its your job, however when I spoke to Scott before he assured me without reservation that you were the man for the job, he was absolutely correct, I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who may be in as an unfortunate situation that we were today.

    Mr F. – Cheshire
  • Super fast and helpful! Gill was great and got us in the property before X-Mas which was amazing, how she managed to do this in 3-4 weeks is beyond me…. absolutely outstanding! highly recommended!!

    Mrs A F
  • To Stacey & Lisa,

    May we take this opportunity to thank you both very much for all the hard work you have done to help us with our house move.
    We know it’s not been easy a times but we made it in the end.
    Kind regards,

    M&J
  • I would like to thank you for the service that you and the team at Poole Alcock continue to provide to me and my clients. I recommended your HR Assist service to a long standing large client, over twelve months ago and they have been very impressed with the service and have renewed for their second year.

    There are many HR/Employment law providers in the market place. The HR Assist product is very competitively priced and the service and advice from the employment law solicitors is of the highest standard.

    I would not hesitate in continuing to recommend you and your team to friends, family and clients in the future.

    Paul Edwards – Director of Afford Bond
  • Andrew,

    On behalf of myself and family, we would like to thank you, and everyone concerned, for the successful conclusion of our claim. It was a long road that seemed to have no end, but you never gave up, so to you Andrew and everyone at Poole Alcock LLP, we wish you all the best in the future and may the company prosper in the coming years as it surely deserves to for your dedication to your client.
