Litigation – A Stress Purchase

30th October 2017

News : Litigation

Nobody likes entering into disputes or into litigation. Our experienced litigators at Poole Alcock LLP are here to support you through every step of your dispute, whatever the subject matter and whoever you may be.

Listening to you

Achieving our clients’ objectives is absolutely key. We want to do a good job for you. In order to do that, we sit down with our clients to understand what makes you tick as well as what the real issues are in the dispute. More often than not, personal feelings will play a part in how you are thinking. One of our jobs is to strip back the real issues and advise you on how best to proceed. We note your own objectives in the matter as well as the legal framework surrounding it.

Commercially aware

For our business clients it is important to understand how the litigation will affect your business. This may be in relation to legal costs or in relation to the amount of time that directors may spend in providing us with instruction. Whilst most cases will involve a certain amount of time liaising with Solicitors, we aim to understand the issues quickly and in order to be able to progress the matter “behind the scenes”, only asking for instructions as may be absolutely necessary. We never go beyond what you ask us to do without consultation with you first. Being able to take some of the stress away from every day business is something that we aim to do. Your time is much better spent dealing with your own business than the litigation that you may have bubbling in the background.

Stressful and time consuming

For our personal clients, we understand that litigation can be incredibly stressful and time consuming. It is important that we understand you as well as the issues surrounding your case. This will help to put you at ease and reassure you that we are acting in your best interests. Our aim is to reduce the amount of time you will need to spend thinking about this case and to try and allow you to have that decent night’s sleep once again.

Litigation Costs

We are acutely aware that costs are always a major concern for anyone entering into litigation. Naturally, litigation can be a very expensive process. We will always work to keep those costs to a minimum for you where we can. Furthermore, we will look to consider alternative funding methods such as whether you already have insurance to cover the legal fees or whether an appropriate insurance policy can be purchased at a later stage in order to take some of that worry away from you. We will keep you fully abreast of all costs from the very beginning and provide you with regular updates. We are transparent when it comes to costs. We will always be happy to discuss any queries or concerns you may have in relation to how much your litigation may cost.

Going to Court

When people talk about litigation, they naturally think about going to Court. Court is an absolute last resort in almost all circumstances. By instructing a Solicitor at an early stage, we will look to assist you in resolving the dispute without having to knock on the Court’s door. This may be a simple exchange of correspondence or may involve some form of face to face meeting. It may even be more formal, such as mediation with a third party mediator, to try and bring a resolution.


Rest assured, whatever your case may hold we will work with you to support you. We will seek a suitable resolution as swiftly as possible. You can visit our Litigation services page here or complete the form linked here and we will call you back.
