Dispute Resolution (Personal)

Resolving Personal Disputes

At some point in our lives many of us will end up in a hard-to-resolve dispute with someone – whether it is with an employer, a neighbour, a tenant or someone we are doing business with. Our Dispute Resolution team will help you to resolve that dispute either by negotiation or, if necessary, court action.

The Dispute Resolution Process

The process that you go through to resolve a dispute can be daunting and stressful to navigate. A dispute by its very nature involves conflict. Our team offer a tailored, tactical and personal service using their expertise and knowledge to ensure that your dispute settles with the best outcome for you. The map below illustrates the possible route you might take.

We can help with the following:

Wills, trusts and inheritance disputes

We can advise and assist you in relation to disputes which may arise following the death of a family member or in relation to the administration of an estate. We can also advise in relation to claims for financial provision from an estate under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 and in relation to the removal of executors/personal representatives and trustees from their positions should issues arise.

I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to both Helen Townsend and Justine Leppert. Thank you Helen and Justine you have no idea how you helped us in very dark times.

Hunt & Coombs have been my solicitors for over 20 years. I have every confidence in their advice and services.

Very professional service, reliable and clear to clients in all aspects during and after the case had been dealt with. Much obliged.

Very reliable, efficient, pleasure to deal with on consistent basis... I have never had any complaints about manner or otherwise and have highly recommended the firm to family / friends over the years based on my experiences with Hunt & Coombs.

They consistently deliver in terms of customer service, knowledge, and most importantly winning claims/cases for our company.

Happy old customer.

Excellent service at all times - very professional. Thanks to all members of the team.

Recommended by a friend. During Xmas holidays, Hunt & Coombs were open for a few days. We got the appointment straight away with the solicitor. Our matter was handled efficiently.
