Legal Advice for Dispute Resolution

Our litigation team can advise and represent you in relation to a wide range of legal disputes, including:

Family Law

Providing legal and representation for your family, your finances, and your relationships.

Covering all aspects of family law including Prenuptial, Divorce, Cohabitation, Separation and Children matters

Land Disputes

Problems with property come about in many different ways.

While boundary disputes can be connected to other problems with your neighbours, they are a standalone issue in their own right. We use our decades of experience to help find the best solution for you and your property.

Personal Injury / Accident Claims

Unlike some other law firms, we don’t see people’s pain and suffering as an opportunity to make money.

However, if you have experienced an injury in an accident, there are cases where it’s appropriate to pursue legal action. We will happily advise you in such circumstances and consider whether it might be in appropriate and in your best interest to represent you under a Conditional Fee Agreement (sometimes better known to people as 'no-win, no-fee').

Wills, Inheritance and Trust Disputes

If there is a dispute over a Will or Trust, it can make the loss of a loved one even harder to bear.

We’re here to walk you through any issues that might arise, from contesting a Will or making a Claim under the Inheritance Act to dealing with professional negligence of a Will-Writer or removing a Trustee.

Negligence/Tort

A Tort is an act of injury or damage to a person or property. That act might be either intentional or negligent.

If someone is negligent, they have failed to do something which they ought to do or they had a duty to do. If you have been injured or your property has been damaged and you believe that someone is directly to blame for causing that injury or damage, our team will be able to advise you as to whether you might have a claim to enable you to put things right and the best way to go about it.

Professional Negligence

If you find yourself on the receiving end of professional negligence, you might feel overwhelmed by the David and Goliath nature of your situation.

From architects to financial advisers and, yes, even solicitors, sometimes professionals make mistakes. It’s our job to act on your behalf to take on the individual or organisation who has failed you to go some way to redressing the balance.

Business Disputes Legal Advice

Business disputes can be time-consuming and costly, so having professional legal advice is crucial for expediency.

Our solicitors can help with landlord and tenant disputes, breach of contract, arbitration, litigation and debt recovery. We also have a wealth of experience helping clients avoid or resolve company or partnership disputes through mediation and alternative dispute resolution strategies.

Contractual Disputes and Claims

If you’re used to dealing with commercial contracts, chances are you will have faced a contractual dispute at some point

For those less familiar in this area, being on either side of a legal disagreement can be intimidating. Whether it’s a contract for goods and services, a loan agreement, a warranty claim, corporate transaction, or other business arrangement, we have the expertise to help resolve your dispute or claim.

Debt Recovery

Unpaid invoices are frustrating for any business, and recovering them can be fruitless, especially without legal intervention.

The process of collecting a business debt typically involves four main stages: a letter before action, issuing legal proceedings, obtaining a County Court Judgment, and commencing enforcement action. No matter what stage you’re at, Seldons offers a cost-effective approach to obtaining and enforcing judgment.

Consumer Issues Legal Advice

The Consumer Rights Act 2015 is there to protect you as a customer against unfair selling practices.

Whether you’re buying goods, digital content, or services, they should be fit for purpose, as describe and of a satisfactory quality. Taking on businesses and large corporations can be daunting, but if you buy something defective or have experienced an inadequate service, we can provide legal advice on how to best deal with it.

Employment Law

We are able to advise employers and employees across a wide range of issues, including disciplinary, discriminatory and redundancy disputes, Employment Tribunals and Settlement Agreements, Contract Issues and Restrictive Covenants.

This can be a legal trap for the unwary. We can advise right from drafting the contract of employment through disciplinary, grievance and other HR issues to how to end the contract. Our advice is driven by your commercial imperatives.
