Dispute resolution

Sometimes in life there are certain instances that can’t be resolved or reconciled without some form of legal intervention.

In these circumstances it is key that you speak to legal experts you can trust. At Tayntons we explore the processes of mediation, negotiation (together known as Alternative Dispute Resolution) and litigation. Court proceedings are used as a last resort and we do what we can to get an outcome that is in the interest of everyone involved.

Our dispute resolution team understand that for most people, confrontation is very stressful, particularly when considering the potential costs of taking legal action. Our goal is to help you find a proportionate, cost-effective resolution as swiftly as possible.

Our expertise spans all areas of law, including property and land disputes, wills & probate disputes, commercial disputes and contract disputes

Based in Gloucester, we are easily accessible to people across the county of Gloucestershire and beyond, with many of our clients coming from Cheltenham, the Forest of Dean and the surrounding areas.

Our dispute resolution solicitors’ expertise

We are able to help in the following areas:

  • Consumer contract disputes
  • Land and property disputes
  • Wills and probate disputes
  • Personal injury disputes
  • Professional negligence disputes
  • Employment law disputes

Land and property disputes

We regularly handle all types of land and property disputes, from noisy neighbours to claims against trespassers and squatters. Where your home and property is concerned, it is understandable to feel angry and frustrated when your rights are threatened. Our dispute resolution team have a strong reputation for helping individuals work out these issues without having to go to court, saving you time, costs and unnecessary stress in the long run.

Wills and probate disputes

The death of a loved one is one of the hardest experiences a person can go through. So, when a dispute arises, it is easy for emotions to spiral out of control, sometimes leading to lengthy and costly litigation. During such a difficult time, the advice and skills of a legal specialist is essential.

Our sympathetic yet practical contentious probate team can assist with all types of Will and probate disputes, including:

  • Disputes over inheritance
  • Challenges to the validity of a Will
  • Disputes over probate and estate administration

Personal injury disputes

If you have sustained an injury due to the negligence of someone else and they do not want to accept liability, we can help you make a personal injury claim for the compensation you need to restore your quality of life and move on. Our expertise includes all types of personal injury claim, including workplace accidents; road traffic accidents; slips, trips and falls; product liability claims; medical negligence claims; and many more.

Professional negligence disputes

When a professional such as an accountant, tax advisor or solicitor provides you a service, you are entitled to expect a certain level of skill and competence. So, if a professional lets you down and you suffer a loss as a result, you may be entitled to make a claim for professional negligence compensation.

We can provide expert advice about these sorts of claims as well as helping you navigate any disputes that arise out of the proceedings.

Employment law disputes

Problems at work can have a profound effect on your personal wellbeing and self-esteem as well as putting your livelihood at risk. If you are involved in a dispute with your employer – such as a redundancy dispute, discrimination claim or pay dispute – we can provide expert advice and help you find a positive resolution.
