Dispute Resolution

Our highly regarded team, consistently acknowledged as such by Chambers UK and The Legal 500, has substantial experience in working collaboratively with our clients to devise tailor-made strategies to avoid possible disputes and to effectively resolve those that do occur.

We deal with a broad cross-section of cases with a diversity of subject matter from complex, high value wills and estate disputes and challenging public authority decision-making by way of judicial review (doleance), to breach of contract cases and mediating to resolve long-running, intractable cases.

Whilst we have a strong record of success in the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques such as mediation, we have also represented personal clients in a variety of tribunals and public hearings and inquiries (including, but not limited to, representation at Coronial Inquests and Town and Country Planning Appeals) and at all levels in the Isle of Man Courts, up to and including the Privy Council.

Able to draw upon our considerable experience, we have a proven and recognised record of providing reliable, commercially driven advice and delivering all round good quality and effective service.
