HOW CAN WE ASSIST?

Property, landlord, and tenancy disputes

Nobody wants a dispute, especially with your property, neighbour or tenant. Unfortunately, it is sometimes inevitable that issues arise. When it does happens you need a lawyer who can help you win your case, or resolve them to your advantage.

Our team has experience advising all sorts of clients on all sorts of Jersey property related disputes. Between them, there’s not much they haven’t done before. Whatever the nature of your property dispute, we can help.

Debt collection

Recovering unpaid debts are an essential part of maintaining effective credit control for Jersey individuals, businesses and organisations.

To recover debts in a cost effective way, you will need the assistance of an expert qualified Jersey lawyer who can help guide you through the debt recovery process.  We can assist in the recovery of debts with a dedicated fixed fee recovery procedure.
 
We offer fixed fees for our debt collection services.

Contentious trust and probate disputes

Trust and probate disputes often involve a personal element and emotions can run high. We know how difficult these matters can be and have developed a sympathetic approach to dealing with disputes in this specialist area. When litigation becomes unavoidable, we will always try to resolve matters as quickly and as cost efficiently as possible.

We are experienced in dealing with all types of contentious matters relating to  trusts, disputed wills and estates. However complicated your situation may be, we’ll have usually dealt with similar matters in the past, and so we can bring this experience to bear to guide you through the difficulties.

We are able to act for any party – whether individual beneficiary, trustee, executor – in trust disputes we tend to act for beneficiaries and as such it is unlikely that we will be conflicted in acting against trust companies in Jersey.

Commercial disputes

Whether you run a smaller private business or work in a larger organisation, commercial issues and disputes do arise, that affect you and your business – and they can come from any angle,  be it a breach of contract claim, a professional negligence or insurance claim, or a fraud allegation.

We understand that such disputes have a negative impact and can seriously disrupt a business.  It is therefore imperative to resolve such disputes as speedily, favourably and cost-effectively as possible

Having represented all sides in disputes, we can bring to each new case an expert knowledge of the law and an understanding of an opposition’s perspectives and strategies. Whatever the nature of your commercial dispute, we can help.

Partnership, shareholder and boardroom disputes

When individuals fall out in business, it can have negative and potentially devastating consequences for the company or partnership involved. It’s imperative to resolve such disputes as quickly, favourably and as cost-effectively as possible.

We understand that dispute resolution does not necessarily mean litigation, so where appropriate, we will advise and guide you through arbitration, mediation and round table settlement discussions. If litigation is necessary however, we’ll always try to resolve matters as quickly and as cost efficiently as possible.
