Dispute Resolution Solicitors on the Isle of Wight


Whether you are a consumer, employee, tenant or property owner you have a contractual involvement which can, in turn, lead to a legal dispute, whether you want it to or not.

 As such, it is important to be aware of your rights and responsibilities outlined in the contract, as well as any potential legal remedies available to you in the event of a dispute. Seeking legal advice from a specialist dispute resolution solicitor can help you navigate the complexities of contractual disputes and ensure that your interests are protected. Remember, it is always better to address issues promptly and professionally to avoid escalating the situation further.

What Is A Dispute Resolution Solicitor?

A dispute resolution solicitor is a specialist legal professional who provides advice and practical assistance in resolving disputes that may arise in various areas of law.

In the event that a dispute arises, a dispute resolution solicitor can analyse the situation and offer guidance on the best course of action. They can assist with negotiation, mediation, and arbitration to help clients resolve their disputes in a practical and efficient manner. By using alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation, disputes can often be resolved without the need for lengthy and costly legal proceedings.

Whether it's a business dispute resolution involving commercial property or commercial litigation, a dispute resolution solicitor can provide the necessary legal advice and assistance to resolve the issue.

What Are The 3 Methods Of Dispute Resolution?

When it comes to resolving disputes, three primary methods are widely recognised for their effectiveness in reaching a resolution. The first method is negotiation, a direct dialogue between the parties involved to settle the dispute amicably without third-party intervention. It's often the first step due to its simplicity and directness.

Should negotiation fail, mediation is the second method, involving a neutral third party who helps the disputing parties find a mutually acceptable solution. Unlike arbitrators or judges, mediators do not impose a decision but facilitate communication to help reach a resolution.

Finally, if mediation proves unsuccessful, arbitration or litigation can be the next step. Arbitration involves a neutral arbitrator making a decision after hearing both sides, while litigation brings the dispute to court, where a judge or jury makes a final decision. Our dispute resolution solicitors will advise clients on which route to take based on the circumstances of their case, expertise, and the likelihood of achieving a favourable outcome.
