Civil Disputes

When it comes to personal or commercial disputes, whatever the case matter and value, swift effective mediation should always be the first port of call, helping to avoid costly court fees and unnecessary delays in resolving issues.

At Taylor Rose TTKW we are conscious that our clients require a pragmatic tailored approach to their disputes, an approach that places the client needs as a priority, whilst providing practical advice and affordable solutions in a time effective manner.

As experienced experts in mediation, our team is well acquainted with negotiation and mediation techniques that aid the achievement of successful outcomes without the need for court action, by the use of binding and enforceable agreements.

For more information on how we can help you please see our guides or contact our litigation team for a detailed discussion of your needs on 01733 333 333. 

When communication has broken down between parties it can make resolving a contentious issue an even more difficult and daunting task.

The first step to settling an issue is to seek effective mediation from legal experts, who are experienced in the forming of relationships and have the legal knowledge to represent a third party or mediate on their behalf successfully.

Our team have a great deal of experience in a variety of dispute matters and can assist with the following;

  • Contract disputes
  • Landlord and tenant litigation
  • Property litigation
  • Professional negligence
  • Debt collection and advice
  • Mediation
  • Inheritance claims
  • Contentious probate
  • Defamation, libel or slander
  • Partnership disputes

Mediation is a process which is encouraged by the courts before making a claim, it involves all parties involved in a dispute sitting down and discussing potential solutions with an independent and neutral mediator, which helps the parties achieve a course of action and a binding agreement which all parties must uphold.

There is now an expectation from the courts that the legal teams representing the parties involved in the dispute will attempt mediation first before approaching court action, to avoid large court fees and uncertain outcomes.

The amount of time spent mediating will largely depend on the complexity of the issue and the individual parties involved, usually this can range from one day to three or four.

At Taylor Rose TTKW we provide a unique forum for mediation and can advise and assist you in the settlement of a variety of difficulties.

Mortgage Fraud
Mortgage Fraud

Unfortunately incidents of mortgage fraud still arise. We recently acted for a client whose property in Peterborough had been let by him. He was resident outside the company and whilst he was away a fraudster orchestrated a plan to secure the transfer of a number of properties, including that of our client, into the name of a company operated by him and then with the benefit of that portfolio of properties to negotiate a funding arrangement with a national bank for sums in excess of £1.4 million. Needless to say, the company defaulted upon payment of the money due to the bank with the consequence that the bank appointed receivers to dispose of the company’s assets which comprised this por...
