PERSONAL & COMMERCIAL DISPUTES
All business disputes are disruptive and time-consuming. They can also be very costly which is why our team offers an effective approach to all forms of disputes to produce as swift a resolution as possible. As a result, we have earned a reputation that has projected the firm to the very forefront of those throughout Wales, which can offer this area of expertise.
We have experience in all aspects of commercial property and civil litigation including disputes relating to commercial contracts shareholder agreements, partnerships, injunctive relief, landlord and tenant as well as debt recovery and professional negligence claims. We have represented clients at all stages of the legal process, including appeals to the Court of Appeal and the House of Lords.
In some cases, court proceedings may not be the answer to a dispute and we will consider how practically to resolve a conflict in other ways. Arbitration and mediation have created an environment to handle individual disputes, which allow conflicts to be resolved quickly and economically.
In all cases, we seek to promote the best interests of our client and find an appropriate resolution.
WILLS & INHERITANCE DISPUTES
Disputes over wills, trusts and probate occur at times of emotional vulnerability and require the utmost care and attention.

Challenge to the validity of a will on grounds of forgery.
Claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependents) Act 1975.
Actions for the removal of executors/trustees where there is a dispute.
Actions for the rectification of wills.
Allegations of breach of trust.
A challenge to wills based upon assurances concerning the inheritance of land or property given to someone during their lifetime which doesn’t match the terms of their will.
Challenge to a will based upon an allegation that the apparent beneficiary was in fact meant to be holding for others.
