Personal Dispute Resolution

With advice that is user-friendly and individually tailored, we help to ease the emotional and financial burden of a legal dispute.

Legal disputes can arise at any time and over the smallest thing. Whatever the issue, our Dispute Resolution Team is focused on one thing – achieving the best result for you. With branches throughout the North West, we offer a highly personalised and dependable service right there on your doorstep.

We will take the time to understand your dispute and your objective from the outset and work with you to achieve the best possible outcome as quickly and easily as possible.

We are able to handle every aspect of your dispute from start to finish and tailor our service to your specific needs. No dispute is too small or large.

At Butcher & Barlow we are transparent about our costs. We will not take on a claim that we do not think has a strong chance of success. We will provide advice on the funding options that are available to you including existing legal expenses insurance, trade union funding, purchased insurance or capped fees.

How can we help you?

Unpaid debts can have serious financial implications for you as an individual. You may have overpaid for a service or received a judgment in your favour and the other person or business is refusing to pay the money owed to you. We often recover the full sum due without needing to issue court proceedings. If court proceedings are necessary, you can rest assured knowing that you have a team of experienced solicitors on your side who have your best interests in mind

If you have entered into a contract with a supplier of goods or services such as a builder, and that business does not comply with its obligations under the contract, our team will advise you whether compensation is due to you.

You may be looking to receive a refund for a defective product, have a travel claim, or perhaps need to make a claim through your credit card provider. Our team can advise you on whether it is worth your while pursuing the claim and if it is, whether it is cost effective to instruct solicitors to assist you.

When you put your faith in a professional, the last thing you expect is for them to be negligent. Unfortunately, professionals do sometimes make mistakes, give the wrong advice, and miss deadlines etc. Our team can help put these mistakes right, whether through arbitration, mediation, or court proceedings, guiding you through the process and helping ease the emotional burden.

Whatever your dispute, our team is there for you. If you would like to arrange a free, no obligation appointment, whether by video, telephone or in person, to discuss your requirements, please get in touch with any member of our team. Alternatively, please complete our Enquiry Form by clicking the link and we will call you back as soon as possible.
