Dispute Resolution

Disputes can be stressful, time consuming and damaging to your life and business.  Emotions can run high and otherwise rational people can be consumed by emotion in the midst of a dispute.  Often, prolonged litigation suits no-one, particularly when there is a relationship to preserve.

Whether the dispute is personal or commercial, our approach is the same.  At MKB we understand the need to give clear-cut advice.  Going to court is not always the answer.  Each dispute required a tailored solution, sometimes assertive, sometimes calculated.

Our first priority is to understand your objectives.  After evaluating your case’s strengths and weaknesses, where appropriate, we’ll explore early resolution through open and frank discussion with your opponent, and the use of mediation or ADR processes.

Where litigation is unavoidable, we have the talent and resources to represent out client’s best interests.  We ensure that our clients have the best chance of a positive outcome and we have a strong track record of success in the courts.

We are fully equipped to take swift and incisive action where required.

We fight our client’s corner: we take ownership of your dispute so that we can resolve it for you as effectively as possible.

We offer a wide range of flexible funding options for our clients including, as appropriate, advice and representation under legal expenses insurance policies, competitive hourly rates, fixed fee agreements and Conditional Fee Agreements.

We always ensure that our clients are kept informed at every step of the process.

Our practice is broad, both in terms of the type of work we handle and the industry sectors our clients belong to.  The Dispute Resolution Department at MKB advises on a wide range of commercial disputes.  MKB advises on a wide range of commercial disputes.  MKB is particularly noted for its experience in professional negligence, will disputes, property and contract litigation.
