Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Becoming involved in a dispute is often difficult and costly. At Thomas Flavell & Sons we can help.

We will listen to you and advise upon the most beneficial way to resolve any issues and the prospects of winning any Court claim if necessary. We will agree a reasonable and transparent fee scale and provide realistic fee estimates to enable you to make an informed decision whether or not to pursue any Court proceedings or to consider Alternative Dispute Resolution. We also ensure that the advice we give to you is in your best interests, even if that means advising you against legal action.

We will take your instructions, listen to your objectives and advise you accordingly.

We will do our utmost to ensure the matter can be resolved quickly and where possible, without recourse to litigation. Whilst negotiation and mediation should always be the first option for those who find themselves involved in disagreement, there will be times when Court proceedings are unavoidable. If a dispute requires legal action, Thomas Flavell & Sons will act in your best interests.

How we can help

Thomas Flavell & Sons specialises in many types of contentious and non-contentious cases including the following:

Court of Protection Applications

We can assist with applications to the Court of Protection which is the specialist Court for all issues relating to people who lack capacity to make specific decisions.

Landlord and Tenant

We regularly advise landlords, tenants and managing agents. This includes action for rent arrears and eviction as well as lease breach and forfeiture proceedings. We also act for residential and commercial landlords.

Debt recovery and contract claims (over £10,000)

If you have or are facing a claim in excess of £10,000 we would be please to assist you.

Employment Law – Settlement

A sudden change in your working circumstances can be a worrying time.

If you are approached by your employer about a potential redundancy or voluntary redundancy, or if you have negotiated a withdrawal from the business for a sum of money, your employer may want all the agreed terms comprised within in a Settlement Agreement. This is a legally binding document designed to bring the employment relationship to an end on agreed terms so that each party can walk away on a clean basis.

It is fundamental for an employee to clearly understand the terms and effects of the Settlement Agreement their employer puts forward. It is always an express term of any Settlement Agreement the employee obtains independent legal advice. At first glance Settlement Agreements can be quite intimidating but with our help, we can guide your through the legal jargon. We will ensure you understand the practical and implied obligations that continue to bind all the parties after a Settlement Agreement has been signed.

At Thomas Flavell & Sons, we can expertly guide you on all aspects of Settlement Agreements and best of all, our costs are usually covered either entirely or in part by an employer’s contribution.

If you require any further information on any aspect of a Settlement Agreement, please get in contact with Noel McNicholas on 01455 620805 or nm@thomasflavell.co.uk for a no obligation discussion.
