Litigation and Dispute Resolution


At MacDonald Oates we offer our clients a tailored service in relation to a full range of disputes.

Our specialist litigation teams have considerable experience and a proven track record of dealing with claims successfully at all levels, ranging from claims in the County Court and the High Court to the Court of Appeal.

We understand the pressures that disputes bring to bear on individuals and businesses. As a result we aim to resolve every matter as quickly and cost effectively as possible and where appropriate we will also offer advice on alternative dispute resolution procedures that may be considered, such as negotiation, mediation and arbitration.

We are able to offer advice on the various litigation funding options available including After the Event insurance to cover the risk of having to pay an opponent’s legal costs, Conditional Fee Agreements and third party funding for appropriate cases.

We offer expert guidance for our clients at every stage, from before proceedings have actually been issued to assisting clients with the assessment of costs and to the enforcement of a judgment.
