For our business clients, disputes are an inherent day to day risk. It is important to resolve the dispute in the most cost effective and practical way and to look beyond the present dispute to see if similar problems might be avoided in the future.
Commercially aware clients expect alternative and imaginative approaches to problem solving. We aim to establish our client’s goals right from the start and tailor our approach in each individual case. Every problem has a solution, and aswell as seeking innovative answers we also explore alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as mediation, arbitration and adjudication in order to resolve our client’s disputes.
Litigation can be protracted, stressful and often expensive. At Lindsays, we believe that taking advantage of sound legal advice at an early stage can often turn out to be the least painful and most cost-effective strategy of all.
However, there is still a place for litigation and, should this be the most appropriate approach, our team is well equipped to guide our clients though the court process, including recommending whether or not to sue, as well as how best to secure payment. We have a strong track record of successfully representing clients in Sheriff Courts throughout Scotland, the Court of Session and at Traffic Commissioner’s Public Enquiry.
We regularly provide advice on a wide range of issues such as:
- arbitration and adjudication
- bankruptcy and insolvency actions
- commercial disputes
- contract disputes
- housing disputes
- personal injury claims for employers and employees
- professional negligence
- debt recovery and repossessions
- landlord and tenant issues including advice on the tenancy deposit scheme, drafting tenancy agreements and actions of evictions
