Dispute resolution

The breadth and depth of expertise available at Watson Burton means that whatever issues you face, the dispute resolution group can provide commercial, pragmatic advice and outstanding service.
Our goal is to provide a tailored solution for every dispute case, always taking into consideration your business size, resources and aims, as well as the value of the dispute to you. We communicate closely with you throughout the course of the dispute so that you are fully aware of how the case is progressing. We respond quickly to developments in the case, the law and your business resource.

We now have one of the biggest commercial litigation practices in the North East of England with an ever increasing national reputation and we have gained an excellent track record for providing timely legal advice to a range of businesses to ensure disputes are resolved as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

For many years we have been leading providers of traditional litigation skills and more recently we have increased the breadth of skills in dispute resolution into mediation, adjudication and arbitration, covering all areas to ensure your dispute can be resolved in one comprehensive service.

The dispute resolution practice’s national reputation for resolving complex disputes has gained the trust of long-term clients, including some of the country’s largest retailers, professional services firms and both national and international insurance companies.
