Taking a Matter to Court

We are your local civil litigation solicitors in Exeter. Our experienced litigation lawyers have a strong track record of securing positive outcomes for our clients in a range of matters.

What is civil litigation?

Litigation is the resolving of disputes between parties using lawyers and the courts. Civil litigation cases do not involve any criminal charges. Litigation can arise out of debts or disputes about anything from boundaries to wills, or breaches of a contract or trust.

What does a civil litigation lawyer do?

Our litigation solicitors will advise you about your position in relation to the dispute and possible courses of action. If necessary, they will issue court proceedings and compile evidence for your case. They may represent you in court, or advise you if a barrister is required.

Litigation may not be the most cost effective way to resolve a dispute, and where this is the case we will be clear about this with you. Where litigation may be appropriate we will discuss with you the likely costs and the options for funding your case, and advise which funding method best suits your financial position.

If you instruct us, a named litigation lawyer will support your case from start to finish and keep you informed throughout the process. We will start by meeting with you to discuss your case, the process and possible outcomes. We will help you to understand your rights and can also talk about alternative dispute resolution methods.
