How Can I Resolve a Dispute?

What is the Pre-Action Protocol?
This sets out the approach that should be taken by the parties in dispute. It provides guidance prior to the proceedings being commenced and helps to try to avoid unnecessary costs, disputes and proceedings.

Thereafter, a letter of claim can be drafted or responded to (dependant on if the claim is being started by you or against you). It is then important to consider negotiations, mediation and alternative dispute resolution to resolve the matter. If all else fails and there are merits to the case – you should consider formal proceedings.
