If you have a claim against another business or an individual, you will want to weigh up the merits and cost of issuing proceedings before doing so. In some circumstances, it may be appropriate to enter into negotiations with the other side before issuing court proceedings. Mediation is a process for resolving disputes without the need to go to trial. It involves using an independent third party, a mediator, who assists both sides to come to an agreement. The mediator remains neutral throughout the entire process.
The importance of making a Will cannot be over-emphasised. If you die without one, a set of rules known as the Intestacy Rules will apply. These dictate who can inherit your asset and it is unlikely your assets will be distributed as you had wished. Making a Will, therefore, provides you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that all your wishes will be fully met and your affairs are in order. At Owen White & Catlin, we know that the thought of making a Will can appear a little daunting or even morbid.
We understand that the loss of a relative or loved one is a difficult time. We know that the process of dealing with the things the deceased leaves behind (known as their estate), can be complex and onerous. That is why our Probate Solicitors always deal with the process of administering estates sensitively and with care, providing advice and delivering a service tailored to the specific needs of our clients. The term is often used to refer to the entire process of dealing with a deceased's estate, from applying to the court for the right to administer the estate, to making sure the deceased's assets are distributed to the right people.
Commercial Litigation is generally dealt with in the County Court and High Court, where one is suing or being sued for money or property. The disputes that form the subject of Commercial Litigation vary greatly, from multi-million pounds company and partnership battles to simple rent arrears cases or Professional Negligence actions. When you have a requirement to resolve a dispute via litigation, we understand you need speed, efficiency and an understanding of commercial risk. At Owen White & Catlin, we have a team of skilled and experienced Litigation and Dispute Resolution Solicitors who will take time to understand your business needs and devise a litigation strategy that best suits you.
The law can touch family life in various ways, from providing tools to help us prepare for the future to setting down a framework to deal with the legal consequences of the breakdown of a relationship. Our Family Law team aims to make the law work for our clients, helping them to find a solution to what may seem like a difficult problem. We understand the sensitivity of family matters, and are members of Resolution, which promotes a non-confrontational approach to resolving legal matters. It is for these reasons and more that our Family Law team adopts a positive and constructive approach aimed at minimising emotional and financial burdens.
