Private Litigation

Private Litigation

On occasion there is no option but to consider litigation. Avery Emerson’s litigation team offers expert assistance and action throughout the litigation process.

We operate for both commercial and private disputes, and are at your side every step of the way. You will find that our commitment to you, our level of communication, and our efficiency are second to none.

We also understand that litigation can be expensive, and we always assess the costs on behalf of you, the client, ahead of taking action, and work hard to avoid excess expenditure. In this area, as in so many others, we almost always try to initiate negotiations, so as to arrive at a speedy and inexpensive conclusion – though we will move on to formal legal action if negotiations do not achieve the client’s objectives.

Our staff have vast experience in creating realistic and achievable strategies for private litigation, and we review each strategy at every stage, carefully and pragmatically. An important part of that is being aware of costs at every point, and being prepared to negotiate a settlement where the client’s interests are best served. At each of these stages we ensure that you, the client, are comprehensively briefed and fully aware of the various routes we can explore to achieve your objectives. Private litigation can be complex and confusing, but every nuance will be explained to you, and you are always in charge of the process.

Areas in which we often act on behalf of clients include:

  • Debt recovery
  • Insolvency proceedings
  • Contract disputes
  • Appeals to the High Court
  • Property Disputes
  • Inheritance/Probate Claims
  • Boundary Disputes
