How Switalskis can help you

Our approach towards dispute resolution is designed to offer the most comprehensive services possible to our clients. Our team of dispute resolution solicitors and litigation specialists bring with them a wealth of experience across a range of dispute categories. Here's how we can assist you:

Neighbour disputes

Disputes with neighbours can escalate quickly and impact your daily life. Our litigation solicitors specialise in resolving these conflicts through mediation, arbitration or legal action, helping you maintain peace on your doorstep.

Boundary disputes

When it comes to property, every inch counts. Boundary disputes can be complex and need a deep understanding of both legal rights and surveying practices. Our dispute resolution solicitors pay meticulous attention to detail, making sure that your boundary issues are resolved clearly and equitably.

Contract disputes

Contracts are at the heart of many business and personal transactions. A breach can have serious consequences. Our civil dispute solicitors are adept at interpreting contract terms and advocating fiercely on your behalf, aiming to either uphold your end of the agreement or seek appropriate remedies.

Services disputes

When you've invested in a home extension or a beautifully landscaped garden, the last thing you want is shoddy workmanship. If you find yourself at the receiving end of poorly executed services, our dispute solicitors can assist you in seeking reparations or compensation.

Types of dispute resolution

Legal issues can be overwhelming, especially when you find yourself in the middle of a dispute. Whether it's with a neighbour, a contractor, or within the terms of a contract, each type of dispute demands a different approach. At Switalskis, our skilled dispute resolution solicitors are proficient in various methods for resolving conflicts. Here are some of the types of dispute resolution that we specialise in:


An increasingly popular method, mediation involves a neutral third-party mediator who assists the disputing parties in finding a mutually acceptable solution. It's often less confrontational and generally quicker than going to court.


In this method, an arbitrator or a panel makes a decision about the dispute, which is usually binding. Arbitration can be less formal than a court proceeding but still provides a framework for resolving disagreements.


When other avenues fail, litigation is the traditional route where the matter goes to court. This process can be the most time-consuming and expensive, but it may be necessary for certain disputes.

How does the dispute resolution process work?

The dispute resolution process can seem complicated, but with the guidance of our seasoned dispute resolution solicitors, we aim to make it as straightforward as possible for you. Here's a general outline of how the process typically works:

Step 1: Initial consultation

Our first step is to understand the nature of your dispute thoroughly. During this initial consultation, we'll go over the details of your case, evaluate its merits, and discuss potential strategies.

Step 2: Selecting a method

Depending on the specific circumstances and what you're comfortable with, we'll help you select the most appropriate dispute resolution method, be it mediation, arbitration or litigation.

Step 3: Preparation

Next, our expert litigation solicitors will gather all necessary documents, evidence and witnesses to fortify your case. This stage is vital in shaping the direction of the dispute resolution process.

Step 4: Engaging the other party

Once prepared, we will engage with the opposing party, presenting your case and opening the door for negotiations or formal proceedings.

Step 5: Proceedings

If it comes to formal proceedings, be it arbitration or litigation, we will work to get the best possible outcome. Our dispute resolution solicitors are highly experienced in court settings and skilled at presenting your case in the most compelling way.

Step 6: Negotiation and settlement

In less formal settings like mediation, we'll assist in trying to achieve a fair and mutually agreeable settlement for you.

Step 7: Closure

Once an agreement is reached or a court judgment is passed, we'll guide you through the final steps, which may include signing legal documents, making payments, or any other actions necessary to close the case.

Step 8: Post-resolution support

After the case concludes, we're still here for you. Whether it's helping with the implementation of a court order or advising on next steps, we'll make sure you have the support you need.

With Switalskis by your side, you'll have access to personalised legal advice and representation, making sure you’re well-equipped to navigate the complexities of the dispute resolution process.

How long does dispute resolution typically take?

The duration of the dispute resolution process can vary significantly depending on the complexity of the case, the willingness of both parties to reach a resolution, and the method of dispute resolution chosen. Here at Switalskis, our dispute resolution solicitors have experience across a multitude of cases, allowing us to provide you with a tailored estimate once we've assessed your unique situation.

It's worth noting that opting for mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution can often expedite the process, whereas litigation can extend it. Rest assured, our team of dispute resolution solicitors will work diligently to resolve your case in the most time-efficient manner, while prioritising your best interests.

Is dispute resolution confidential?

Confidentiality is a cornerstone of the dispute resolution process. At Switalskis, we understand the importance of maintaining privacy and discretion throughout your case. Our dispute resolution solicitors are bound by strict codes of professional conduct, making sure that all information shared during the process remains confidential unless legally required otherwise.

When engaging in methods like mediation or arbitration, the parties involved often sign confidentiality agreements to safeguard the information disclosed. This means that the details discussed cannot be used for any other purpose outside of the dispute resolution process unless expressly agreed by both parties.

Rest assured, when you seek the services of our dispute resolution solicitors at Switalskis, you are guaranteed a confidential environment in which to resolve your personal or civil disputes.
