Frequently Asked Questions

A financial dispute is a disagreement between two or more parties relating to a transaction. Examples include breaches of mandates, mis-selling, and the sending of money to a third party in error. These situations can often be expensive and complicated to resolve, making the involvement of an experienced solicitor vital.

The final cost to resolve a financial dispute depends on several factors. These include the unique circumstances of the transaction in question, and whether or not the situation can be resolved via mediation. Working with a specialist law firm can also help reduce costs, as they’ll take care of the process for you and remove the possibility of making errors.

There is no exact timeframe to resolve a financial dispute, as those able to be settled via mediation will naturally conclude faster than those requiring the intervention of the courts. How quickly you involve a solicitor can also have an impact, as seeking legal advice at the earliest opportunity will streamline the process and limit disruptions.

How a financial dispute progresses depends largely on the unique circumstances of each transaction. The first step will likely be to seek an amicable resolution via mediation, as this is the most cost-effective and timely way to settle the disagreement. If this is not possible, both parties will go to litigation and let the courts decide the outcome.

Our team of financial dispute resolution solicitors will always seek to utilise the mediation process and has achieved considerable successes in doing so. Our priority is to achieve a smooth outcome that minimises risk and achieves your desired results.
