Disputes

Disputes Solicitor, Wexford

Commercial disputes can include disagreements between companies and their employees, customers, suppliers, partners or directors.

Such disputes often arise over issues such as:

  • Employment cases including redundancy, unfair dismissal and equality
  • Breach of contract
  • Shareholdings
  • Debt or insolvency
  • Professional negligence and medical negligence
  • Property ownership
  • Property damage
  • Succession and inheritance disputes
  • Defective products and services
  • Arbitration – concerning disputes with your insurance company

Often, one party involved in the dispute may instigate court proceedings if agreement cannot be reached.  At John A. Sinnott & Co. Solicitors, we have represented both sides in many cases.

Sometimes it is necessary to go to court but we always encourage alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to be explored first.  This refers to attempting to resolve the dispute without going through the court system, usually using mediation.  The goal is to reach a solution that is fair to all without the need for expensive and lengthy litigation.

ADR can save time and money by avoiding the costly process of going to court.  It can also help preserve relationships between parties and can offer more flexibility in terms of the outcome.

*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement. At John A. Sinnott & Co. Solicitors, we have never charged any client a percentage of his/her award as fees. The cost, or the basis of charges will be given to you in writing once we have your initial instructions on the case.
