Disputes

Disputes Solicitor, Wexford

Disputes can arise for many reasons – with an employer, with a company when purchasing products and services, with neighbours, over ownership of land or inheritance etc.

Mediation is a practical solution for keeping disputes out of the Courts and we always encourage exploring mediation in the first instance.  Where a dispute arises, the parties can appoint a mediator who will facilitate discussions in an impartial and non-judgemental manner, in an effort to encourage the parties to reach an agreement.

By appointing a mediator, the parties can save substantial sums of money on legal costs and keep their dispute out of the public domain.

It can also help preserve relationships between parties and can offer more flexibility in terms of the outcome.

Sometimes litigation is unavoidable and often, one party involved in the dispute may instigate court proceedings.  We have represented both sides in many cases, including:

  • Employment disputes including redundancy, unfair dismissal and equality, breach of contract
  • Disputes regarding debt or mortgage arrears
  • Professional negligence and medical negligence
  • Land ownership
  • Will disputes
  • Claims against estates of a deceased person
  • Claims concerning undue influence on a Will or deeds
  • Damage to property
  • Defective products and services
  • Citizenship and asylum
  • Arbitration – concerning disputes with your insurance company

*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.
