CIVIL LITIGATION

Aston Brooke manage most forms of civil disputes through a dedicated department of specialists. Governed by the Civil Procedure Rules, the civil litigation process is monitored to ensure that lawyers efficiently progress cases with stringent responsibility.

By carrying out in depth investigations and professional research into all aspects of a case, prior to proceeding, we work to minimise both time and expense, whilst working to reach the best outcome.

At all times, as a client, it is of paramount importance that exact and full instructions are presented by you. Failure to disclose essential information or arbitrary delays will also affect our ability to manage and advance your case effectively. In addition, it may lead to the court making financial sanctions and/or adverse orders regarding your case.

Aston Brooke have built a resounding reputation for not only being responsive and understanding to our clients but more so cost-effective, unbiased and down-to-earth. Utilising our helpful and flexible fee structures, we achieve a cost-neutral solution for our clients’ dispute management. Working relentlessly, we pride ourselves in delivering successful conclusions to our clients’ disputes.

 

ABOUT LITIGATION

Lawsuits or litigation can be costly experiences. As so, we believe that it is important to consider all possible alternatives, for example mediation; or arbitration and other courses of negotiation before committing to a trial. Often depending on the complexity and nature of the claim, these alternative avenues can be preferred as they often provide a quicker and more cost-effective resolution. There is also an expectancy from the court that the parties, including yourself, will have at least attempted other means of dispute resolution, away from the court doors.

We work to assess your instructions and present you with the most accurate estimate of what costs you could potentially face if your case does reach the final stages; i.e. a trial. The majority of the litigation cases we undertake are charged on an hourly rate basis.

If litigation is unavoidable, it is sometimes possible to fund the matter in several different ways. We will work with you and discuss which available funding methods will best suit your needs from our litigation department in Harrow.

• Charge at an hourly rate – you will only be charged for the time spent on your matter and if successful Aston Brooke will recoup as much as possible from the other side;

• Conditional Fee Agreement – commonly known as No Win No fee;

• Legal Expense insurance (LEI) – Most LEI is sold when you buy a car or home in insurance policy. The cover is designed to offer protection if you are faced with a litigation; and
• Damage Based Agreement – if you are successful Aston Brooke will only be paid a percentage of your award
