Civil Litigation

Gavel Scales of Justice 300x125 - Civil Litigation

We have a dedicated department dealing with most types of civil disputes. The civil litigation process is governed by the Civil Procedure Rules, which places strict responsibility on lawyers to progress cases efficiently.

We aim to provide the best possible outcome for our clients by conducting in depth investigations and research into the prospects of a case before proceeding to reduce time and expense.

Any unreasonable delay or failure to disclose relevant information may result in financial sanctions and or adverse orders being made by the court. It is therefore very important that prompt and full instructions are provided by you, the client, to us at all times.

Aston Brooke has a reputation for being pragmatic and cost-effective, as well as responsive and empathetic. In many cases, our flexible and supportive fee structures result in cost-neutral dispute management for our clients. We always work tirelessly to resolve our clients’ disputes and deliver a successful conclusion.


ABOUT LITIGATION

Litigation can be very expensive. It is therefore prudent to explore all avenues of negotiation before embarking upon litigation. Sometimes, mediation or arbitration can be preferred alternatives to litigation depending on the nature and complexity of the case. Litigation is undertaken on an hourly rate basis. We will give you the best estimate we can, based on the information we have available to us, of your potential costs if the case goes to trial.

Should litigation become necessary the matter can be funded in a variety of ways, the Harrow litigation department will discuss which funding option is best suited for your needs.
  • Conditional Fee Agreement – commonly known as No win No fee
  • Damage Based Agreement – if you are successful Aston Brooke will only be paid a percentage of your award
  • Hourly Bases – 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
  • 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.
