on your side

Welcome to George Ide’s dispute resolution department

Despite the best will in the world, it is not always possible to live in peace and harmony with all those around us.

Every now and again many of us are likely to find ourselves in dispute with others at one level or another – a contested inheritance, a problem with your landlord or your tenant, a disagreement over a contract, a repair job badly done, anti-social neighbours or their troublesome overgrown trees, negligent professional advice, or perhaps a dispute about money.

You are always our top priority

At George Ide we are on your side whatever lies at the heart of the matter with clear, straightforward, sensible advice to help resolve the issue quickly and cost-effectively. We will keep you up-to-date with our progress and make sure you understand your options at every stage along the way.

What can you expect from us as your dispute resolution solicitors?

Our approachable legal experts have a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon. In most cases, civil disputes can be resolved out of court but, if negotiation and mediation should fail to reach agreement, you can rest assured that our litigation specialists will strive to achieve your best possible outcome in court.

We’ll guide you through the court process, cutting through the jargon to ensure you know where you stand at every step, and represent you and your best interests in the courtroom.

We will put your best interests first

If you would like advice about a dispute you are currently facing or are worried about a situation that you feel may be getting out of hand, contact our team in confidence – you can be sure of a well-informed, high-quality personal legal service based on integrity, loyalty, commitment and experience.
