Alternative dispute resolution

We work closely with a claims management company, Alba Claims, who specialise in funding insolvency litigation.

Where the best route involves the courts, our lawyers understand the importance of guiding clients through the process step by step and ensuring that everything is thoroughly prepared. We have extensive experience in the Sheriff Court, Supreme Court, Lands Tribunal and Land Court, as well as before numerous Tribunals and Inquiries.
