Ward Hadaway has kicked off 2019 in style after being awarded Firm of the Year in the Dispute Resolution category (outside London) as part of the Legal 500 UK Awards.
Disputes are a fact of life.
Whether you have fallen out with a business partner, are on the receiving end of a claim against your company or firm or whether you are involved in a personal claim, disputes are fraught with stress and time pressure.
When it comes to resolving such disputes, it pays to have the best people on your side.
With a specialist litigation team across offices in Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester, Ward Hadaway is recognised as having one of the strongest litigation teams in the North.
Whether you are a FTSE 100 company looking for City quality work without the City rates, or a local business or individual looking for top quality advice, we are able to help you.
The basics are a given. We have an extensive line-up of top quality lawyers who are able to give specialist advice and guide you through your dispute.
We listen carefully to our clients’ objectives and are recognised for our commercial approach and for giving clear, pragmatic advice. We pride ourselves on thinking outside of the box and do not fit the image of a stereotypical litigation team.
We recognise that for most clients, the question of costs and cost control is paramount when it comes to dealing with disputes.
That’s why we will be very open with you at the outset as to how much your dispute is likely to cost and talk to you about whether there are any alternative funding options which will work for you, depending upon the nature and strength of your case.
We always take a commercial approach and recognise the importance of keeping you up to date on costs.
Our team of specialists handles disputes ranging from applications for emergency injunctions, to more straightforward contractual disputes.
We will help you to resolve your dispute whether by negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or, if necessary, Court proceedings.

- Contractual disputes
