Whenever a situation has the potential to end in court then you need the advice of someone who understands the nature and complexity of litigation. Wherever possible, every effort is made to resolve disputes without becoming involved in litigation. Therefore litigation advice at early stages can really save time and expense.
At Regal Law Solicitors, our objective is to use litigation and arbitration only as a tool of last resort, seeking instead to conclude matters, whether by other forms of dispute resolution or negotiation, to the satisfaction of clients in a practical commercial manner at the earliest opportune time.
Where arbitration or negotiations prove impossible to realise, depending on the case,the most effective action is taken to achieve the best results for the client which includes assessing the outcome of the case, cost estimates, time estimates for the action and the opponent's ability to litigate.
Assessing Your Matter
We understand not only the legal issues involved but also the issues that are likely to be concerns for you in deciding whether to pursue or defend a claim. Either way we will give clear impartial advice about whether your complaint amounts to a defence or a claim worth pursuing in law and if applicable what loss you may expect to recover.
We know your primary consideration when instructing a solicitor is the cost and funding of your matter. We pride ourselves on the fact that we operate our billing process in an open and transparent manner, and want to work with you and address your concerns from the outset.
The Government provides funding for legal services in the form of legal aid. This is awarded to candidates based on their financial situation and other circumstances. Whilst we do not have a franchise to deal with Legal Aid cases, we will advise you if we think you may be eligible for public funding and refer you to a firm which offers Legal Aid.
Free initial advice
In some cases we can offer free initial advice at no charge. Unfortunately it is not always possible to offer this service as it is subject to the discretion and availability of the legal advisor. Therefore when arranging an appointment for free advice please make sure you confirm that it is at no charge.
Alternatively we may offer a 30 minutes initial appointment for £60. A fixed fee interview would not be appropriate for complex matters or if you are mid-way through court proceedings and require a Solicitor to represent you or if you require work to be carried out urgently.
