CIVIL LAW

Overview

The civil team at Church Court is able to draw on a wide range of knowledge and experience in dealing with all forms of civil and commercial disputes. Alongside our expertise as court room advocates, we offer full advisory services, both written and oral, from the initial stage of consideration of the merits of proposed litigation to the drafting of pleadings when the claim is issued. Clients and opponents have included high profile companies and internationally recognised brands. At the junior end of our civil team, solicitors routinely observe that Members have extensive experience and skill beyond their year of Call.

We adopt a commercial, cost conscious approach and are always aware of the lay client’s primary objective in each case. We are experienced in all forms of alternative dispute resolution and our members have appeared at formal negotiations, mediations and arbitrations.

We accept instructions in the following key areas:

  • Injunctions
  • Insurance and reinsurance
  • Landlord and tenant
  • Personal injury and clinical negligence
  • Contractual disputes
  • Product liability
  • Defamation
  • Mediation
  • Professional negligence

Our location and experience as court room advocates enables us to respond to instructions to obtain, or respond to, emergency and without notice applications for injunctions, search and freezing orders.
