Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Our expert team works with a wide range of clients to manage risk in all areas of their business and to resolve disputes in the most efficient and effective way.

When faced with a dispute you need lawyers who understand your business and work with you to set strategic goals. At Carson McDowell we have the largest and most experienced multi-disciplined Litigation and Dispute Resolution team in Northern Ireland. We are involved in and have a proven track record of acting successfully in a large proportion of high-value and complex litigation and dispute resolution work in our jurisdiction.

Our dispute resolution solicitors will focus on resolving an issue in the most straightforward and cost-effective way possible – preferably without recourse to litigation. We have been at the forefront of the movement towards alternative forms of dispute resolution in Northern Ireland and regularly represent clients in mediation, arbitration and adjudication settings. Where litigation cannot be avoided we guide clients through what can be a difficult process and provide commercially focused, strategic advice to deliver the best possible outcome.

Our team and expertise is further strengthened by complementary disciplines. Together, as part of a larger multi-disciplinary team, we collaborate to ensure that our clients enjoy a full and seamless service at all times. For example, our clients are often keen to avoid the adverse publicity that may accompany a dispute. In these circumstances we work closely with our Media, Communications & Reputation team to manage any matters that may attract unwanted attention, seeking to ensure that private matters are kept private.

We regularly act in County Court, High Court, and Court of Appeal with experience also in the Supreme Court and European Court of Justice.
