We have a specialist, experienced department focussing on a wide range of aspects of civil litigation. The team is led by a Partner in the firm, Andrew Horwich, and he brings a wealth of experience and technical expertise to any given job. Andrew is extremely popular with his clients and is a widely respected figure in the local legal and business community.
Any form of litigation can be highly unpredictable, both in terms of outcome and cost. Our team will provide clear advice on:
- All issues involved at the outset of your particular case
- The likely prospects of success
- The potential duration of the litigation
- The potential costs that may be involved
Of course, we are unable to guarantee success or to accurately predict costs every time as litigation is unpredictable by its very nature. However, our team is focused on providing the best possible guidance to you at the outset of your case and throughout its duration so that you are armed with the best information that you can possibly have.
The types of litigation can be broad and varied. Our team have expertise in advising on Accident Claims and Contract or Commercial Claims. In addition, our team has advised on more specialist types of litigation matters such as Land Registry adjudications and Landlord and Tenant disputes.
If you have any form of dispute and require some specialist advice, then we would recommend contacting Andrew Horwich at our Scunthorpe office to have a chat through your requirements.
How our litigation solicitors can help you
Accident and injury claims
When you have been injured as the result of someone else’s negligence, it can be very distressing, as well as potentially impacting your health, wellbeing and ability to carry on your life as normal. Our team can provide sensitive support to claim compensation to help you get your life back on track.
We can assist with claiming compensation for a wide range of accidents and injuries, including:
- Slip, trip and fall claims
- Accident at work claims
See how our litigation solicitors can help with accident and injury claims.
If you have suffered losses or stand to suffer losses due to someone else’s action or inaction, taking legal action may be necessary. In many cases, early intervention from an experienced litigation solicitor can help to achieve a positive outcome quickly and cost-effectively. In other cases, it may be necessary to take a dispute to court to ensure the right outcome.
We can assist with litigation claims across areas, including:
- Contract disputes
- Commercial disputes
- Land law disputes

Landlord and tenant disputes
Disputes between landlords and tenants are often complex, with reference to tenancy agreements or leases that can be long and difficult to interpret. Expert legal advice can give you clarity over your position and your options for seeking a resolution.
We can assist with resolving:
- Residential landlord and tenant disputes
- Commercial landlord and tenant disputes
See how our litigation solicitors can help with landlord and tenant disputes.
Land Registry disputes and adjudication
Disputes over the title of a property can be challenging to resolve, especially as the boundaries shown on title deeds are often not as clear as people might expect. While such disputes would ideally be resolved amicably between the parties involved (and this is often achievable), sometimes it may be necessary to take the matter to the Land Registry adjudicator. In either eventuality, having the right legal advice is critical.
We can advise on disputes related to issues such as:
- Unregistered property
- All other types of title deed disputes
See how our litigation solicitors can help with Land Registry disputes and adjudication.
Will disputes (also sometimes referred to as ‘contentious probate’) can be difficult to deal with, both legally and due to the relationships between the people involved. It is important to preserve family and personal relationships wherever possible, while also ensuring the cost of dealing with the dispute does not significantly diminish the value of the estate in question. Pragmatic early advice from expert litigation solicitors can make all the difference.
We can assist with Will disputes involving matters such as:
- Questions over the deceased’s capacity to make a valid Will
- Undue influence or pressure on the deceased over the making of their Will
- Claims that the Will does not adequately provide for certain parties
See how our litigation solicitors can help with Will disputes.
Our litigation solicitors’ fees
The cost of litigation is always an important consideration, and we take great care in making sure clients have all the information they need to make an informed decision about whether the likely costs involved outweigh the potential benefits.
Our litigation solicitors will provide a realistic estimate of costs at the outset, including both our fees and any third-party fees.
Where appropriate, we can handle some matters on a fixed fee basis. Where ongoing support is required, we will provide regular updates on cost and no billable work will be carried out without your consent.
For general information about our fees and cost, please see our pricing page.
