Civil Litigation is the method of resolving disputes or claims between individuals, companies, local authorities and government departments. Generally such matters fall into two categories. One is based on contract being an agreement between two or more parties and the other is based on a civil wrong caused by one party to another either deliberately or negligently.

The range of disputes based on contract can vary from the relatively minor case of the purchase of defective items such as an electric kettle to a multimillion Dalasi claim arising as a result of penalty clauses in a budding contract. If you are involved in a dispute with another individual or company we can advise you on your chances of success and the possible value of your claim.
