Dispute Resolution & Litigation

An expert approach with flexible pricing structures means that Emms Gilmore Liberson can offer you the best possible litigation and dispute resolution advice for you or your business. The firm draws on a significant wealth of experience in Birmingham and beyond. We understand our clients’ needs and provide swift and robust legal advice when it matters.

We pride ourselves in providing complex litigation advice based on strong commercial, tactical and pragmatic solutions.  The team is now recognised in Legal 500 in its ability to “respond quickly and with enthusiasm” and two of our Directors Richard Cooper and Peter Adkins are personally recommended.

Disputes of any nature in business or indeed, for the individual result in uncertainty and it is, with this in mind, that our litigation team approach any dispute with a view to early resolution even before we have even been instructed. This is because, at the initial stage, we will provide you with an analysis of your matter and a strategic commercial approach at no cost. Once we have discussed the options with you, we will agree an efficient and cost effective way of dealing with your dispute and achieving the best possible outcome for you or your business. The team recognise that litigation advice is a distressed purchase for our clients. We always, therefore, provide strong and robust legal and commercial advice to ensure that the dispute has as little impact as possible on our clients and their businesses. The practice has a wealth of experience in both the domestic and international markets and advise individuals to PLC’s.
