Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Ireland is a common law jurisdiction. Cases are determined by reference to precedents and legislation. Depending on the quantum or type of dispute various jurisdictions and courts may apply. Solicitors interact with the client and may operate to run cases at the lower courts. At the more senior courts Barristers will be engaged who are experts and court advocates specializing in particular areas of law.
In particular, we have expertise in the following areas:
- Bankruptcy litigation
- Breach of contract/warranty litigation
- Business organisational disputes
- Construction litigation
- Contract Disputes
- Complex Litigation
- Corporate and commercial litigation
- Debtor/creditor litigation
- Employment Law
- Intellectual Property
- Insurance litigation
- Judicial reviews
- Land use/property disputes
- Landlord/tenant disputes
- Planning Law
- Property Disputes
- Tax Litigation
- Technology Disputes
- Tortious disputes
The first legal recourse is not, and should never be, to the courts. At Hatstone (Ireland) LLP we may attempt in the first instance to resolve the matter by way of negotiation, or if unsuccessful mediation or arbitration.
Court applications and litigation are effectively an adversarial system. It is a fact that all litigation carries risk.
Of course, when a dispute is intractable or cannot be resolved by way of alternative means or negotiation then we are staffed with experienced litigators who will be best placed to deliver a result to protect your interests and fight for the best possible outcome for your case.
