The key role of a litigation solicitor when handling disputes

The key role of a litigation solicitor when handling disputes

In need of dispute resolution? A litigation solicitor is here to help you navigate issues in a smart and effective way.

Disagreement is a part of daily life. Conflicts appear at home, at work, and in business operations.

Any individual or business could become involved in a dispute which could range from a minor disagreement to a substantial and potentially costly matter.

And sometimes, these issues need outside aid in the form of litigation.

Known also as a litigator, a litigation solicitor specializes in the resolution of disputes between individuals and/or corporations and is responsible for representing claimants or defendants before, during, and after court hearings.

 

Dispute resolution

 

Traditionally, litigation refers to cases that reach trial but the term uses to cover alternative dispute resolution methods such as arbitration or mediation.

If not handled correctly, disputes can damage business interests, brand, and reputation, meaning expert help from a litigation solicitor is a necessity.

A good solicitor Cork will advise clients on the best and appropriate dispute resolution processes for any particular problem. They will investigate fully, collating all of the vital information needed while pursuing the case to its full extent.

A litigation solicitor will handle the case with personal attention and weigh advice against the costs. All options consider alongside a client’s circumstances.

 

Stages of litigation

 

The normal stages of litigation begin with correspondence to see if the matter can be resolved. If no resolution can be found, a letter before action is issued and if no satisfactory resolution is reached from that, then formal proceedings will start.

Usually, parties will try to negotiate, narrow, or settle the matter but if it continues to be contested a defense will be received.

Then the parties may raise particulars before the case is set down for trial and heard.

Finally, the judgment is delivered.

Here at Ronan Enright Solicitors, our litigation solicitors have handled a large number of claims for both Plaintiffs and Defendants in Cork city and beyond. We adopt a proactive approach to try to resolve your disputes as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible.

From medical negligence, public and product liability to contract disputes and defamation, we are here to help every step of the way.

So, if you require the services of an experienced litigation solicitor, please contact Ronan Enright Solicitors at (021) 235 5443 or email info@ronanenright.com

 

Wish to solve a disagreement outside of the courts? A dispute resolution solicitor can help

Wish to solve a disagreement outside of the courts? A dispute resolution solicitor can help

 

Here is how a dispute resolution solicitor can help you rectify agreements without going to court.

What happens when a dispute gets out of hand?

Where do you go and who do you turn to?

In life, disagreements happen every hour of every day. From minor moments of miscommunication to more heated encounters, the contention is unavoidable.

Sometimes these disputes can only be rectified through the courts and with the help of a litigation solicitor.

However, many parties wish to deal with such issues outside of a courtroom. And so, they will need a dispute resolution solicitor with expert knowledge in the area.

The reasons for this choice include:

Cost: Although arbitration is an exception, the cost of all other mediation is a fraction of what a court appearance would amount to.

Privacy: Rather than in open court, meetings in dispute resolution take place in private.

Speed: Unlike undertaking a lengthy court case, the alternatives handed down by a dispute resolution solicitor are dealt with promptly and efficiently. Parties also have more control over the process.

So, what types of settlement aids can a dispute resolution solicitor help provide to clients?

 

Arbitration

 

Arbitration is a form of dispute resolution that sees two disputing parties agree to submit their dispute to a neutral third party for determination.

This agreement to submit the dispute to arbitration is commonly found in a contract clause between both parties.

In arbitration, an independent individual will hear details of a disagreement from those involved, consider all the facts and give a final decision on the issue.

Arbitration is very similar to a court case and a dispute resolution solicitor will usually be engaged by both parties.

 

Mediation

It also defines as “a confidential, facilitative and voluntary process in which parties to a dispute, with the assistance of a mediator, attempt to reach a mutually acceptable agreement to resolve the dispute.”

Mediation is a voluntary form of dispute resolution, so a person cannot be required to use mediation to resolve the issue. All parties must agree to use mediation beforehand.

Even when the parties have agreed to use mediation, it remains voluntary. The parties are free to decide at any time not to continue.
Only the parties decide if, when, and how to resolve the dispute through mediation. The terms of any resolution agreement between the parties only become binding when set down in writing and signed by them.

 

The obligations of a dispute resolution solicitor

 

By law, before you start court action, your dispute resolution solicitor must advise you to consider mediation to resolve your dispute. He or she must also give you information about:

•      Mediation services are available in the state.
•      The possible advantages for you and the other parties of resolving your dispute outside of the courts.

It’s important to note that mediation or arbitration may not be suitable for every dispute. Your dispute resolution solicitor will advise you on all options and help you distinguish the most suitable for your needs. If you are in need of a dispute resolution solicitor, please contact Ronan Enright Solicitors now on (021) 235 5443 or email info@ronanenright.com

How Top Cork Solicitor Can Help You When Making a Will

How top solicitor Cork can help you when making a will

While people are often reluctant to do so, the importance of making a will cannot be stressed enough.

A will is a legal document in which the person making the will expresses his or her wishes as to how their property and assets will be shared after their death.

As morbid as it may sound, it’s a provision that provides protection and security to family members. It enables you to put affairs in order that is in accordance with the needs of your loved ones.

An ‘executor’ (or executor) named in your will is usually responsible for carrying out your wishes.

As with all legal conditions, a legal expert, such as Cork solicitor Ronan Enright, will be there every step of the way to inform and guide you.

For every issue or query that arises, you can assure continuous support, expert knowledge, and best practice.

Solicitor Cork Ronan Enright has over 14 years of experience in wills and probate and there are many ways he can help.

He will outline the important questions to ask yourself before proceeding. Do these questions include what will happen if you pass away and is your family provides for?

Or who will after your children when you’re gone or will they have a secure financial future?

Then he will assist with a wide range of estate planning and services such as:

-Administration of estates
-Estate planning and capital tax advice
-Initial preparation and drafting of wills
-Powers of Attorney including wards of court and Enduring Powers of Attorney
-Legal right share entitlements of spouses

It’s important to remember that if you pass away without making a will, an administrator will pay any of your outstanding debts from your estate and your assets will be divided up among various relatives but this may not be a true reflection of what you want. In this case, you will have died ‘intestate.’

There is a set formula to the subsequent process but it is often more complicated and expensive than it would be with a valid will.
It is also vital to remember that a will can only be valid if it is made in writing, the person making the will is over 18 years old and the person has the capacity to make a will.

Meanwhile, the testator must sign or mark the will at the end of the document and do so in the presence of two witnesses who must also sign it. These witnesses do not receive anything in the will.

If you have any queries related to wills and probate, contact Co. Cork solicitor Ronan Enright at (021) 235 5443 or email info@ronanenright.com
