At Sweeney McHugh, we have considerable experience and expertise dealing with various “contentious” or disputed matters. We take the same approach to such matters as we would take to all disputed cases, that is that our client needs and deserves solicitors who will pursue the claim aggressively, whilst at the same time clearly explaining every stage of the process to clients.
Examples of contentious matters on which we advise are as follows:
• land & boundary disputes
• financial disputes
• product liability
• contract claims>
• professional negligence
• disciplenary proceedings before professional bodies
We have experience in acting on behalf of clients both prosecting and defendants various types of proceedings at both the local District and Circuit Courts and at Hight Court and appeal Courts.
It should be noted that in contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
