Dispute resolution

Dispute resolution

You might find yourself in a tricky rental situation, either as landlord or tenant. Someone might have written something untrue about you online or you might be arguing with a neighbour over boundary lines or the height of a hedge. You might have suffered loss from a business dispute or due to the negligence of a professional adviser. When nasty situations arise in life you need clear advice.

At Morton Fraser we have an expert Litigation team who are here to help regardless of the size or nature of your dispute. From property and business disputes to defamation, professional negligence and problems arising out of Wills and Trusts, our specialists will give expert guidance to help you through what can often be a stressful situation.
