The High Court of England & Wales has long had separate “divisions”. The “Chancery” division is the “Court of Equity or Conscience” and deals with cases where the strict application of the Common Law might lead to an unfair result.
For this reason, disputes as to estates of deceased persons or for trusts and similar matters are usually dealt with in the Chancery Courts and those disputes are, generally, referred to as “Chancery Disputes”.
Whether your dispute is a family or business matter, remember that success will come to the party who keeps a clear head, who sets emotional issues and rivalry to one side, accepts the facts, and advice based on those facts, and takes the long, cost-effective view.
We work closely with a range of specialist barristers, as these disputes are often highly technical and specialist input, at an early stage, can assist in their resolution.

Litigation & Disputes - I want to say a big thank you for your help, support and advice. I realise that some of this may have felt strange as working in an area one is not familiar with can sometimes appear strange and complex and open up many questions. However I do feel you have embraced my challenge and concerns and presented it in a most professional manner and that is all I could have asked for.
