Fonseca & Partners offer a wide range of litigation advice in relation to civil disputes. Whether you are an individual or a business our solicitors can advise you and deal with litigation matters on your behalf from the commencement of a dispute throughout any court proceedings to the settlement of the matter. We have experience in dealing with a wide range of matters from personal injury and negligence claims to contract and consumer disputes, to disputes over land and probate issues, and to possession proceedings.
We have acted in proceedings in the County Court, Mercantile Court, Technology and Construction Court and the Chancery and Queen’s Bench Divisions of the High Court.
