Going to Court

People often go to court to resolve a dispute not because they want to but because they have to. In those circumstances, it’s important to have the support of experienced solicitors who try to find the quickest and most cost-efficient solution. At Freelands Solicitors, we are committed to protect our clients’ interests and use our vast experience navigating the Scottish court system to help our clients get the best possible result.

Our Litigation Services in Motherwell & Wishaw

Dispute Resolution

At Freelands Solicitors, we’re dedicated to providing honest, practical and effective legal advice aimed at resolving your legal issue in the best way possible. In some cases, the cost and time involved in going to court can be avoided by engaging in alternative methods of dispute resolution, such as arbitration. Whatever matter you are facing, we will lay out all the different methods of resolution that are open to you. If you think dispute resolution away from the courts is a viable option, we will guide you through the process, ensuring your dispute is resolved in a way that is in your best interests.

Commercial and Civil Litigation

Although we have developed a particular specialism in land and property litigation and regularly prepare cases related to title and access, we are highly respected litigation solicitors who have substantial experience in all manner of commercial and civil litigation. We are known for our strategic and effective approach, as well as our commitment to getting the best possible result for our clients. Whatever issue you may be facing, we will protect and enforce your rights thoroughly and forcefully throughout litigation.

Debt recovery

Case flow is vital for all businesses. When this is threatened because a person or business haven’t paid the money they owe, it can have significant consequences. We regularly assist clients recover the debt due to them, including invoice recovery, consumer debts, loans, insolvency situations and other complex disputes. We offer advice on the most effective route for securing payment of the debt as well as the interest on the amount and any additional expenses you’ve incurred. For a quick and efficient solution to debt recovery, please contact us.

Compensation Claims

When we suffer an injury that wasn’t our fault, the law entitles us to hold those responsible to account. This is done by making a claim for compensation for the loss you have suffered as a result of being injured in an accident caused by another person or organisation’s negligence. We regularly help our clients claim the maximum amount of compensation they’re entitled to and have vast experience helping clients who have suffered:

  • accidents at work
  • road traffic accidents;
  • slips, trips and falls;
  • medical and dental negligence.

If someone or an organisation has caused you or a loved one to suffer an injury, please contact us to find out whether a compensation claim can be made.

Criminal Proceedings

When charged with a crime, it’s vital to instruct a criminal defence solicitor who will make sure your rights are protected and robustly scrutinise the prosecution’s case against you. The sooner this is done the better, because the right criminal defence solicitor can make all the difference as to what the eventual outcome will be.

At Freelands Solicitors, we have vast experience defending our clients in criminal proceedings. We regularly conduct trials and court appearances, ensuring the allegations made against our clients in the Sheriff and High Courts are thoroughly challenged. Amongst other things, we have developed expertise in respect of driving offences and have had great success defending clients accused of dangerous or careless driving and drink and drug related offences.

Whatever criminal matter you or loved one may be facing, please contact us as soon as possible.
