How We Can Help You

Contract Disputes

A contract is an important tool for ensuring two or more parties understand their roles and responsibilities when agreeing a deal. Ordinarily, contracts are enough to avoid any issues, however, there are times when one party may not hold up their side of the bargain or dispute the terms of a contract.

At Shams Williams Solicitors, we regularly help clients resolve a variety of contract disputes, from disagreements between landlords and tenants to conflict with a service provider.

Boundary Disputes

Our homes are one of the most important elements of our lives, so when a dispute arises about what exactly belongs to you or how a piece of land is used, it is easy for tempers to flare. Disputes about boundaries can be very complex to solve but that does not mean you have to fall out with your neighbours.

Our solicitors can help you reach a resolution that is suitable for all parties and allows your home to return to being a place of comfort and calm.

Professional Negligence

When instructing a service provider such as an accountant or builder, it is fair to expect that the work they provide is of a certain standard. Where that standard falls well below what is reasonable, you may be able to make a claim for professional negligence to recover any damages you’ve incurred.

To do so, your claim will need to demonstrate a number of key elements, namely that the provider had a duty of care to you that was not met. Gathering the correct evidence and building a strong case for professional negligence can be complex, but our team is on hand to make the process as simple as possible.
