Our Services

Litigation and Dispute Resolution

If you are seeking litigation and dispute resolution advice we have the team, the skills and extensive experience necessary to assist you.  We deal with all types of commercial and civil work for companies and private clients alike, including handling cases involving breach of contract, negligence, consumer protection, landlord and tenant, professional negligence, fraud, breach of fiduciary duties, partnership disputes, boundary disputes, contested inheritance and trust matters and also debt collection.

Our litigation work has grown exponentially over the past few years. We regularly deal with complex and often high value commercial cases.  In contentious matters, tactics are often as important as legal knowledge. Sometimes it is better to avoid the courts altogether, but where legal action is necessary, we are able to bring a claim or defend cases and conduct any appeals which may arise.

Having a strong litigation team on your side is an invaluable asset.  At Knocker & Foskett we offer pragmatic solutions based on solid, expert advice and enable clients to weigh up the risks or rewards in pursuing any proposed action.  We provide practical and robust advice to help resolve commercial and individual disputes and aim to protect our client's position, including all aspects of Alternative Dispute Resolution which is of paramount importance in this area of law.

Finian was a fantastic help throughout the whole process and has always been great with anything we have needed help with, an asset to you.
I have been using Knocker & Foskett as my legal representation for over a decade across a wide range of disciplines including corporate work, employment strategy, will writing and conveyancing and have found their services and advice to be outstanding. Best of all each individual works very much as part of the overall team – this ensures the most appropriate route to success using the experiences and acumen of many. I have no hesitation in recommending Knocker & Foskett to you as a truly professional and caring legal business.
Chris acted for me in a hard fought dispute. Without his skill, knowledge and sure, economical, effective and friendly advice I know we would not have been as successful as we were. I commend him most highly.
I cannot recommend Knocker and Foskett too highly. They have been our solicitors for many decades, and in all that time we have always received a service that is both highly professional but also personal, coupled with a clear understanding of the ethos of our company. Crises have been handled with efficiency, speed, and calmness and always there is the willingness 'to go the extra mile' to help in any situation. I am also constantly surprised by the modesty of their invoices.
Chris approaches his clients in an open and friendly manner, viewing the litigation process as a partnership between himself and his clients rather than as a purely commercial endeavour. I feel that he truly cares about achieving the optimal solution for those he represents.  His approach to litigation is also eminently sensible and diligent, and he was always willing to go beyond what would reasonably be expected in order to achieve the desired solution; to say that Chris is extremely hard-working and effective would not do justice to the lengths he goes to on behalf of his clients.  Above all I always felt that Chris would offer clients the advice that was in their best interest even if that meant giving a client advice that they may not wish to hear, this was a great comfort to me as it allowed me to maintain confidence that the course of action I was taking was correct. Having undertaken complex and high value litigation in conjunction with Chris I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any prospective clients.
