At Van Eaton Solicitors in Streatham, we are skilled and successful civil litigation solicitors. We understand that if you are facing a civil claim for damages or considering making a claim, you may be uncertain about what is involved and you will be anxious about the financial consequences of court action.
The prospect of court proceedings often leads to high emotions and strongly held convictions. With clear and concise advice, we reduce unnecessary stress and worry. If we think you can resolve a dispute through alternative dispute resolution such as mediation, we will tell you.
Helping You Make An Informed Decision
We will always represent you proactively, but at Van Eaton Solicitors, we will never risk a speculative action that has little chance of success. Our advice to you will be objective and even-handed, enabling you to make a fully informed decision about how to proceed.
We can analyse your claim and work to settle your civil dispute efficiently and effectively. Our civil litigation team will work with you to achieve the best results that suit you, without the need for court proceedings.
We handle most types of civil and professional negligence claims, including:
- Breach of contract — We act for individuals and small businesses in contract disputes. All contracts are different — some will be unwritten and others will be the result of long-standing and informal business dealings. Our experience means that we can quickly assess the terms of the contract and advise you of your legal standing. We examine each contract on a case-by-case basis, so our advice to you will be tailored to your individual situation.
- Defamation and slander — We advise individuals on how to protect their good name and manage their reputation.
- Wrongful and malicious prosecution claims — Have you ever been mistreated by the Police either during arrest, detention or search of your premises? We pursue compensation claims against the police when a prosecution has been made without reasonable cause.
- Trust law disputes — We are experienced civil litigation solicitors. Our team can handle trust claims on behalf of individuals who believe they are entitled to a share in a property when that interest has not been officially recorded.
