Our dispute resolution methods

Letters before action

Where you seek legal advice prior to a dispute escalating further, we can assist in swiftly resolving using a letter before action. Our team will closely listen to your concerns and needs and create a well-articulated letter that clearly outlines several factors including the facts of the issue, any relevant contracts and laws, the outcome you are looking for and the time frame you expect to see the dispute resolved.

Constructive negotiation

Where you and another party are looking to have a constructive negotiation meeting in regard to a dispute, we can assist you with the preparation of points that you would like to discuss, as well as act on your behalf during the negotiation. We will clearly set out your position and requirements to the other party, and where applicable, negotiate to find a positive and fair result that satisfies those involved.


Mediation is a commonly used method for dispute resolution. The parties and their solicitors will meet with a trained neutral mediator with expectations to find a result that both parties are content with. An open discussion will be held discussing the issues and the type of resolution each party is looking for.

At Thornton Jones, we have three Resolution accredited mediators who can facilitate a constructive discussion, provide advice on points of law and, where disagreement may arise, we will help to defuse the situation.


Unlike many other firms in the region, we offer arbitration as a means of alternative dispute resolution. Where you want to avoid court litigation but are struggling to find a result that both parties are satisfied with, arbitration is an adequate substitute option.

An individual and unbiased arbitrator will review the arguments presented by both parties and their solicitors and will conclude a decision on what they believe is the best resolution option. Arbitration is legally binding, similar to court proceedings, but without delays and expensive fees. 

Court proceedings

In some situations, disputes may be past the point of resolution through the means of constructive negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. Where this occurs, you can be confident that our solicitors will tirelessly fight your case to achieve an outcome you are happy with. We have helped many prior clients with a range of disputes and have a strong track record of success.

Our dispute resolution solicitors in Tadcaster will assist with preparing the case, ensuring all evidence and arguments are carefully thought out and will represent you in court.
