During the preparations for a court hearing, Aristone Solicitors remains committed to seeking a resolution outside of court whenever feasible. Our litigation team recognises that this approach often serves the best interests of our clients.

Nobody desires the financial and emotional burden of a costly court case, regardless of whether the client represents a large corporation, a small or medium-sized enterprise, or an individual. At Aristone Solicitors, our litigation teams approaches each case with equal dedication and determination, aiming to attain the most efficient and budget-friendly solution for our clients.


Contract Law constitutes a foundational element of legal systems worldwide, with contracts encompassing nearly every facet of our lives, from recreational activities like golf to the operations of businesses, ranging in value from small sums to substantial millions.

As a consequence of the ubiquity of contracts, disputes inevitably arise. The most effective means to prevent disputes is by crafting meticulously worded contracts to eliminate any potential ambiguity. Nevertheless, disputes can still emerge, and in such instances, the resolution often hinges on court intervention.

A significant portion of the court’s caseload is dedicated to adjudicating contract disputes. Typically, minor contract disputes find resolution in lower civil courts, such as the County Court, while more intricate and costly contract disputes are brought before the High Court.

Options for Financing Litigation.

The general practice is that the party that loses a legal case will be responsible for covering the legal expenses of both parties involved. However, it’s important to note that this rule is not absolute.

We charge our fees based on standard hourly rates, calculated according to the time spent on the matter, in addition to disbursements and applicable VAT.

For certain litigation cases, we might explore the possibility of deferring payment until specific proceeds are generated or the case reaches its conclusion. This funding approach can prove especially beneficial in contentious trust and probate matters, where funds are entangled within the deceased individual’s estate.

It is standard practice to provide clients with ongoing cost updates at various stages of a case. However, in certain situations, we can offer clients cost certainty through options such as fixed fees or setting a cap on potential fees incurred.

Litigation funding is a mechanism where a professional investor covers all the expenses associated with a legal case, including any potential costs awarded against the litigant, in exchange for a portion of the eventual proceeds.

A contract under which we will bill you at a reduced rate, or in some cases, not bill you at all if your case does not succeed. In the event of a successful case, regular fees apply along with an additional “success fee.” This funding arrangement is commonly referred to as a “no win, no fee” agreement, and the success fee is capped at 100% of our base costs.

A contract in which we agree to receive a portion of the awarded damages, whether through a settlement or after a trial, instead of our standard fees. In personal injury cases, this percentage is capped at 25% of the damages and for all other cases, the cap is set at 50%. These percentages encompass all associated expenses, including any fees due to a barrister and VAT.

Before the Event (“BTE”) insurance is a policy that offers coverage for potential future legal issues. This coverage might be included in existing insurance policies such as household contents, motor vehicle, or travel insurance. It can also be a benefit provided by banks, credit card providers, employers, or trade unions. We frequently assist clients who have Directors and Officers (D&O) liability insurance. These policies often come with limitations in terms of coverage, but it’s always advisable to review and communicate with the relevant insurer. We are ready to review your insurance policies to help determine if you have suitable coverage.

Frequently Asked Questions

A breach of contract takes place when one or more contract parties fail to meet their contractual obligations or adhere to the specified terms and conditions of the agreement.

Contract breaches are categorised as follows:

  1. Minor breach of contract: In this scenario, a breach of one or more terms occurs, but it is of such minor consequence that the rest of the contract can still be executed. The affected party can seek damages but typically cannot terminate the agreement.
  2. Material breach of contract: This involves multiple breaches or a breach that strikes at the core of the contract, rendering it impossible to perform. In such cases, the contract may be terminated, and damages can be pursued.
  3. Anticipatory breach of contract: If one party notifies the other that they cannot fulfil some or all of their contractual obligations, it may lead to contract termination, and the injured party can seek damages.

We provide fixed standard fees for a select number of services, which are specified on our rates page. For other matters, the specific needs of the case will determine both the seniority of our team and the time required. We provide an estimate of these costs in a consultation with your solicitor.

  1. Damages – to reimburse you for any monetary losses incurred due to the breach.
  2. Specific performance – a directive for the other party to fulfil their contractual obligations.
  3. Rescission – the restoration of both parties to their pre-contractual state.
  4. Injunctions – an order instructing the other party to take a particular action or refrain from certain actions.
  1. Confirm the existence of a legally valid contract and identify the breach details.
  2. Attempt to address the breach through telephone or email communication.
  3. If informal resolution attempts prove ineffective, seek guidance from our seasoned Litigation Solicitors.
  4. A solicitor will promptly assess the strength of your case and advise on the practicality of pursuing the breach. It’s important to recognise that solicitors are also business professionals, and their guidance is centred on safeguarding your utmost interests.
