Civil Law

The Civil Law practitioners at Church Court Chambers have extensive experience at all levels of civil jurisdiction in the County Court, High Courts and the Court of Appeal. Also in formal negotiations, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediations and Arbitrations.

The Civil Procedure Rules and commencing civil litigation is complex. A preliminary conference to assess the Issues, Merits of Success and Pre-action Protocols is often helpful.

Our practitioners draft Pleadings, Advise on factual or expert evidence required, assist with Costs and Case Management calculations and appear at Interim Hearings all of which can be instrumental to a successful outcome and judgment on costs for the client. Working together with solicitors through the various stages of litigation enhance the prospects of success if the case is not settled and proceeds to a well-prepared hearing.

Chambers have represented high profile companies and internationally recognised brands and contributed to leading authorities. Our aim is to provide an efficient and cost-effective service to our client.
