Wellers Hedleys can address any aspect of dispute resolution and we have two very experienced solicitors within our Bookham and East Horsley offices, Phil Jackson and Craig Batko. We also have the expertise of Consultant, Roger Taylor whose work with businesses, parish and town councils and private individuals over the last 40 years often focuses on litigation issues.
We are great believers in alternative dispute resolution, as it is often more cost effective for clients to mediation, arbitration and round table negotiations rather than just rely on taking a case to court. However when it comes to court proceeding we have an exceptional team to support your claim and where appropriate instruct the most suitable Counsel for your case.
Craig Batko qualified as a solicitor in 2001 and offers a wide range of litigation services. He was a partner in his previous firm and decided to join Wellers Hedleys in 2018. Craig has a particular specialism in disputes concerning land and property both residential and commercial. Craig is an expert in landlord and tenant issues, business tenancy renewals, dilapidation claims, boundary disputes and trespass. Craig also has a deep knowledge of trust litigation, especially in relation to Trusts of Land.
Phil Jackson qualified in 1988 and has developed an exceptional breadth of knowledge across many legal disciplines. Despite this wide knowledge base Phil primarily acts as a specialist litigation solicitor. As well as in depth experience of property disputes, he is able to represent you in business issues such as company and shareholder disputes, insolvency, breach of contract and professional negligence.
Our litigation team is supported by Julija Kazlauskaite and Annija Klodza who will always ensure continuity throughout the course of your instruction.
