Lawyers for dispute resolution across Kent

Wellers Reece-Jones provides expert litigation services to clients in Sevenoaks and the surrounding areas of Kent, East and West Sussex. We have earned a reputation for providing a London-level litigation service without the exorbitant ticket price that is typically attached to lawyers working in the capital.

Our commercial litigation and dispute resolution department is headed up by Jonathan Tyler, one of the leading litigation specialists currently working in Kent:

In this time of commercial and economic uncertainty, many of our clients are needing advice regarding the impact of coronavirus on their business. The Coronavirus Act 2020 has provided emergency legislation to govern issues which have arisen for businesses as a result. This covers a variety of areas, some of which may affect the running of your business. We can advise on the impact of the Act on your business as well as the rights and remedies under business contracts relating to breach, delay and force majeure and can assist with debt recovery, business interruption issues and claims, contract review and advice as well as employment issues. So if you have any concerns or issues, please do let us know.

Jonathan Tyler: Jonathan has vast experience working in commercial litigation cases, particularly those involving property. He acts for commercial landlords and tenants, businesses and individuals. He marries a client-focused and pragmatic approach with a real understanding of when to litigate. This means that while he is always ready take a robust approach at the right time, he also recognises that sometimes alternative dispute resolution can be more appropriate.

Bringing longstanding experience of city law firms to Wellers Reece-Jones, Jonathan knows that, as a solicitor, you can never make assumptions about the needs of clients or their objectives. He believes wholeheartedly in the importance of strong communication alongside realistic management of expectations.
