The firm’s primary concern is to resolve disputes and make recoveries as quickly and advantageously as possible, always weighing the potential outcomes against the costs and risks of litigation.  

The firm represents clients in both the High Court and County Court and where appropriate, uses alternative dispute resolution mechanisms such as mediation to achieve the best solution. 

Clients “cannot speak highly enough” of the team at Maitland Walker, whose advice is “always succinct, yet thorough”.

Our team of litigation solicitors prides itself on consistently providing our individual clients with first-class legal advice and value for money.
