Litigation can be defined very simply as, the part of a solicitor's practice that deals with court related work. This can include personal injury cases, defamation, large-scale debt collection, and much more. 

At Gearoid Geraghty & Company, we have a department specifically dedicated to the area of litigation. We understand that such cases can be very difficult for our clients and so our solicitors are always at hand to give them the best advice possible. We take instructions as to how we can best represent the particular client's interests. Often a law suit may be necessary and, if so, we have the experience and expertise to advise clients on the best course of action.

We take care to discuss and evaluate with clients all the facts involved. We consider the supporting evidence and any other expertise that may be required such as medical or engineering advice.

Claims can include personal injury matters, property claims and large scale debt collection. Sometimes they proceed to court and are heard in the District Court, the Circuit Court or the High Court, depending on the nature of the claim. It should be noted that in contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
