How to sue a company or person in the UK

Litigation is the main way for people and businesses to resolve their disputes in the UK. There are other ways (known as ‘alternative dispute resolution’ (ADR)), such as arbitration, mediation and expert determination, but litigation is most common, particularly for large commercial disputes.

But between the various countries within the UK (between Scotland, England & Wales and Northern Ireland) the rules and procedures for litigating are different – and indeed Solicitors in one ‘jurisdiction’ usually don’t have ‘rights of audience’ (i.e. ability to appear in court) in the other jurisdictions.

Your Solicitor is best placed to advise on the best course of action as to where, who and how to sue.

What can you sue for in the UK?

You can sue for many things – claims can be in respect of any the following and more:-
