Dispute Resolution and Civil Litigation

Don’t let a dispute get out of hand. We will steer you towards a successful resolution

Small Claims

This is generally for claims of £10,000 or less (£5,000 before April 2013). We can help you at any stage in this process. We can advise you on the strength of your claim or defence and help you prepare your witness statement or documentation in support of your case.

Debt Recovery

We offer a full debt collection service to all clients, be they commercial or private.

Possession Proceedings

We are regularly instructed by both Landlord and Tenants in relation to residential possession proceedings at all stages of the process.


At Barrett and Co we can guide you through this often stressful process at what can be a difficult time for you or your business.

Building Work Disputes

Investing in your property in or near Reading? Do not rely on word of mouth agreements, get a binding contract. Barrett & Co provide professional legal advice for any building dispute or planning and architect agreement.

Pay as you go Litigation Legal Services

Instructing solicitors to conduct litigation can be expensive so we have introduced a new way of limiting the cost. We want to make it as easy as possible to get the advice that you need for a price you can afford.
