Mackarness & Lunt provide prompt and cost-effective solutions that resolve contentious matters. We advise our clients about a variety of options that do not always involve the traditional court process with a view to resolving matters without the additional stress and cost of court proceedings.
We firmly believe that anyone over 18 who has a bank account…a car…life insurance… pension… a house … investments… a business… anything of value should think about making a Will. Mackarness & Lunt have particular expertise advising in situations where there are complex family, property or business arrangements.
However if court action is necessary, our clients can be confident in the expertise of Mackarness & Lunt to provide representation at all levels of proceedings. We can advise about the following dispute types:

  • Recovery of Debts and Assets
  • Commercial Disputes
  • Property Disputes
  • Contentious Trust and Probate Matters
  • Landlord and Tenant Disputes
  • At Mackarness & Lunt we have good connections with other professionals to assist our clients. For example we have a trusted enquiry agent to locate debtors where they have moved and not provided a forwarding address.

    Where someone who owes you money has been declared bankrupt, we can liaise with the Trustee in Bankruptcy or Insolvency practitioner on your behalf, to ensure your claim is dealt with appropriately.

    We act for those bringing or defending claims but are unable to offer any form of Legal Aid or conditional fees. In most circumstances, we offer a no-obligation fixed fee initial consultation at a cost of £200 plus VAT. This is an opportunity for you to discuss with us your particular circumstances so that we can advise you about the next steps.

    If you would like to arrange a meeting or have any queries please contact Samantha Small.
