    I called to get some documents certified, the ladies on reception were so helpful. I am very happy with the service I received and will use Versus Law again.

    Dealt with my flight claim hassle free and super quick, I was continuously updated every step of the way and overall really pleased with the outcome. A personal thank you to Anita as she couldn’t have made it easier for me and saw through any problems I had!

  • Richard

    I purchased my first home in February, and used Versus as my solicitor. I dealt with Natalie Moylan from start to finish, who was excellent throughout. The purchase ended up being delayed and resulted in a quite hectic finish, but Natalie remained calm and professional at all times, whilst providing a very high quality of work. My thanks to Natalie and her team, for making a long purchase so much easier!

  • C Savage

    We were selling our house (through Nick) and buying a house (through Natalie) and I can honestly say these are the best solicitors we’ve ever used (we had always used ones in London previously). They both kept us informed on a regular basis as to how things were progressing which I really valued and they were quick to respond to any queries I asked. They were professional, efficient, helpful and really nice to deal with. We were recommended Versus through local friends that have used them previously and I would definitely recommend Versus to anyone else asking me for a recommendation.
    Thanks again Natalie and Nick.

  • J Percy

    We used Nicola Nolan for our purchase/transfer of ownership. She was excellent from start to finish. We were fully informed of the process throughout and she was always friendly, approachable and very professional at all times. Would definitely recommend her at Versus Law. Thank you again

  • J Guntren

    Amazing law firm for conveyancing!! My wife and I made an offer on a house 24th September and we were moved in by 20th December. It should also be noted that we were selling my wife’s apartment at the same time (also using Versus), further complicating everything. Thanks to Natalie, everything was done in a very efficient manner and she was very understanding of our situation.

  • J Williams

    From the moment we rung Versus Law and spoke to the receptionist on the phone to the moment we completed on our first home, Versus Law were excellent. Our solicitor was Tom and not only did he keep us updated every step of the way but he was very professional, efficient, offered valuable advice and made the process of buying a house stress free. We couldn’t recommend Versus Law enough and we just wanted to say a huge thank you to Tom and the team. Joe and Kara

  • H Cooper

    We would highly recommend Versus law, especially Nick Wintrip (selling) and Nicola Nolan (buying). They both kept us up to date throughout the whole process. They were easy to get hold of and were very prompt to answer any questions/email. We would have no hesitation in recommending Versus law for conveyancing.

  • M Long

    From start to finish Versus Law have been professional and helpful. Tom Reid was always available to talk to us and gave us updates regularly meaning we did not have to constantly chase up matters. We are very happy by the service and would recommend to anyone looking for a reliable solicitor.

  • Jill T

  • Danielle

    Excellent service from start to finish from Nicola and Natalie! Super responsive to emails and all my questions as a first time single buyer. Natalie and Nicola make a great team and are so approachable. Definitely recommend them for property related legal services.

  • Frankie

    Really happy with my experience using versus law, from start to finish they put my mind at ease as I wasn’t buying a house in the normal way, it was through a family divorce and there were time scales and dead lines to meet, versus law managed to conker my mortgage and speed things up to avoid any extra costs, nicola was always there to ease my mind when I had any concerns as things do get stressful whilst purchasing a property, the ladies on the reception we also a delight and couldn’t do more to make you feel comfortable in any situation, if you are thinking of using versus law to assist you through your mortgage then look no further as these guys couldn’t have done more for me, I couldn’t have been happier with my experience

  • Matt W

    Nicola Nolan’s conveyancing service has always been excellent, I have used them several times in the last 5 years. In particular for my business I have found their relationship and understanding of Paragon Bank to be very useful. I would highly recommend.

  • Kay

    Excellent decision to go with Versus Law! Nick Wintrip handled the very stressful job of our house sale with professionalism, calmness and a good sense of humour. We did everything via email, phone and post, and he was always quick in responding and keeping me updated every step of the way. Very competitively priced too. I would highly recommend Versus Law without the slightest hesitation.

  • O Li

    Thomas Reid dealt with the sale and purchase of our properties. He was a pleasure to work with – very quick to respond to queries and very efficient in his work. As a result, the process went very smoothly with minimal delays. I would highly recommend competitively priced Versus Law and especially the professionalism of Thomas Reid.

  • Nasir

    Versus Law dealt with my house sale from start to finish in a most professional manner. A friendly, professional, competent team who get the job done within the time parameters. I highly recommend this firm.

  • Colin and Yvonne

    Absolutely brilliant service as always.
    This is the third time using Versuslaw and they never fail to impress. Natalie and Nicola are real diamonds and you really get the sense that they actually care about you.

    We actually live in London, but continued to use them for our London property because of our previous experience with them.
    Thank you guys, would highly recommend you to anyone.

  • B Man

    Excellent service!!! We are really happy with the service VersusLaw provided to us. Being first time buyer, we dint have much idea about the whole process and had lots of questions. They have given proper and clear response on time to everything we have requested. For us, one of the property got cancelled in between the process because the owner decided to not to sell that property few days after accepting our offer. Though there were searches and procedures done already for that property VersusLaw did not ask Fee for that purchase as they understood the difficult situation we were in. When we found our next property, we had no doubt whom to contact. We are really happy and totally satisfied by the service Nicola, Natalie and their team offered. We will highly recommend your service to anyone,

  • Ross Grant

    Today I have completed on the purchase of my very first apartment, and it just wouldn’t have been possible without the INCREDIBLE knowledge, guidance and GENUINE care of Nicola, Natalie, and the entire Versus Law team.

    This purchase was far from straightforward, with lots of potential pitfalls – all navigated with professionalism, patience and an impeccable attention to detail by Nicola.

    Nic went well above and beyond the call of duty to look into some extremely complex accounts and repair budgets to the apartment block in question – something I would have completely overlooked.

    As a result, with her guidance, I managed to negotiate a £2,000 reduction in asking price – something I’m sure other solicitors would have let slip through the net.

    That’s a genuine £2000 saving – a lot of money for a first-time buyer.

    You get a real sense that these guys actually CARE – they make you feel more like a friend, than a client – and don’t leave a stone unturned when it comes to conveyancing. If there is anything to uncover on a property, trust me, Nicola will find it!

    In essence, Versus Law made what could have been a rather stressful situation, easy and straightforward.

    Communications and response times were brilliant, with daily updates coming via phone and email – and I never felt rushed by anyone when I had queries.

    I honestly cannot recommend Versus Law enough.

    I’m going to pick up the keys to my apartment now – and won’t be using anyone other than these guys for all future property purchases/ sales.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH Versus Law – I’ll be raising a glass of champagne to you all at the housewarming! 🙂

  • CW

    Great service provided by Nicola and her team.
    Always communicating with updates for the completion of my property.
    Would highly recommend

  • Jackie

    I used Versus Law to buy my first house. Had no idea how it worked but I must say that the conveyancing team held my hand all the way through. On the day of completion there was a delay and they stayed in office late to ensure it went through so I wasn’t waiting over the weekend. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Versus Law and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. It was nice to speak to people who I felt cared for me and put my interests first at all times. Thank you so much for your help

  • Andy

    Versus were great to deal with when they provided the conveyancing for my house purchase. I was able to complete the process without needing to physically travel to their offices and my solicitor was always available for any questions when I was completing all the paperwork. Everyone was very friendly to speak to.

  • T Baguley

    Fantastic conveyancing service from Nicola and Natalie, they kept on top of everything from start to finish and were always available whenever we had questions. I’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.

  • David JC

    Very impressed with every aspect of Versus Law, from service they provide to the attitude of the staff. Always called back when they said they would and had a laugh with them too. Will definately use again (if I need to).

  • Mrs Morris

    I would recommend Versus Law to anyone, particularly Nick Wintrip, who looked after us extremely well. They are very efficient and communicated with us fully at all times. We were able to contact them by phone and e mail and did not need to rely on letter going back and forth. Nick is really friendly too and put us at ease throughout the end to end sales process. Thank you.

  • Tanita

    Nicola and Natalie did a wonderful job. They were friendly and patient. Answered my many many questions and got the job done very efficiently. I am highly impressed and would definitely recommend them.

Consumer Law & Group Litigation

We at Versus Law are committed to fighting for consumer rights whenever an injustice has occurred. As consumers, we expect and have a right that the service we receive should be as promised or product we buy should perform as advertised.

In recent years, there has been increased media coverage leading to a heightened awareness amongst consumers of the rights that they have in law.  The PPI mis-selling scandal is probably the most well-known example of this, with banks and financial companies paying out over £20 billion in compensation to millions of customers who had been mis-sold PPI.

We are here to assist consumers to enforce these rights and seek justice against the unscrupulous actions of providers of services or goods.  Whether you are an individual or a group, we are here to help you.  Initially, you may feel that you are alone but once we are able to investigate your issue in more detail, it may become apparent that there are other individuals in the same situation as you.

A class action or group litigation was synonymous with large US law firms and you may have seen TV shows such as suits or LA law (if you are old enough) glamorising such cases.  The litigation procedure in the UK is different to its US counterpart and group litigation is dealt with in part 19 of the civil procedure rules.  In the US, there is a system of ‘opt out’ class actions where claimants are included in a claim automatically unless they opt out.  In the UK, group litigation is dealt with on an ‘opt in’ basis.  This means exactly what it says, in that every claimant must individually make their own claim. Unless each claimant is specifically included within the claim, they will not be entitled to participate in the litigation or be awarded any damages.

Part 19 of the civil procedure rules governs how a claim or claims forming the group litigation are managed, with specific rules applying.  There are a number of advantages of a group litigation order over a normal multi-claimant action. Firstly, all of the claims relating to that issue must be commenced in the court that makes the group litigation order. This avoids multiple proceedings in different courts and ensures the outcome is consistent across all of the individual cases. There are also publication provisions, making it easier for potential claimants to join their claims into the action. Usually, there will be a cut-off date before which claims should be made. This also encourages potential claimants to join the action at the earliest date. It is therefore important to join a group action earlier rather than later.

Once a group litigation order is made and all of the individual claimants have been listed on a group register, the issues can be considered by the court. Any judgement on any issue will be binding on all other claims on the group register, unless the court considers that this should not happen. In order to decide certain issues, a lead or test case may be used.

As with many types of litigation, the usual costs rule is that the losing party pays. This is also the case with group litigation orders but again there are advantages in pursuing an action as a group.  The individual costs liability is ring fenced, so that a claimant is not exposed to the total costs of the action, but rather will be liable for its individual costs and severally liable for an equal share of the common costs of pursuing the action. In most cases, we are able to offer a conditional fee agreement (or no win no fee agreement) for pursuing your case, meaning that you will not have to pay us at all if your case is lost. If your case is successful, we will be able to recover some or all of our legal fees from the defendant. Under this type of agreement, we commonly charge a success fee which will be paid from any damages recovered up to a certain percentage. We try to keep our funding arrangements as competitive as possible and believe this is extremely important because there should be complete transparency between us.

If the action does not succeed, then under a group litigation order a claimant is severally liable to pay an equal share of any adverse costs are awarded. In some group litigation orders, the court has considered and recognised that the various claimants involved have differing economic interests. For example some claimants may have a much smaller claim than other claimants in the same action. In those circumstances, a court may exercise its discretion so that each claimant’s contribution to common costs and their liability for adverse costs is commensurate to their claim size. It is also possible to obtain insurance to protect you from the possibility of paying adverse costs.  We understand that this is an extremely important part of the decision-making process and are able to call upon our network of insurance providers to facilitate this so that for our clients, the risk is reduced.

Group litigation is still quite rare in England and Wales. Since 2012, only 14 cases have been commenced this way. We have a knowledgeable team who can assist claimants with this complex area. Additionally, we are able to work with other firms involved and collectively obtain the best possible result.

Our website details the current group litigation we are involved in. If you believe you are affected, please contact us using the form and we will assess your case.

In June 2018, the KBA adjudged that Daimler had used software which altered diesel emissions. Mercedes was requested to recall all affected vehicles and the German courts also found that Daimler had installed a cheat device in many of its vehicles.
