  • Misrepresentation, title and identity disputes

    Most misrepresentation claims arise from cars which are not what they claim to be, either in condition or history. We can help with a range of issues, from problems with title, through to identity disputes involving the history and provenance of the vehicle and its parts.

  • Restoration disputes

    Whether the work you have asked a restorer to do on your classic car has not been carried out to the desired standard, or you are a restorer who is involved in a dispute with a customer, we can help you to bring or defend a claim.

  • Sales and purchases of classic vehicles

    The purchase or sale of a classic car is often comparable in monetary value to a residential property purchase, or the purchase of a business, yet often purchasers and sellers of valuable vehicles fail to put proper legal protections in place and overlook the importance of due diligence.

    We can help you to draw up contracts, agreements, terms and conditions, making you aware of the potential risks and liabilities you face and keeping your interests protected throughout the transaction.

  • Private number plates

    We can help to resolve problems relating to the ownership and retention of private number plates and registrations.

  • Inheritance disputes around classic cars

    Our highly-regarded inheritance & trust disputes team, also ranked in The Legal 500, can give expert guidance on contentious probate issues around high-value vehicles.

  • Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and mediation

    We always seek to resolve disputes at the earliest stage possible. Although it’s inevitable that some classic car claims will escalate to trial, we have accredited mediators among our team and encourage the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods wherever we can.
