What are internet disputes?

Do you have an online business and are you looking for a solicitor who acts for Amazon Sellers, eBay Sellers and is familiar with Amazon Brand Registry, online protection of intellectual trademarks and passing off issues.

Although “internet law” is probably not a thing, over the years I have helped a significant number of clients who have an online business, or whose disputes have gone online.

Internet disputes are any disputes which involve the online world. I’ve helped a famous Sports Club in removing unauthorised videos from Youtube, Facebook and other social media. I’ve helped people in Social Media disputes, mostly which are based on defamation.

Copyright infringement claims can occur often online, where both whole websites and pages from websites have been copied by another party, and I can provide legal advice on these matter.

I’ve also been involved in Domain Name disputes, including Nominet and ICANN and can help you if your domain has been stolen, or another business is using a similar or confusing domain name.

Why use me as an Internet Disputes Lawyer?

Steven Mather is a very experienced litigation solicitor. I have dealt with hundreds of disputes, from a few thousand pounds up to multi-million pound disputes.

  • Letter of Claim / Letter before action
  • Issuing or defending a claim either in High Court or County Court
  • Exploring settlement eg via mediation
  • Preparing for trial
  • Winning*
  • Enforcement of a CCJ

* In the interests of transparency, I don’t always win, but I like winning and I want to get you the very best result possible. Rest assured, I will fight your corner every step of the way.

How much do internet disputes cost?

There is quite a wide range in costs, as it depends on the value, complexity and other party’s actions. The following costs are estimates only and do not include disbursements such as Court Fees, Experts or Barristers costs. You will be given a bespoke estimate or fixed fee when we discuss your case.

A Letter of Claim on an internet dispute is likely to cost between £150-1000 plus VAT.

A claim in Court could vary in cost from perhaps £5,000 plus VAT to £150,000 plus VAT, depending on the complexity, issues, size of claim and other factors.
