Whether you wish to sue someone or you are being sued by someone else, our team at Odysseus Chambers is prepared to offer legal advice on the strength of your claim or defence and can help with a variety of legal disputes.
We are prepared to deal with several types of litigation matters including but not limited to:

In jump starting your litigation process, you must first determine the value of your claim. Claims amounting to TT$50,000.00 or less are referred to the Petty Civil Claims Court at the Magistrates’ Court while claims amounting above TT$50,000.00 are initiated at the High Court of Justice.
One of the most crucial parts of the litigation process takes place at the very beginning whereby your Attorney will issue a pre-action protocol letter to the other party or parties involved outlining your grievance and requesting that the legal dispute be resolved before legal action is initiated. We at Odysseus Chambers can manage your matter from its pre-action stage all the way to trial while providing ongoing legal advice throughout the litigation process.
Litigation is just one of the avenues for resolving legal disputes. Our team at Odysseus Chambers is prepared to explore all options available in getting disputes resolved in the most amicable manner possible before resorting to court proceedings.
