Department Information

This content is provided by Mishcon de Reya LLP.


As a Property Litigation Group, we have earned a reputation as one of London's largest and best specialist teams. Unlike other leading firms, we are equally at home advising high net worth individuals as we are leading UK property companies, developers, corporate occupiers, and investment funds. The property litigation lawyers in our team regularly participate in court and trial work, including in the Appeal Courts. The size and complexity of the matters not only requires commercial and strategic acumen but the ability to handle the often significant media interest.

Recognised as assertive, highly skilled litigators, our team are also renowned negotiators, regularly conducting mediations, arbitrations and other dispute resolution alternatives. However, where litigation is inevitable we pursue your case with vigour and commercialism in equal measure.

Understanding the distraction that litigation can be to a client’s core businesses, we are very comfortable working within timetables and budgets.
