Overview

Penningtons Manches' real estate litigation team provides expert advice on the full range of real estate disputes and specialist guidance on landlord & tenant matters. Our lawyers' broad technical knowledge is complemented by their extensive practical experience.

Acting for landlords & tenants allows us to understand the key concerns and priorities of the other parties. We often represent clients in issues involving more than one jurisdiction.

Our clients range from investment managers with large and varied real estate portfolios to office occupiers and retailers, as well as charities and individuals with smaller portfolios. We also act for housing associations, residential landlords & tenants.

We have a strong track record in devising strategies to avoid disputes developing and in resolving those that do occur as cost effectively as possible. This includes a detailed knowledge of all forms of dispute resolution ranging from small scale mediations and adjudication to full blown arbitration and litigation, in the UK and internationally.

We recognise that major disputes absorb significant resources in terms of time and money. Accordingly and where appropriate to the business needs of clients, we use a range of ADR techniques, such as expert determination, mediation and arbitration.
