Overview

With one of the largest property litigation practices in the UK, we are able to assist you in all areas of landlord and tenant litigation, and in any real estate dispute.

Our clients include household names in the retail and leisure sectors, investment landlords, developers of both commercial and residential land, local authorities, and other public bodies. We also act for individuals who are landlords of residential properties.

We will work with you - and with your other professional advisers - to resolve any property dispute as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. We are able to offer innovative pricing solutions and fixed fee structures for repeat instructions where appropriate.

We can provide early advice on a potentially contentious matter or early negotiations, right through to proceedings. We regularly work with alternative dispute resolution providers such as mediators, experts and arbitrators to find solutions that works for you. But if proceedings are necessary, we will 'fight your corner' in presenting a robust case to the court or tribunal. We adapt our approach to the individual case, developing a strategy to best meet your commercial aims in the most cost and time efficient way.

We provide a ‘cradle to grave’ service for our clients, whatever their concern.
