Strengths

Jonathan Seitler QC
Continues to be considered one of the top property litigation silks at the Bar. He frequently handles a broad caseload of high-profile, complex real estate disputes. He is particularly prized for his superior level of expertise in tricky appellate cases and is often at the forefront of establishing new points of law in the area.
"Technically excellent, accessible and a joy to work with." "He is now the leading practitioner in the field and is highly sought after by solicitors and clients directly." "One of the best advocates operating in the real estate sector, he is unique in finding angles on difficult questions and turning complex arguments into deceptively simple submissions."
Recent work: Acted in the Court of Appeal in No. 1 West India Quay v East Tower Apartments, a case which addressed the question of when a landlord can reasonably withhold consent to an assignment of a lease.
