Property Disputes & Litigation Solicitors

If a dispute arises in connection with one of your commercial properties, we know that you want it resolved as speedily as possible through expert and experienced advice.

We can help you. Our Litigation team has a wealth of experience in property disputes. Our clients include a wide range of residential and commercial landlords from individuals to companies and institutions, all of whom value our clear, thorough and cost-effective advice. We can liaise seamlessly with your surveyor and other experts to ensure that your problem is resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible.

In many cases, our experienced litigators can facilitate communication or mediation between the parties and thereby avoid costly court action. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. If these routes fail, however, we have the experience of handling proceedings in the County Court and High Court as well as at the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal, the Lands Tribunal, the Adjudicator to HM Land registry and at arbitration.
