Disputes and disagreements are a fact of business life and are core elements of owning or occupying property. Resolving these disputes should be approached in an equally businesslike manner; analysing the risks; weighing up the rewards and pursuing hard a result that makes commercial sense.

The Property Litigation Group is one of our leading specialist teams with an excellent reputation. We advise a range of client groups from leading UK property companies, developers, corporate occupiers, investment funds to high net worth individuals.

We regularly participate in court and trial work – including in the Appeal Courts. The size and complexity of the matters undertaken in the team require a commercial and strategic approach.

Having a reputation as being assertive and skilled, we are also experienced negotiators, regularly conducting mediations, arbitrations and other dispute resolution alternatives.

But where litigation is inevitable our clients’ cases are pursued with both vigour and commercialism. Acknowledging the distraction that litigation can be to clients’ core businesses, we are used to working within timetables and budgets.

The Group’s expertise covers the full range of real estate disputes including those relating to:

  • Landlord and Tenant Act 1954
