Hannah is a senior associate in our property litigation department. Hannah has specialised in property related disputes since qualification and therefore has a broad range of experience in a wide variety of matters. She acts for a diverse range of clients across a number of sectors.  

Hannah’s key areas of expertise include lease renewals (hostile and non-hostile); dilapidations; rent arrears and service charge disputes; possession claims; and tortious claims including damage to property by reason of trespass and/or nuisance. Hannah’s clients include household name retailers, schools, councils, NHS trusts, investor landlords and private individuals. Acting for both landlords and tenants enables Hannah to provide strategic and effective advice.  

Whilst Hannah deals with a number of contentious matters, she advises clients in relation to alternative dispute resolution and settlement wherever possible in order to reach a swift and commercial conclusion.
