property dispute resolution


A company’s property is one of its most important assets, yet premises are rarely the core focus of a business. Time spent dealing with lengthy disputes can detract from key commercial priorities.

Our UK team, led by three nationally recognised real estate litigation partners, advises on all property litigation-related issues including property portfolio management matters for both landlord and tenants such as lease renewals, tenant default and high value and complex dilapidations claims. We also have extensive experience in property development matters such as notices to complete, site clearance, easements, restrictive covenants and overage claims.

Our team understands property management issues and disputes from your perspective; we protect your position, whether you are a landlord, tenant, developer or someone with an interest over another’s land. Our partner-led approach ensures that we deliver a high quality bespoke service and solutions which are commercially-focused and tailored to clients’ needs and objectives - externally recognised by Chambers 2017.
