Our property litigation solicitors act on a wide variety of issues for both individuals and businesses. We represent well-known household names, government departments and charities, with extensive property portfolios of different types of premises, as well as for individuals with just one property.

We recognise that whatever the size of your business, or the extent of your property interests, you need a speedy, cost effective solution to your problem.

We regularly appear in courts throughout the country on our clients behalf, but recognise that ADR and mediation as well as a firm but fair dialogue with the other party have an important part to play in resolving the dispute.

We understand the stress that can be caused by property related disputes. Our objective is to establish how best to resolve the problem in a manner that is both acceptable to you and achievable, minimising both the expense and the disruption to your life or business.
