Real Estate Litigation

Our clients include owners of urban and rural estates, property developers and investors, and commercial, retail and residential occupiers. We act for both landlords and tenants in property litigation, with a strong reputation for enfranchisement, large estates, commercial property and high value residential property.

Few people enjoy litigation, however, it cannot always be avoided. If our clients’ property rights need enforcing we are there to do so, and we have taken cases all the way to the highest court in the land if necessary. Often the key is to look beyond the obvious immediate point of dispute and to assess where a client’s long term strategic interests lie.

Much of the skill in this area of law is about getting the right result without having to go to court. We are here to guide our clients in all the ways in which their property interests may be challenged. This may be clearing sites for development, managing consents to assign or alter under a lease; service charge challenges; dilapidations at the end of a lease or disrepair during the currency of a lease. When litigation is required it will be hard fought.

Equally, however, the right case can be solved by mediation or direct negotiation. If we are consulted early enough, court proceedings can often be avoided. A big part of what we do is working strategically with the other teams in real estate to spot the issues early on, tackle them and find a way to achieve our clients’ long term aims. The right result at the right time.
