Real estate is relevant to everyone, and when a dispute arises, I enjoy working with clients to achieve a positive outcome for something which is so fundamental.
It’s also a complex part of the law, so I’ll steer you through it and find a resolution that works with your aims and objectives.
As part of the Real Estate Dispute Resolution team, I help commercial landlords and tenants, PLCs, SMEs, investors and developers with a wide range of real estate dispute resolution issues, including lease renewals, dilapidations, option notices, break notices, possession, adverse possession, recovery of rent arrears, lease termination, boundary disputes and rights of way. I, as a dispute resolution solicitor, aim to settle problems and further your goals, and have acted for clients in the retail, construction, transport and public sector. I tailor my advice to suit your organisation and provide timely help when you need it most.
Cases can be won or lost on evidence, so if you think a dispute will arise, collate key documents and correspondence, and keep records of key conversations.
You don’t want to be throwing good money after bad, so always consider the cost/benefit analysis.
How long will it take?
We cannot guarantee a timeframe as every case is different and we cannot predict how a matter will unfold. Where possible, we will always give you an indication of timescales based on experience.
