When property is your business – or an essential part of it – problems and potential conflict need to be resolved sensibly and quickly to minimise the impact and achieve your preferred outcome.
In helping you, our starting point is to understand what drives your business and where it’s going. Then we work on how we can help you get there.
Our experienced property litigators haven’t always been lawyers, and they appreciate that the commercial imperative behind any course of action varies significantly from case to case. You might want to achieve maximum returns from your investment, move quickly to seal a deal, or even put the brakes on.
Whatever the context, our approach means that we will unfailingly protect your legal position by providing advice that brings value to your business and helps achieve your property objectives.
Our core skills lie in taking complex property disputes to trial. Of course we appreciate that the court process can be both expensive and time consuming, and at times an 'out of court' solution may suit your business better than a court-imposed settlement. From the outset we will advise on the various options available and, where appropriate, negotiate on your behalf to avoid actual litigation.
We have recently advised on:
- commercial landlord and tenant disputes, lease renewals and lease surrender negotiations
- rent and service charge disputes and recovery
- dilapidations claims
- breaches of covenant, boundary disputes and adverse possession
- professional negligence claims against property advisers
