Whatever property dispute you have, our property litigation team can work with you to settle it. We work with landlords and tenants on a range of commercial property disputes.

Mortgage Possession

We can advise accordingly on mortgage possession claims, where the borrower’s mortgage payments are in arrears and the borrower faces losing their home.

Rent Possession Cases

Rent arrears may mean your landlord is seeking possession of the property and he may try to evict you - we can advise both landlords and tenants with appropriate legal advice.

Debt Collection

When a commercial dispute escalates, our legal team may be contacted to take it further and start the debt recovery process.

Intellectual Property Disputes

If you have an intellectual property dispute, you need a specialist dispute resolution team that can offer advice on the licensing and protection of all forms of intellectual property.

Landlord and Tenant

When the relationship between a landlord and tenant becomes strained, a dispute can arise which can lead to serious consequences. Speak to our legal team if you have a landlord or tenant dispute.

Landlord and Tenant Matters

Are you a landlord or a tenant? There’s a lot to know about your legal rights and our team can advise on a range of tenancy matters. As a landlord, we’ll make sure you’re legally covered with your property. Tenants can also rest assured we’ll advise accordingly on their legal obligations when renting a property.

Contentious Probate

When someone doesn’t leave a Will, the deceased’s estate is processed through Probate. Unfortunately, this can often result in a dispute over the asset value and beneficiaries. We will work with you to minimise contentious probate issues.
