Property and Land Disputes

Property disputes, whether commercial or residential, can be costly and time consuming. Individuals and companies need to manage their estates and property interests carefully, whether they are a landlord with significant property interests or a tenant. Property disputes are about more than just making things clear. They can involve injunctions, which can force someone to do or stop doing something in relation to a property.

We advise on all aspects of property litigation and handle high value complex work, ranging from commercial and residential landlord and tenant disputes.
