The Dispute Resolution team has a reputation for providing pragmatic, commercial advice on a wide range of property litigation and real estate disputes.
Our commercial clients extend across the spectrum of typical SME’s including developers, retailers, service providers, charities, and professional landlords including private individuals, as well as organisations in the financial and educational sectors. The team works closely with our Commercial Property and Commercial Law experts to provide a full service to our commercial property clients.
When resolving disputes, our specialists focus on acting in the quickest and most cost effective way, always having regard to the particular client’s objectives. Where litigation appears to be the only course open, we do regularly represent our commercial clients (large and small) in substantial matters in the County Court and the High Court.
A commercial property dispute may arise for many reasons.
Landlords may need to protect their investment for example where a tenant falls into rent arrears or becomes insolvent or fails to carry out repairs or comply with the terms of the lease.
Tenants may need to protect their business premises and livelihood if a landlord is non-compliant with the terms of the lease and fails to carry out the landlord’s responsibilities in terms of repairs or if they are concerned about the rising cost of the rent.
