Disputes can arise between different parties at any point on the property lifecycle, particularly on complex property projects or within large property portfolios.

That's when we work in collaboration with our clients’ in-house teams and agents to secure the best possible results.

You need a prompt and effective service when disputes arise and our team of real estate litigation lawyers is on-hand to deal with the full spectrum of contentious matters, managing risk and cost at every step. 

This includes strategic site clearance, risk identification advice, portfolio management and (when necessary) conducting litigation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

We have a deep understanding of the issues faced on construction and engineering projects, ranging from contested planning applications, delay and extension of time claims, and loss and expense through to issues of termination and professional negligence.

Our experienced specialists practise solely in real estate litigation and work closely with developers, main-contractors, sub-contractors, landlords and tenants to proactively resolve disputes at an early stage in a way that maintains the working relationships of our clients and their counterparties.

We’ll address and resolve disputes without the need for formal proceedings wherever possible. However, it’s common for complex projects to experience problems that require formal construction dispute resolution and we’re fully equipped to run these litigation proceedings. 

Whatever your requirement, we’re with you every step of the way.
