Disputes / Residential possession proceedings

I am an experienced Solicitor in the civil dispute/commercial litigation team within Markel Law. My experience and expertise comes from dealing with a vast range of differing civil disputes over a considerable number of years.  

I have acted for both companies and individuals in respect of a number of varying legal disputes, ranging from contractual disputes to property disputes.

Contractual Disputes - I have advised clients at the pre-litigation stage and throughout the litigation process. In addition to the advice provided, I deal with the drafting of documents for court, including pleadings at the beginning of a case, applications and subsequent witness statements. I also attend at round-table meetings and mediations.

The types of contractual disputes which I have experience in dealing with include general breach of contract matters; failure to provide goods which are fit for purpose and/or with reasonable skill and care; professional negligence disputes; care homes/framework agreement disputes.

Construction Disputes – I have successfully pursued disputes through litigation and adjudication, including claims relating to sums due pursuant to payment applications and rebutting arguments seeking unjustified contra-charges.  

Property Litigation - I have advised landlords and tenants, both companies and individuals and in some instances agricultural land owners.  The type of matters I deal with range from lease disputes; breach/obstruction of right of way disputes; dilapidation claims; and establishing boundaries.

I always aim to obtain the swiftest and most cost-effective resolution to a Client’s matter wherever possible.

From start to finish the advice given from the team was superb. I needed guidance having never dealt with such complex issues and was aware that without this I could seriously compromise the situation in hand. I would without hesitation recommend you to anyone being an individual or company that needed legal assistance. Thank you so much!”
