Disputes / Residential possession proceedings

I am an experienced Solicitor in the civil dispute/commercial litigation team. I have a vast range of expertise dealing with all types of civil disputes.

Civil Litigation – I regularly advise in relation to disputes between parties from start to finish, including advising on pre-actions steps, issuing/responding to proceedings, interim applications, dealing with disclosure of documentation and the preparation of witness evidence, issues relating to costs and assessment, as well as final hearings and appeals – in both the County Court and High Court. 

Dispute Resolution - I also regularly provide advice and assistance in relation to formal mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.  In addition to general litigation work, I often receive instructions in relation to dealing with debt recovery issues and insolvency proceedings.  I take a pragmatic approach to dispute resolution in order to achieve the objectives of each client.

Property Litigation – In addition to general litigation work, I deal with a wide range of contentious property issues – this includes disputes relating to trespass and rights of way, land registration, dilapidations, breach of lease covenants, forfeiture and possession.  I have acted for clients in the County Court, High Court and First-Tier Property Tribunal.  I also work closely with Markel Law’s Property Department in relation to advising on break notices and the early termination of commercial leases.

If you have any type of dispute you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact me.
