Property Litigation

Our clients range from regional, national and international organisations, investors, funds, commercial and residential developers and REITs, through to health trusts, government, and local authorities.


We have more than 170 specialist real estate lawyers, making us one of the largest real estate legal teams in the country. Working within this our litigation specialists have a national reputation for success, drawing on deep expertise and experience across areas of property litigation.

These include strategic land disputes, rent reviews and lease disputes, break notices, CVAs, dilapidations and environmentally-related matters. We are particularly well known for our litigation expertise on high profile debt recovery and insolvency matters.

We also have a specialist team advising on disputes concerning the telecommunications code and other legislation for mobile operators, infrastructure providers and developers.

We work closely with our colleagues in the real estate portfolio management team to ensure that high volume matters are conducted in the most efficient and cost effective manner.

Importantly, we stand out for the close, trusting working relationships we hold with our clients. Our work is frequently of a high profile, strategic and sensitive nature and we’re often called upon to respond at short notice, managing high value, complex and challenging situations.
