Property Litigation

Whether you are a commercial occupier, house builder/developer or simply a home owner, property disputes are often unavoidable, arising out of anything, for example, from unclear or ambiguous deeds, negligent conveyancing, to the insolvency of a tenant.

Our property litigation team acts for a broad range of clients from home owners to corporate developers. We know that different clients have different objectives and varying levels of resources to devote to resolving a dispute. Because of our experience and expertise, we can recognise and appreciate your needs and find a pragmatic solution, so as to minimise or remove any interference with your property interests. Where possible we will try to end any dispute without litigation.

The team is led by Kevin Lynch who is one of our Partners.
