If you develop, occupy or own commercial property you are likely to have had experience of disagreements with landlords, tenants, neighbours, management companies, investors and others. A dispute may be the only way of resolving a property issue for the present and future.
Property disputes do not necessarily have to be resolved by hard fought, adversarial trials. Often they lead to negotiated settlements meaning that all those involved benefit. We provide practical and clear advice and take action to help clients avoid disputes. If this is not possible, we guide clients through the dispute process, protecting their rights and striving to obtain the best possible outcome for them both personally and commercially. We have a success rate of over 90% in disputes that go to trial in court or are determined by an arbitrator or an expert.
Our Property Disputes team works with our leading Real Estate, Finance, Restructuring, Planning and Construction practices. We are experienced in development and investment work, landlord and tenant issues and property financing transactions.
We have the skills and resources to handle all aspects of property disputes including those relating to:
- sale and purchase of land
- breach of contract
- landlord and tenant disputes including lease renewals
