Commercial Property Litigation

Support for your commercial property disputes

Whether you’re the owner, manager, landlord or tenant of a commercial property, we can help you resolve a wide range of disputes, from breaches of covenant and dilapidations to rent recovery and break notices. 

We work with other specialist teams throughout our firm to offer you clear, pragmatic advice and direction. We’ll always tailor our services and the way we work together to suit your individual goals.


From right to light, to renewal of leases

We provide a personal, flexible service for both private clients and property managers, tenants and landlords with significant property portfolios. Our experience includes all aspects of property litigation including advising on covenants, rights to light and renewals of leases as well as other issues such as trespass. We’re also experts in professional negligence work, with expertise in pursuing surveyors and solicitors for negligent advice.  One of our Partners, John Carter, is also a member of the Property Litigation Association.

We scrutinise the small print and see the bigger picture

In property litigation, timescales can be critical so we’ll ensure you comply with all the relevant deadlines and advise you on any other issues you need to consider as part of a wider picture. The best action isn’t always court action, so we’re keen advocates of ADR and we’ll work with you to try and resolve matters favourably via mediation or other forms of resolution wherever possible.  We always act in your best interests and give you advice based on what’s best for your immediate and long-term commercial goals.

Our team can advise on issues including:

  • Breaches of covenants
  • Break notices
  • Commercial rent recovery
  • Dilapidations
  • Restrictive covenants and easement disputes
  • 1954 Act lease renewal notices and proceedings
  • Service charge disputes
  • Rights to light
  • Possession proceedings (including forfeiture)
  • Trespass
  • Claims for rectification of leases
