Positive, long-term solutions

We aim to resolve disputes with as little stress and disruption to our clients’ lives as possible.

We understand that in most property dispute cases, you will share a relationship or live in close proximity with the person you are in disagreement with, for example, your neighbour, your landlord, or relative.

We therefore aim to help clients minimise conflict and preserve relationships to improve the long-term success of your solution. If it suits your case, we can help you access methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), such as mediation, which have a strong track record of helping individuals negotiate disputes in a peaceful, neutral environment.

Court proceedings

Whilst it should be a last resort, we accept that starting legal proceedings is sometimes the best course of action. We will advise you as early on as possible whether it is in your best interests to start a claim and can handle the entire process on your behalf.

Similarly, if you are facing legal action by someone else, we will take all possible steps to prevent the case reaching court to save you unnecessary costs and stress. However, if a claim is made, we will draw on years of practical experience to vigorously defend your position.
