Commercial Landlord & Tenant Disputes

We have a wide range of experience in resolving disputes between landlord and tenants. The areas of law surrounding commercial property disputes can be complex, so it is important to ensure that all clauses in a lease are well drafted from the beginning to help reduce any future risk.

To avoid complex issues and ongoing disputes, you should consult with our commercial property solicitors at various stages of your lease including assignment, subletting or termination and rent reviews.

We take a proactive approach to resolving any disputes and understand the need to deal with matters efficiently and effectively, avoiding court proceedings wherever possible.

We always provide clear and pragmatic advice regarding the prospects of success and the remedies available to you.

If the dispute cannot be resolved through alternative dispute resolution methods and court proceedings are necessary, we have the litigation expertise to represent your position in court.
