Specialist Property Dispute & Litigation Solicitors in Reading & Henley-on-Thames

Property is an integral part of any organisation and property related issues can have far reaching implications for your business, both financially and at an operational level. Our solicitors can assist you with any property issues that you encounter, whether it relates to property ownership, the landlord and tenant relationship, or third party rights.

We will work closely with you to gain an understanding of your business’s property related concerns, the commercial pressures you face as a result, and your objectives. Our specialist property litigation solicitors can then advise you on the most suitable options available to you, to achieve a practical and commercial solution as quickly and as cost effectively as possible.

We regularly represent commercial landlords and tenants when they experience difficulties. We appreciate that it is important to take a pragmatic and proportionate approach to any issues, in order to maintain a future relationship with the other party where possible, whilst also achieving a favourable outcome for you and your business.

Our expertise and experience

We can advise you in the early stages, perhaps before the matter has even become contentious, right through to its conclusion.

While we are highly experienced in pursuing and defending disputes through litigation and in the courts and tribunals. We recognise the demands that unresolved disputes can place on you and your business, including in terms of time and costs, and will work to help you to explore alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation, to avoid the need for litigation where possible. We are highly experienced in pursuing and defending disputes through litigation, whether in the courts or property tribunals.

Our dedicated Dispute Resolution team is recommended in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500. We can also call on colleagues across the firm who specialise in a wide range of areas, including commercial property, and planning and environmental, corporate and commercial and employment law, when needed.

We advise clients including UK subsidiaries, SMEs and family or owner-managed businesses, landowners and developers, charities and education providers.

As members of the international Law Firm Network, we can also advise overseas clients on doing business in the UK, including assisting with any property issues which may arise.
