Real Estate Disputes

We know that in real estate disputes every hour counts. Our clients look to us for prompt, effective advice to resolve their dispute.

Our advice to our clients is often to avoid becoming involved in lengthy and costly litigation and to consider other means of resolving the dispute. We aim, where possible, to resolve the dispute without proceedings, using negotiation or other kinds of dispute resolution, such as mediation.

Effective real estate dispute resolution requires strategic planning to avoid problems arising as well as finding solutions once they have arisen. We work closely with our Real Estate team at all stages of a deal to identify potential issues and to provide appropriate advice.
