Before taking legal action over the dispute, it’s always advisable to find an alternative solution via mediation or negotiation. We offer both litigation services and alternative dispute resolution. You may need advice over both areas.
Commercial property disputes are more common in leases than sales and purchases, but our team can help with all kinds of property disputes.
Our remote-operating commercial property dispute solicitors are based across the UK so we can help you wherever you are. We also have offices in Sheffield, Birmingham, Cambridge and London.
