I work in the Dispute Resolution team and undertake general litigation work. My main areas of work are landlord and tenant matters, mortgage repossessions and insolvency advice. I also act in contract disputes, debt recovery, land disputes (i.e. TOLATA claims), and anti social neighbours (along with antisocial hedges which also feature frequently). I can also advise on Fire Enforcement Notices. I often work with clients who lack capacity. I have strong interests in homelessness and helping the individual against larger bodies i.e. Limited Companies.
In respect of Landlord & tenant areas, I have acted for Landlords evicting Tenants, and defended Landlords against Claims issued by Tenants. I have regularly defended Tenants against Housing Associations and won on several occasions, recovering our costs. I deal with most areas of housing law. We also have a Legal Aid Housing franchise which means I can advise tenants. By value, the largest dispute I have been instructed on was £2,200,000.
