Property Litigation

“A real specialism for property litigation” Legal 500 (2016)

We are proud of the fact that our specialist property litigation team is ranked among the best in Wales, and recommended by both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners independent guides to the legal profession.  In fact, we are the only firm of solicitors in Wales to have two partners – Iwan Doull and Simon Care – who are both individually recognized and recommended as outstanding property litigators. The 2018 edition of Legal 500 highlights our ‘sensible and commercial approach to property disputes’ whilst the 2018 edition of Chambers & Partners identifies our ‘depth of property knowledge and expertise’ and describes us as ‘very commercially minded and solution driven’.

As a result of this expertise in property litigation, our team is regularly invited to speak on property-related matters to both the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and various firms of surveyors across the region.

Our specialist team of solicitors can offer you expert support in resolving your dispute.  We have extensive experience in handling all aspects of property and property-related disputes, having represented our clients in every legal forum, including the County Court, the High Court, the Court of Appeal, the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal / Residential Property Tribunal, the Lands Tribunal and the First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber).

The key to our success is our focus on the needs and objectives of our clients.  Those clients range from PLCs, banks and insurance companies to SMEs and private individuals.  We pride ourselves on providing all our clients with a bespoke service which is tailored to their particular needs. 

The 2017 edition of Chambers & Partners said of us that “They punch completely above their weight; they have excellent quality work and very good clients.”  The same guide praised us for being “Able to offer good, practical advice”, noting that “The service they provide is good and it is backed up with knowledgeable individuals.”
