Property Litigation

Property litigation is increasingly seen as a stand-alone specialism involving proper risk assessment and management. Our talented team, which includes a qualified Solicitor Advocate, focus on delivering a commercial and straightforward approach for our clients.  Working with our highly regarded Real Estate team we are able to provide you with unrivalled industry knowledge.

Experience

There are a number of forums in which property disputes arise, be it the Court of Session or Sheriff Court, the Lands Tribunal or Lands Court, or at adjudication or arbitration. Our specialist team have experience of all such forums.

Often all that is required is to give some initial advice to our clients regarding arguments available and potential routes for resolution, to allow them to move matters forward. In recent years, an increasing proportion of our work involves advising our clients on law and strategy to allow them to reach a negotiated settlement. When required, we can advise on a range of measures including effective negotiation and mediation.
