Property Disputes and Litigation Solicitors
LCF Law’s team of property litigation lawyers advise on disputes and litigation on both commercial and residential property.
We know that any sort of property dispute can be complicated and stressful and we always strive to resolve situations as quickly and commercially as possible, whether we are acting for commercial or residential property owners, for developers, for surveyors, for landlords or for tenants.
Whatever the nature of the dispute we will provide quality advice and support to help you to resolve it; whether that is through negotiation, litigation, arbitration, expert involvement or alternative dispute resolution.
We know that you do not want to be embroiled in costly and lengthy litigation so we always aim to resolve disputes as quickly as possible. We look for cost-effective and pragmatic solutions. If we consider you should fight the case we will tell you. Equally, if we think you should cut your losses and get out quick, we will advise you to do just that.
We can help you to pursue or defend a claim and our highly experienced team can act at every level whether in Tribunals, County Court, High Court, on Appeals, or above.
We also recognise that there is often a crucial need to maintain ongoing relationships with both landlords and tenants, as well as business contacts, co-owners and associates during any form of dispute. Throughout any dispute we work hard to minimise disruption to your business and to protect your reputation.
