• I am a property dispute resolution lawyer advising landowners, landlords and tenants across a range of sectors. I act for NHS bodies, commercial developers, local authorities and registered providers of social housing. I also have experience on telecoms matters. At any one time I might be advising clients on issues as diverse as business lease renewals, easement and boundary disputes, adverse possession, squatters, drainage/sewage, break notices and dilapidations.

    • Levett -Dunn and Others v NHS Property Services Ltd – This case developed a new law regarding the correct address for the service of break-clause notices in commercial leases.
