Property Litigation

Stepien Lake advise on and handle all aspects of property-related disputes and litigation. We act for a wide variety of corporates and individuals, including landlords and tenants in both the commercial and residential sectors, institutional lenders, property investors, developers and retailers.

Being fully integrated within a specialist property-focussed practice means that we are pro-active, able to alert clients to potential problem areas and to provide advice at an early stage and before matters become contentious. By providing an insight on how courts, tribunals and arbitrators may determine issues we are able to help our clients to formulate and implement appropriate strategies for securing their commercial objectives.

We also provide advice and representation in general and commercial litigation including contractual and commercial disputes, partnership issues and negligence claims, debt recovery and enforcement of judgments. We advise clients in relation to a wide variety of contentious employment work including unfair/wrongful dismissal claims, enforcement of restrictive covenants, discrimination claims and compromise agreements.

We act for property investment and development companies, partnerships, construction companies, business consultancies, management companies, investment trusts, commercial enterprises, charitable trusts, recruitment consultancies and executive search agencies and a wide variety of professionals and individuals.
