From private individuals to multinational companies, the property disputes team at B P Collins can assist you in dealing with various property disputes. The team prides itself on its targeted advice, focusing on resolving the dispute rather than getting lost in points of law with no commercial impact.  There is an inherent risk when owning property that disputes and disagreements will arise.  In those circumstances, we are there to help.  We want to get to the heart of the dispute, understand the objective and manage the dispute with the aim of analysing the risks and achieving a resolution as swiftly, as efficiently and cost effectively as possible. The team’s ethos is simple: solve the problem.

Commercial property dispute solicitors

Our property litigation solicitor’s technical knowledge is complemented by their practical experience.  In respect of commercial clients, the team sees itself as an extension of the client’s business, working collaboratively to understand and achieve commercial objectives.

Residential property dispute solicitors

Regarding individual clients (often exposed to litigation for the first time), the team’s skill is their ability to listen and advise in a straightforward manner.

The team is equally adept at managing problems and seeking the swift resolution of disputes, conducting mediations and other dispute resolution alternatives, as well as taking claims to court and on to trial.  Sometimes litigation is unavoidable, and the team can support you through the entire process.

I have worked with Elliott for just over two years on a number of complex matters and he has been dedicated and hard-working throughout. He is professional and commercial, yet not afraid to push back and challenge. I look forward to continuing to work with him.

From our initial conversation (when we really had no idea what to do) Elliott was open and honest, provided us with sound advice and discussed various options as our case developed, always taking on board our views to agree on the best course of action. Throughout a very difficult and stressful time, Elliott was extremely supportive, efficient and thorough; ultimately, achieving the best possible outcome we could’ve hoped for. We would absolutely recommend Elliott and all of his team that supported with our case.

“We needed a swift and conclusive resolution to a trespass on our land. The service we received from Elliott Brookes was focused and friendly. We were kept fully informed throughout a complex process which ended in the dispute being successfully resolved, and our costs recovered.”

“What can I say? Litigation. No one wants to go down that route, especially when you feel upset and wronged and that things are unjust. Honestly, B P Collins were my saviours because they were not only professional and supportive and did their job without me needing to check in, they checked in with me regularly and were clear and concise and honest. You get what you pay for.”
