  • Support on disputed procurements, including defending injunctions to prevent the award of contracts post-tender 
  • All means of dispute resolution process from High Court litigation to mediation, and how to use each forum to your advantage. 
  • Disputes arising from the use and occupation of land, including boundary disputes, party wall disputes, trespass and adverse possession
