Dellah Gilbert - Maples Teesdale LLP

Within: Property litigation

Dellah Gilbert solely heads the 'responsive and professional' team at Maples Teesdale LLP following former co-head Michael Kilner's departure from the firm and legal private practice in January 2019. The team's expertise covers dilapidations, rights to light, business tenancy renewals and rent reviews, including arbitration and associated risk analysis, as well as contentious property matters arising from retail insolvencies; recently, this included obtaining orders requiring administrators to pay rent as necessary disbursement or expense of the administration as well as obtaining orders for possession where administrators would not consent to the forfeiture of a lease.
