Well known for its ‘excellent transactional real estate practice’, Davitt Jones Bould also has a ‘growing property litigation team’, which was recently strengthened by the arrival of associate director Janani Puvi, who joined from property litigation boutique Dewar Hogan. Acting primarily for a government client base, Maeve Bonner acted for a central government department in relation to a contentious lease renewal for a property in a high-profile London location. Associate director John Smith has assisted a national transportation group with issues such as the removal of travellers, and recently advised the Department of Education on an historical dilapidations claim. Additional contacts include Zaheer Bashir, who is a ‘knowledgeable’ senior associate. The team also provides ongoing contentious property advice to The Royal Parks and Defra.
