Property and construction in Regional Bar
1 Crown Office Row, Brighton hosts a strong property team including Paul Ashwell, Simon Sinnatt and Michael Walker that deals with residential landlord and tenant work, regularly acting for landlords with large residential estates. In terms of commercial property, the set also works with commercial landlords and tenants on matters concerning the full gamut of offices, shops, factories and leisure facilities. Moreover, members of Chambers frequently receive instructions from local authorities.
Members of 3PB act across the entire sphere of property, from development to commercial as well as residential landlord and tenant disputes, but also boundary disputes, adverse possession claims, co-ownership and conveyancing disputes. Joshua Dubin represented a party to a three-decade neighbour dispute featuring allegations of deliberate flooding, trespass, vandalism to fences and nuisancious firing of rifles.
East Anglian Chambers
Graham Sinclair and Simon Redmayne are the two key names to note at East Anglian Chambers, with Redmayne focusing on contract, property and construction disputes, while Sinclair is a specialist for leasehold disputes, nuisance complaints and boundary disputes. The set offers 'an excellent range of specialisms' within the space, and has 'very able pupils' at the most junior end.
At Fenners Chambers, a set which 'holds its own well against opposition from London chambers' with an 'impressive calibre of counsel', Liam Varnam is one of several names with broad practices in property, and is particularly adept at handling trusts of land cases, land law matters such as boundary disputes and easements, as well as commercial landlord-and-tenant disputes.
Hardwicke is home to John Clargo and Charlotte John, who both have very active property practices in the South East. Like the set's London presence, its property expertise includes residential and commercial landlord and tenant matters, as well as agricultural tenancies, TOLATA claims and property-related negligence cases.
