Property litigation, business services group.


A legal director in the property litigation team, Julia is experienced in dealing with a wide range of property claims, including landlord and tenant disputes, rights of way, restrictive covenants, overage and property damage claims.

Julia originally qualified into the commercial property team, which provided her with the experience essential for a property litigator, before moving into a litigation role, which included dealing with a large number of property related professional negligence claims. She then took this valuable experience with her to the firm’s specialist property litigation team.

In addition to Julia’s expertise in professional negligence and working on the ‘bread and butter’ work of a property litigator, such as landlord and tenant disputes and property damage claims, Julia specialises in ‘real property’ disputes, for example, issues relating to a variety of different easements, restrictive covenants and adverse possession.

Julia also acts for a number of leading legal indemnity insurers who provide insurance to commercial and residential property owners. She is appointed to act for the policy holder when a claim is made under the policy. She also provides advice on policy/coverage issues for insurers.
