Property litigation

Within: Property litigation

The team at JPC Law is ‘outstanding’ with ‘great depth of knowledge’. Practice head Yashmin Mistry has a ‘great overview of the law’ and leads a team ‘good enough to handle serious and heavyweight litigation. Residential leasehold litigation is an area of expertise for the group which is also developing a reputation for acting on property fraud cases. Partners Steven Ross and Niten Chauhan recently led a Court of Appeal case in which a fraudulent seller had been paid over £1m for a property by client P&P. The solicitors who acted for the fraudulent seller were held to be in breach of trust on the basis that upon receiving payment, they transferred the money to their client as opposed to the genuine owner of the property. Ross is ‘phenomenal at getting results for his clients’ and Chauhan is ‘an extremely diligent and capable lawyer’.
