Property litigation.


Pamela heads up the national property disputes team at Browne Jacobson.

She has specialised in property litigation since qualification in 1992 joining the Birmingham office of Browne Jacobson as a partner in 2012. She is well known in the West Midlands – particularly for her technical expertise and commercial competence.

Pamela’s work continues to have a commercial landlord and tenant bias acting in equal measure for both landlords and tenants, but also acting for landowners and public sector clients.
Her focus in the last few years has been, and remains, on team growth, excellence through quality and knowledge, and profile building having, as an example, now established a solid lecturing background with the RICS, including speaking at their National Landlord and Tenant Roadshow in both 2018 and 2019. Pamela spoke at the Property Managers Association in Nottingham this year for the 7th year running.

As part and parcel of this concentration on team growth, the national team goes from strength to strength with continued development throughout the West and East Midlands
