Why Choose Us?

Bespoke Real Estate Litigation practice

Three partner practice at WH Lawrence, with a background in some of the top real estate dispute teams in the country. With around 60 years of property litigation experience between us, you can be sure you’re in safe hands.

Cost Effective Legal Services

Stream-lined, cost effective, legal services. No commoditisation of services (such as the use of standard templates and junior staff): this is a cheap but inappropriate solution for most clients. Contentious property matters commonly involve extensive case law and statutes. Experienced advisors with practical, commercial solutions are imperative.

Efficiency and Flexibility

Partner level service at around half the rates of city firms, proportionate to the dispute. Achieved by:

  • low overheads: no expensive city offices or extensive administrative staff but support and meeting rooms available centrally in London and other major cities, as and when needed.
  • support network of lawyers and staff available to meet the demands of a particular instruction.
  • efficient use of junior counsel for research based work (more efficient than the use of trainees and junior solicitors in larger law firm structures).
  • maximised use of information technology and online resources.
  • more flexible, tailored fees, compared to those possible in more traditional law firm structures.

An Alternative To Traditional Law Firms

No inexperienced staff who learn on the job, no partner supervision time of junior fee earners –both are features of the traditional law firm structure, the cost of which is passed to clients. Immediate, pragmatic advice direct from the partners, who are involved cradle to grave.

Focusing On What We Do Best

True specialists: it is not our goal to provide a wider range of services outside our property-based expertise but we regularly work alongside clients’ transactional, commercial or other lawyers and professionals and always respect existing relationships.

Working With Others

We build teams for your case with an established and extensive network of property related professionals:

  • barristers
  • surveyors
  • valuers
  • planners

and other expert witnesses.
