William is an associate with our Property Litigation team and acts for a wide range of clients on a full spectrum of residential, commercial and agricultural disputes. He has a particular interest in acting for either landlords or tenants in residential possession proceedings.

William deals with a variety of residential and commercial property matters for both landlords and tenants.

Commercially, he acts on both sides in relation to opposed and unopposed business lease renewals under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954. Elsewhere, he has experience acting primarily for landlords in disputes involving breaches of covenant such as unlawful alterations and sub-letting, the non-payment of ground rent and service charge as well as dilapidations claims and forfeiture proceedings.

Differently, William has worked on rights of light cases so can appreciate the technical and practical complexities this can bring.

On the residential side, William has experience advising both tenants and landlords on possession proceedings and has a particular interest in the enforcement process which so often follows on. He has also dealt with lease extensions and freehold enfranchisement claims, as well as collective claims.

William’s approach to disputes is to resolve them in pragmatic and commercial way, ensuring your position is supported whilst always striving to minimise the costs and stress involved.
