Real Estate Disputes
Disputes relating to land can take numerous forms whether residential or commercial, freehold or leasehold, property and/or financial claims.
Unlike many business disputes, often the parties will be locked into a continuing relationship with each-other, for example as neighbours or landlord/tenant. At Maitland we have the expertise to use the mediation process to give the parties the best chance of exploring the dispute, identifying the real issues, and achieving a consensual resolution enabling them to move forward. In what may well be a complex area of law and/or factual history, our real estate litigation expertise enables us to actively engage with the parties, reality testing where appropriate, so that settlement can be explored with confidence.
Beverley Vara (previously a real estate litigation partner at Allan & Overy LLP) is a full-time mediator whose background makes her an ideal mediator for real estate disputes.
