Real Estate & Planning Disputes lawyers

As a developer, landlord, contractor or occupier, when a real estate project or transaction becomes contentious, it is essential that matters be dealt with as quickly and calmly as possible to ensure there is minimal disruption to your business and that you maintain the value of your asset.

That is why you need legal advice from a disputes team that understands the issues peculiar to the real estate sector.

The CMS real estate disputes team is one of the largest specialist teams in the UK. Servicing clients from five locations in London, Bristol, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow, the team focuses exclusively on real estate issues. Working as an embedded part of the wider real estate group, the team gives clients the benefit of experience of acting for the full spectrum of property holders across the widest range of disputes.

Our case went to court and we won. An outstanding result for our fund and for the industry at large, CMS did an exceptional job.
Global investment firm

Our clients include landlords, tenants, infrastructure providers, corporate occupiers, institutional funds and insolvency practitioners, and the team has expertise in mixed-use and residential property issues, as well as commercial property: from real estate-related insolvency to leasehold enfranchisement.

Whatever the complexity or type of dispute, our starting point is always to listen to you. Our approach and solutions are designed around your priorities: preserving the value of your investments and relationships, minimising costs, and achieving a speedy resolution. We are particularly committed to helping you keep control of your costs, providing upfront fee estimates and, in certain cases, undertaking fixed fee work.

As a team, heading to the court room is not our aim. Litigation should be a last resort. We pride ourselves on achieving commercial solutions for our clients, whether that is by mediation, arbitration or litigation.
