Jill successfully secured a right of access across neighbouring land, against a large, national property developer, on behalf of an individual.

She also settled an intellectual property dispute promptly and without the need to issue court proceedings with the infringing items being destroyed and undertakings given to prevent further infringement.

Jill acted on behalf of the landlord to promptly and cost effectively obtain possession of a property from the tenants who had stopped paying their rent.
