Various members of the Property Team also have experience of other disciplines. As a result we can offer a tailor-made solution for clients who wish a number of issues to be addressed, such as having a barrister act for a client in both a housing law matter and a related family law matter. A number of our barristers have a particular interest in trusts of land/cohabitation cases because it reflects their principal specialties of property and family law.
