About Ian

Having trained at a leading City law firm,  Ian has specialised in property disputes since qualifying as a solicitor in 2008.  He advises on a wide range of issues, including the disputes that arise between landlords and tenants on a day-to-day basis regarding the management and occupation of large investment property portfolios.

Ian acts for institutional landlords, developers, commercial tenants and individuals. His particular areas of expertise include:

  • opposed and unopposed lease renewals
  • disputes regarding the payment of rent and service charges
  • issues regarding break notices
  • forfeiture and possession claims
  • applications for consent to assign or underlet
  • issues regarding disrepair, reinstatement and other breaches
  • removal of trespassers
  • property-related insolvency issues
  • disputes between neighbouring landowners regarding rights of way, boundaries and restrictive covenants.

Ian’s work highlights include:

  • obtaining injunctions in the High Court to prevent a development in Central London from trespassing against his client’s land and to stop it from interfering with his client’s right of way
  • helping a prominent charity to defend the largest dilapidations claim brought in its history, which was subsequently settled via mediation
  • opposing various lease renewals under section 30(1)(f) of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 to help a PLC clear a large mixed use site in Manchester for redevelopment.


Ian is a member of the Law Society of England & Wales and the Property Litigation Association.


Outside of work, Ian enjoys historical fiction; his sporting interests include football, golf, cricket and skiing.

“I like to help my clients resolve their problems quickly and cost-effectively so that they can get back to business and move on with their lives.”
