Arthur is a Trainee Solicitor in Trowers & Hamlins' Property Litigation department.
Arthur acts for all principal stakeholders across a range of real estate sectors, including residential and commercial property developers and property companies, title indemnity insurers, institutional pension funds, receivers and insolvency practitioners, housing providers, private investors, entrepreneurs and occupiers of commercial and residential property.
He is part of a team who are well versed in advising clients on the full range of commercial and residential landlord and tenant issues. This includes lease renewals pursuant to the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954, alienation, rent review, dilapidations and other general breach of covenant matters; all areas of residential landlord and tenant, with a particular emphasis on residential service charge disputes and tenancy enforcement; telecommunications; and all aspects of property related insolvency. The team also advise in relation to rights of light, easements, restrictive covenants and other real property issues.
The team's focus is on strategic advice so that disputes are avoided and, where matters have become contentious, they take a pragmatic approach, seeking to resolve disputes in the most efficient and commercial manner possible, and always tailed to the client's objectives. Litigation is usually a last resort and even then used carefully as a means to deliver the right negotiated outcome rather than constituting an end in itself.
