A leading set specialising in commercial, construction, insurance and property law

Commercial Landlord & Tenant

Our barristers have expertise in advising and representing a broad spectrum of clients - from the professional landlord with a portfolio of hundreds of properties (whether private or public sector) to the single business tenant of modest means. We consider a dispute in its proper context and work to achieve a good commercial solution for every client.

Increasingly, disputes between landlords and tenants are being settled without recourse to formal court or tribunal proceedings. Our members work as part of a team with our clients and can assist with legal, tactical and procedural advice, drafting, negotiation and mediation to reach a cost effective commercial solution.

What the directories say

Hardwicke is a set which is highly praised by clients for the "refreshing level of attention and customer care" both its barristers and clerks provide. Its 20-strong team has members who are active in all areas of real property law, and are known for the "practical, reasonable and sensible" advice they give. One solicitor said of them: "They have a very commercial approach both in terms of their advice and the fees they charge. Clients can actually understand their opinions, which saves me the need of having to translate things into layman's terms."

Client service: "The clerks are very good at client care, and get the job done very effectively." "The clerks and practice managers make a real effort to build relationships with instructing solicitors."

Chambers UK, 2015

The barristers at Hardwicke are among "the best around for The Legal 500 2014property and housing litigation", and the set has "some very good up-and-coming juniors". It provides "outstanding service", "immense strength in landlord and tenant disputes", and is also "excellent for cases where property crosses over with another subject".
