We are ranked as a leading firm in Property Litigation by the Legal 500, which has praised our "thriving landlord/tenant practice".

Property litigation disputes often involve an element of banking, fraud or negligence, being areas in which Glovers’ dispute resolution department also practises, and we are able to utilise that expertise for the maximum benefit of clients.

We are also able to draw upon the exceptional property expertise of Glovers’ non-contentious departments to assist our clients with any potential problems before they arise and to offer comprehensive solutions if they do.
