What can Chris do for you?
Chris is an associate in our real estate disputes team, specialising in agricultural, commercial and residential property disputes.

His work covers all landlord and tenant issues, enfranchisement claims, claims under the Telecommunications Codes, nuisance claims, rights of way, trespass and boundary disputes.
Supporting your ambitions
Chris formed part of the team who successfully defended a private criminal prosecution for statutory noise nuisance under the Environmental Protection Act. Chris and the team acted for the defendant, a demolition contractor working on a high-value development in Mayfair. The matter proceeded to a six-day trial in January 2018. The development was valued at £6 billion and, had the prosecutor been successful, it would have put the demolition on hold for a number of months at a cost to the client of £300,000 per week, as well as having wide-ranging ramifications for the demolition industry.
What do others say?
Chris is often commended by clients for his "clear concise advice" and for his success in court. Chris and the team were recently praised for successfully acting for a university client in its claim for possession against students who occupied a key administrative building as part of a protest, and for expediting that court process to ensure minimal disruption.

Chris is able to draw upon a breadth of disputes experience, having undertaken a secondment to a well-known and international car manufacturer where he assisted with intellectual property and international contract disputes.
Chris is also a member of the Property Litigation Association.
Chris enjoys all sports, and recently cycled RideLondon raising money for the mental health charity, Young Minds.
