Property Litigation


Maeve maintains a practice in both property litigation and non-contentious property law, and is an expert in dispute resolution.  She advises institutions including Highways England, Defra and the Royal Parks on all issues relating to their estates including acquisitions and disposals, lease negotiations and litigious matters including contentious break notices and dilapidations.  Maeve has secured multi-million pound savings on dilapidations claims made against her clients. 



Dilapidations Mediation for The Department for Education

Advised the Department for Education on a claim for dilapidations relating to its former occupation of office premises in central London, valued at close to £300k. Maeve attended mediation on behalf of the client, ultimately settling the claim at  less than a third of the amount originally claimed.


£700k Professional Negligence Claim

Acting for residents at Putsborough Sands in North Devon in a professional negligence claim against engineers who had designed and overseen the construction of a coast protection scheme. Maeve successfully obtained some £700k in damages against the engineers.


Dilapidations Advice to The Cabinet Office

Advised the Cabinet Office on a £1.3 million claim for dilapidations relating to their exit from a multi-storey office building in Central London. Maeve rejected both the claim and a subsequent settlement offer, leading to the claim being dropped.


"Her support was honestly one of the best I have come across in my entire career".  

Property Manager, the Cabinet Office. 

"Maeve is praised for her ability to simplify complex issues"
