Leanne Bowler

Senior Associate

I am a specialist property litigator, who helps clients to resolve their disputes quickly and cost effectively. I advise residential and commercial property investors, developers, tenants and individual on a wide range of property disputes.


I specialise in all aspects of property litigation, and my day to day work includes advising on matters such as service charge issues, enforcement of covenants, insolvency-related issues and leasehold enfranchisement. I have recently worked on disputes under the new telecoms code, and also have considerable experience of assisting with commercial landlord and tenant disputes, such as those involving the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 (acting both for tenants and landlords). I appreciate that contentious situations can be stressful and time-consuming for everyone involved. Where possible I aim to resolve disputes without the need for court proceedings.

When I'm not working I am a keen runner, cyclist and swimmer (and occasional triathlete).


We advise on all the key issues affecting the property industry, including regeneration and development schemes, investment, funding, construction matters, property disputes, portfolio management, planning, taxation and the creation of corporate structures.
