In addition to handling disputes, Charles provides a bespoke advisory service before a course of action is commenced, thereby allowing the client to proceed with their ‘eyes open’ to the risks involved.
He is often asked to review tenancy agreements and procedures for residential landlords, either new to the market, or with an established portfolio of properties.
Charles also advises on general commercial, contentious probate, consumer, contracts for goods/ services, and debt recovery matters. Having trained as an Advocate, Charles is often able to provide a seamless service, from initial meeting to Courtroom.
