Practice notes

Lisa sits on the Eversheds Sutherland International Board and is Head of our Real Estate Dispute Resolution team.

Consisting of 12 partners and over 60 fee-earners the team is the largest group of specialist real estate litigators in Europe. It is a team which is acknowledged as a leader in this area of law, having over twice the number of recommended experts listed in Chambers than its nearest competitor and being described as having an "outstanding reputation" and "superb breadth and depth of expertise, which is second to none"

Lisa personally has been recognised as a leading individual in both Legal 500 and Chambers for many years and is Band 1 in both directories. She is quoted as being "a pleasure to work with, attentive and a great lateral thinker providing clear advice on complex real estate litigation disputes".

In addition to advising upon a full range of property related disputes, Lisa is an expert in agricultural property litigation.

Recent experience includes acting for a pub company in defending a substantial injunction and damages claim at which an interim injunction was avoided, advising on a substantial relief from forfeiture application relating to the Cube in Birmingham and acting for National Grid on a number of complex agricultural matters.

Lisa also has significant expertise in dilapidation and rent review disputes and regularly acting on multi-million pound claims. She is one of the few solicitor members of Arbrix and regularly acts as a legal assessor on rent review disputes.

Lisa has also been involved in a number of reported cases including Chancebutton Limited v. Compass Services UK and Ireland Limited [2004] EWHC 293 CH) [2004] 2 EGLR 47, BP Oil UK Limited & Others v.
