Adrian joined Coffin Mew’s Brighton office two years ago as a property litigation specialist with extensive experience of real estate disputes, and landlord and tenant law. He will be working with Derek Walsh, head of the firm’s Agriculture & Rural Business sector, to grow a newly formed Property Litigation team representing clients with interests across the country. The team acts for commercial and residential property businesses, pension funds, farmers, landed estates and agribusinesses in a wide variety of property-related disputes.
