Linden Talbot

Solicitor - Dispute Resolution

What's your role?

I am a solicitor in the Dispute Resolution team. I specialise in contentious property matters but also maintain a general litigation practice.

I assist clients with matters ranging from the pre-action stages of a dispute to final hearings and trials. I also advise on methods of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration. My role is to work with clients to understand their businesses and objectives and try to achieve their objectives by ensuring clients understand the steps involved in pursuing those objectives.

Your experience

My property work includes acting for commercial landlords and tenants on matters such as contentious lease renewals, possession actions, breach of covenants, forfeiture and claims for dilapidations. I also act for residential landlords and tenants in possession claims, service charge disputes, boundary disputes and trespass.

My commercial work includes claims for breach of contract, misrepresentation, recovery of director’s loans, shareholder disputes and claims against guarantors.

I have experience representing clients at hearings in the county courts and working with specialist barristers on matters in the High Court and Property Tribunals.
