Tracey is a legal director with over 25 years’ experience, advising primarily on property-related disputes including boundary, easements and right of way issues. Tracey also advises on landlord and tenant disputes; leasehold enfranchisement matters and applications to the First Tier Tribunal.
Any dispute is stressful, time consuming and potentially very expensive; Tracey’s aim, therefore, is to resolve the dispute at the earliest opportunity adopting a commercial and common-sense approach. Tracey is an advocate of using alternative dispute resolution where appropriate but recognises that sometimes court proceedings and swift action are necessary to protect her clients’ interests.
Tracey acts for a variety of clients from national home builders and SMEs to private individuals, farmers and landowners.
Tracey deals with a variety of agricultural disputes ranging from disputes over land and tenancy issues to contractual and inheritance disputes. Tracey understands the commercial realities facing the farming community and provides sensible and practical advice.
