Battens Welcomes Property Dispute Resolution Specialist
Battens Solicitors, one of the region’s largest law firms, has announced the appointment of Property Dispute Resolution specialist, Edward Thompson.
Edward, who completed his legal training at Battens in 2012 before relocating to London, has returned to the South West following a five year stint working in commercial and residential property dispute resolution at two of the capital’s most respected law firms. Although his expertise lies in property dispute resolution, his experience extends into other areas of dispute resolution, making him a valuable asset to Battens and its clients.
"I specialise in property disputes, and regularly act for large scale developers, but I can also act for parents to resolve disputes relating to Special Educational Needs, Education Health and Care Plans, and school places,” explained Edward.
"My job can be quite varied, but it always feels good to be able to help clients achieve their desired outcome and make an usually unhappy situation into a slightly more palatable one.
"I am glad to come back to Battens and am looking forward to getting to know new clients whilst helping the firm expand further both geographically and in terms of their property law offering."
Ceri Stephens, Head of Property and Dispute Resolution at Battens Solicitors, said: "Edward will be a valuable member of staff who will be able to assist in Battens’ specialist property offering in an expanding and developing team."
