Nick Southwell BA (Hons)


I’m a partner in the litigation team who advises both businesses and individuals on resolving disputes, particularly those concerning property.

I think laterally and strategically when it comes to problem-solving and negotiations, always considering the commercial realities of a claim and assessing each case on its individual merits.

I also recognise the financial realities and time involved in resolving disputes and have a proven track record in regularly achieving successful outcomes for clients whether in correspondence, at mediation or at trial.

I am a recognised rising star by national guide, The Legal 500.

Experience highlights

  • Acting on behalf of a defendant client in the High Court in a contested claim for an alleged breach of contract and infringement of copyright. The case was determined after a five-day trial which led to an enquiry into damages which ultimately settled at mediation. This was a case which involved complicated disputes of both law and fact and my client was very pleased with the settlement that was achieved at mediation.
  • We acted for our client as defendant in contested proceedings issued by her mother against the estate of her late husband under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. This was a very complicated dispute involving multiple parties and was important to our client as it concerns the property, she has resided in for the past 20 years and the extent of her interest in the estate.
