About Me

Helen specialises in all aspects of property-related disputes and is head of the real estate disputes team.

Helen joined Stevens & Bolton in 2007 having trained and qualified in London, becoming a partner in 2013.

Her practice primarily focuses on commercial property disputes and advice, covering all areas of landlord and tenant work (including lease renewals, breach of covenant claims, dilapidations), contractual claims arising from dealings with land, development issues including restrictive covenant claims and rights of light. Helen also advises on the impact of insolvency on property interests generally, and advises private clients on their property issues.

Helen acts for a wide range of clients across multiple sectors who appreciate her practical advice on often complicated technical points, including large corporate occupiers, investors and developers as well as individuals. With a clear understanding of the commercial aims of her clients at the outset, Helen will advise on the most appropriate way to deal with any issues or opportunities whether through the court or alternative means of dispute resolution such as mediation or PACT.

Recent highlights include:
