Regional law firm Napthens has strengthened its dispute service with the arrival of a new commercial litigation specialist.

Solicitor James Freeman has joined the expanding team at Napthens from Simpson Millar and will focus on advising clients with commercial property disputes.

Originally from Northern Ireland, James is experienced in handling a broad range of disputes and litigation issues and will provide specialist legal advice on matters including breach of land contracts, break clauses, lease renewals and surrenders, dilapidations, forfeiture and recovery of land or premises from unauthorised occupiers. 

Based in Napthens’ Preston office, James will work with clients across the region.

David Bailey, partner and head of Litigation & Dispute Resolution at Napthens, said: "Demand for our specialist property litigation services continues to grow and I am delighted to have James on board.  His experience enables him to hit the ground running and provide the no-nonsense, excellent level of service clients have come to expect from Napthens."
