Is your rented property “fit for human habitation”?
Harriet Allsop | 15.04.2019
A litigation & dispute resolution specialist, my practice covers commercial and civil litigation. I support clients with disputes involving breach of contracts and duty, property, landlord and tenant, cohabitation and contentious probate.
My clients include private individuals, trusts, charities and commercial organisations of all sizes, though I specialise in advising SMEs.
My clients receive pragmatic, commercial and cost-effective legal advice designed to resolve their issues as quickly as possible. As an experienced litigator and negotiator, I also utilise alternative dispute resolution to bring the issues my clients are facing to a successful conclusion.
Focussing on the outcomes my clients want, I use all avenues of the legal process to achieve the best possible solutions on their behalf.
I combine an expert knowledge of the law with vast practical experience gained in both large international firms as well as smaller regional firms. Clients appreciate my commercial and personable approach.
Outside of work I enjoy cycling, golf, rugby (more watching than playing these days) and adventure sports, in particular backcountry skiing when I can find the time to make it to the slopes. I’m also a qualified skydiver.

"Litigation is never something you want to enter into lightly, but Thomas has the ability to get to grips with the facts of a case quickly and provide clear and professional advice, enabling us to pursue a course of action targeted at producing our desired outcome. Thomas Middlehurst is an excellent commercial litigator with a solid background in property law. His outstanding qualities are his ability to communicate effectively with clients in dealing with complicated cases and to progress matters with minimal input. There are some very good lawyers I work with, but Thomas stands out on the litigation side." Client
"I was most impressed by and appreciated the commercial approach taken by Thomas. He is able to understand our needs on a commercial level and tailor his advice and the solutions he offers to meet those needs. Thomas is also great at providing simple solutions to complex problems and liaising with us and our other commercial advisers to ensure that the whole team is working under a unified strategy with the same goals. This enables us to deal with problems quickly as they arise and not lose sight of the big picture. I would recommend Thomas." Client
