Receivers can issue possession proceedings against borrowers
Simon Beetham | 21.10.2019
A litigation & dispute resolution expert specialising in high-value and complex disputes, my practice covers disputes involving contentious trusts and probate, property ownership and all aspects of real estate.
I specialise in acting for private individuals, trusts, charities owner-managed businesses, developers and serial entrepreneurs.
My clients price my pragmatic, commercial and cost-effective legal advice. As an experienced litigator and negotiator, I utilise alternative dispute resolution (where possible) to avoid the time and expense of court proceedings.
I am named as a key lawyer in the 2019 edition of Legal 500 for Property Litigation and below are examples of client feed back received from past Practitioners Guides.
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.

"Thomas Middlehurst conducted our case in a professional, realistic and practical manor. Despite the continuous threatening bravado and bluster from the claimant’s solicitor, Mr Middlehurst’s responses were always professional rather than emotional. Mr Middlehurst had the ability to take the emotion out of the issue and was always realistic in his communication of the potential outcome scenarios." Client
"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
