Sam leads the leasehold enfranchisement department at Wallace, a highly technical and specialised area of law which Wallace dominates as a result of early identification of opportunities under the legislation.

Sam specialises in leasehold enfranchisement and property related litigation including landlord and tenant disputes, dilapidations claims, service charge disputes, contentious lease-renewal proceedings as well as party wall disputes.  She represents landlords, tenants and groups of tenants.

Her team has been involved in leading enfranchisement decisions including several which have set significant precedents, and is consistently recommended in legal directories Chambers UK (“…known for its talents in leasehold enfranchisement, where it has a dedicated standalone practice…”) and The Legal 500.

Highlights of her work include:

  • Successfully representing the Freshwater group of companies (one of London’s largest private landlords) in hundreds of cases each year.
  • Handling a large volume of cases for Daejan Properties, a FTSE 250 company.
  • Involvement in a number of significant leasehold enfranchisement cases including Brick Farm Management -v- Richmond Housing Estate and City & Country Properties -v- Plowden Investments.
