Bevan Brittan said Teagle “has extensive hands-on experience of resolving land and property-based disputes, including those centring on business tenancy renewals; service charge, rent review and dilapidations disagreements; and disputes around restrictive covenants, easements, trespass and claims for possession”.

Teagle said: “I am delighted to be joining Bevan Brittan. They have a thriving Leeds office and a strong national presence advising clients on property and estates disputes and litigation as well as a host of related issues. It feels like a great fit for me and I am really looking forward to this new chapter in my career.”
