Vanessa Joll


Real Estate Disputes & Housing & Asset Management

Vanessa is one of the leading property litigators in the south east region. She leads the practice area at Shakespeare Martineau and has been involved in resolving a wide range of complex and high value disputes over her 20+ years in practice.

She is highly skilled at working closely with her clients to develop a strategy to resolve any dispute in a way which meets their commercial objectives. She is calm but proactive and highly focused on achieving the required outcomes, whilst retaining her down to earth and relatable manner.

Clients say:

“We have total confidence in any real estate litigation situation where Vanessa is advising us.” Chambers 2022

“She is a great strategic thinker with a practical mindset to get the best outcome for her clients.” Chambers 2022

Vanessa’s clients range from developers to local authorities and a range of landlords and tenants, both in the commercial and residential sectors.

Recent work highlights include advising on the implications of the Building Safety Act 2022 and cladding remedial works, advising on a complex vacant possession requirement and dilapidations claim for a tenant of an Aerodrome and acting on a boundary dispute and adverse possession claim relating to an area required for access to a development site.

I love what I do and the market I operate in. I work hard to understand my clients’ priorities so that I can achieve a solution which fits with those and that they get the best value from the work I do for them.
