Our people

Christopher Sullivan


I am responsible for our dispute resolution service.

What I do

I am an equity partner and have a number of roles throughout the business. My principal focus is dispute resolution.

I joined Malcolm Hollis in 1999 and moved to Birmingham in 2004 to open our first office in the Midlands, which is now headed up by partner Simon Goodrick.

Although I still undertake work in all traditional building surveying areas, I specialise in landlord and tenant matters including dilapidations, contested lease renewals and service charge disputes. I operate out of our Birmingham and London offices.

In the field of dispute resolution, I cover a number of areas and work closely with Nicholas Dowding QC. I was appointed as an Expert Witness in the widely reported The 1954 Act case ground (f) Franses v Cavendish Hotels, which was decided in the Supreme Court in December 2018. I am also one of only ten RICS accredited independent experts in the UK for dilapidations disputes.

I also regularly present and write articles in the property press on various surveying subjects.

Who I am

Away from work my young family with two girls keep me busy but, given the opportunity, I enjoy reading, cooking, watching Nottingham Forest lose regularly, England winning occasionally (in any sport!), all more often than not with a beer in my hand.
