Ben Frost is a solicitor and accredited mediator in the firm’s commercial litigation and property litigation team at the West end office on Baker Street, London. The Legal 500 2017 has recognised the team as having an “unique dynamic” and “a well-integrated and exceptionally talented property litigation team”.
Ben qualified at a medium size Central London firm where he specialised in property litigation, dealing with commercial and residential lease extensions, possession proceedings, landlord and tenant disputes, adverse possession and forfeiture. He also has experience in civil litigation, including contract disputes, misrepresentation, negligence claims and debt recovery which have involved technical interim applications to the Courts.
In his role as mediator, Ben can be instructed to attempt to settle disputes at a confidential mediation which has the benefit of saving time, costs, emotional distress and reputation. This is an emerging alternative dispute resolution method and should be considered at the earliest stage possible in any dispute.
Outside of work Ben is a keen sportsman, taking part in football and running. Ben has run the London marathon for charity in the past.
