I have enjoyed working with Cowells because yours is one of the few firms I have worked with to take a truly commercial approach to resolving issues. I find most other firms trot out the legal facts and leave me to work out the options and then make a decision. Cowells gives me the facts but helps me understand the options and then guides me to a conclusion with which I am comfortable.

I have worked with Rex for many years in the field of property litigation. Rex is a first class solicitor, with long experience and expertise in property litigation. I have always been happy to work with Rex. He combines efficiency with a sound grasp of property law and an understanding of how to conduct litigation in order to achieve the best commercial result for the client.

Rex provided a prompt, efficient and responsive service. His advice was sound and commercially aware, and resulted in a successfully defended case for Caxtons. I would be happy to recommend him at any time.

Cowells Solicitors have acted for this company for over ten years, and I have nothing but praise for the firm. Any litigation work of a property nature will now go straight to Cowells as the track record is second to none, and more importantly the senior partner ensures all matters are dealt with on a personal level. The firm has advised and received instruction from this company on many issues, such as instructing counsel, lease negotiation, and many smaller matters that still need the sound advice and work of a litigation specialist. As a property company with such interests as acquisition and disposal of freeholds, negotiation of leases, corporate landlord and tenant disputes etc. Cowells have proved themselves over the years to be reliable, professional and discreet.

Rex is responsive and has provided me with straightforward, practical advice on a variety of property litigation aspects. He meets deadlines reliably and keeps costs under control, which I’ve very much appreciated. Rex is a pleasure to deal with.

Director at Marden Oak Ltd


I wanted to express my gratitude for your terrier-like persistence; I am well aware that without you this deal would either have collapsed or else the landlords may have manoeuvred us out of the property deliberately. So many thanks for all your advice and hard work.

We contacted Rex Cowell for help to evict a tennant who stopped paying rent. Rex and the team advised, and guided us through tennant eviction process by providing an optimal solution for our situation.We were frustrated and unaware of how long and how costly the eviction of a tennant can be, but Rex and the team have managed our expectations by communicating clearly, promptly and directly (costs, timelines, court processes, bailiff arrangement, followed up with the court to minimise delays). After the tennant was evicted, Rex and the team have provided further contacts of a debt collector agency, that was much appreciated too. I would recommend their service and would use them again.

Really liked having Rex on board. We always felt he knew what he was talking about, he grasped the questions quickly and offered intelligent well priced advise.
