How can I help you?

I have specialised in Commercial/Civil Litigation and Dispute Resolution since 1995. I have extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with:

  • contentious probate and trust disputes
  • business litigation (partnerships, limited companies and other corporate structures)
  • complex contractual disputes
  • professional negligence
  • insolvency and property disputes

as well as all dispute resolution processes, including mediation.

Contentious probate

A key specialism of mine is representing claimants and estates in respect of grounds for contesting a Will and claims made pursuant to the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975.

Delivering what you really need

I head Tees Litigation and Dispute Resolution service from our Cambridge office. I am able to represent clients based locally, nationally and globally.

Where appropriate I am able to draw upon the legal expertise of my colleagues in other teams to provide advice on specific residential and commercial property, private client, employment and corporate issues as required.

Legal 500 UK 2021 / Leading individual

"I have worked with Sara Stabler, senior associate at Tees Law, on two matters. One was a complex commercial dispute with a great deal of personal animosity between the parties and the other a challenging trust case. In the trust case, Sara showed a maturity beyond her years, standing up to difficult bullying opponents and, frankly, out-lawyering them. In the other, she conducted the negotiation of a settlement with consummate skill, never overstating her case but arguing with forceful reasoning. In my book, she is definitely one to watch for the future."
